San Francisco-based bass producer Bassnectar returns to the Bay Area this fall with his “Immersive Music Tour” on September 19 at Oakland’s Fox Theater and September 21 at San Jose State University.
“Our goal is to bring you the most immersive Bassnectar experience possible this fall with enhanced production, enhanced ambassador immersion and an alphabet of special effects,” the producer said in an announcement today. “We want to create the ideal atmosphere for people to lose themselves in the depths of music, like a journey to another world.”
Bassnectar last performed in Oakland and San Jose last May for gigs that quickly sold out.
“I think when people are at a Bassnectar show, there is an atmosphere of abandon that is also supported by an atmosphere of community,” he told San Jose’s Metro Metro Newspaper before his last concerts. “I don’t do drugs, I’m a very health-conscious person. I’ve got a very positive, humanistic type of personality. I’m trying to create an atmosphere where people are safe to go fucking buck wild and crazy for a couple hours. I guess I lead by example.”
Tickets for the concerts go on sale July 19, with per-sale for the Oakland show on July 18. Bassnectar also performs regionally in Reno on September 20.
