Bassnectar
Bassnectar
Bassnectar is one of the longest standing and most respected artists in American electronic dance music, often referred to simply as the EDM scene. He is the original long hair behind the tables, having been in the game well before most of his contemporaries and amassing an epic fan base with over 250k tickets sold to his solo shows alone in 2011. His art brazenly oversteps the bounds of contemporary EDM, pulling from a dynamic array of source material and attracting lovers of all genres, from dubstep to metal, punk rock, hip hop, and all forms of EDM (drum & bass, trip hop, etc.) and beyond. His art is more than just an auditory experience; it serves to evoke all human senses with live shows that feature unparalleled light shows and awe-inspiring visual queues. Bassnectar intends to not only foster its own community of loyal Bass Heads, but also contribute to the global community at large through charity and social change.
Bassnectar is particularly infamous for incomparably raucous live shows that feature state of the art lightshows and enough bass to work crowds into palpable frenzies. His performances are so successful and sought out that in 2011 he made the top 3 hard ticket sales along with fellow EDM artists Deadmau5 and Tiesto. The Bassnectar tour, which travels with its own custom sound rig, has headlined stops at some of the most noted venues and festivals in the country and always attracts massive sold-out crowds, some numbering over 10,000 for non-festival solo show dates. In addition to celebrated sets at Coachella, Lollapalooza, ACL, Bonnaroo, and Ultra Music Festival, Ashton has inaugurated his own daylong extravaganza for EDM lovers of all ages. Dubbed the Bass Center, this sonic celebration has completely sold out in its first two years, 2010 and 2011, and has featured the likes of Brother Ali, Glitch Mob, Wolfgang Gartner, That 1 Guy and Dan Deacon and will feature electro house superstar A-Trak in 2012.

Special Note About CamelBak-style Water Bladder Systems
Although CamelBak-style water bladder systems are allowed empty into the venue, the water bladders themselves must be capable of being removed from the carrier and must be transparent enough to allow security to visually inspect the empty bladder. Any CamelBak-style water bladder system that cannot be removed from the carrier and/or is opaque enough to prevent visual inspection should not be allowed into the venue.

Prescription medications are allowed only in the original prescription bottle, any persons attempting to bring in prescription medication must have a government- issued photo identification card that matches the name printed on the prescription, and the pills in the bottle must match the description printed on the prescription. Further, if a patron has mixed multiple pills in a single prescription container or if a person is attempting to enter with prescription pills in a non- prescription container, security will be involved to make the final determination about whether or not such pills are to be allowed in the venue.
Over-the-counter medications are allowed in provided that they are new and the original, factory-sealed container.
Gramatik
Gramatik
Gramatik continues to prove himself as a relentless musical force, consistently putting out new releases and making people lose their marbles at his sold-out shows all over the world. Following his seminal 2016 album Epigram and subsequent remix EP’s he kept the streak going all year, while also gracing the stage at some of the biggest summer festivals like EDC Las Vegas, Metropop, Camp Bisco, Lollapalooza, Moonrise, Red Rocks and more.

In January of 2017 there was a long-awaited reunion with another funk mastermind, GRiZ, on “As We Proceed”. The new GRiZMATiK track received excellent reviews from outlets like Dancing Astronaut, Run The Trap, EDM.com and plenty more, while also exceeding 1.2M plays on SoundCloud and reaching 2M on Spotify. Gramatik followed it up with a remix of Flume’s track “Wall Fuck” (1.22M plays on SC) which he produced with young Canadian artist, Ramzoid. The track was premiered on notorious Colorado-based blog Thissongissick, reached #1 on SoundCloud’s electronic chart and also performed well on Hype Machine. Then it was time to focus on the three singles leading up to his latest EP, “Re:Coil Part I”; on “Recovery” Gramatik teamed up with old buddy Eric Krasno and the bright, melodic jam caught the attention of Billboard who snagged it for an exclusive premiere. The next single, “Voyager Twins” was a collaboration with mysterious, Armada-affiliated act, fittingly called Galactic Marvl and on the last single from new EP he joined forces with new Lowtemp signee, Balkan Bump. The single’s title “Aymo” translates to “let’s go” in the majority of ex-Yugoslavian countries, including Slovenia, where Gramatik is from originally.

Appropriately, the single dropped just before Gramatik headed out on a huge fall tour across the EU, visiting 26 cities along the way. During the tour, on October 20th, he treated his fans to the release of “Re:Coil Pt. I’' EP and just like the year before when he was dropping “Epigram”, the release party for the heavily anticipated new release took place at the legendary Paris venue, Zenith.

Another important milestone was awaiting on November 9th during his show in Zurich. As one of the pioneering artists embracing crypto-culture and the new blockchain-based technologies that work towards decentralization, he launched his own token, GRMTK, in collaboration with SingularDTV. This revolutionary new approach promises a convergence of network and data that will allow creators to bypass gatekeepers and intermediaries and seize control of their intellectual property. The full goal was reached within 24 hours and all together 2,3 million dollars in ETH were raised with hardly breaking a sweat, signaling that people are open to the new distribution models. Gramatik will be testing them in early 2018 when his follow-up “Re:Coil Part II” EP will be completed and ready to drop. The revolution will be tokenized!
