Insomniac’s longest running festival returned to the San Manuel Amphitheater to celebrate its 21st anniversary with an epic three-day bash that took a special dip into the filthier side of things as Team Bassrush brought the heat with a massive takeover for Day Two.
From the bone crushing sound system and the pyrotechnics that literally kept the place lit, to the energy the bass heads brought, it was pretty obvious there was only one place to be for Day Two. This was truly a bass head’s dream filled with some unforgettable moments and experiences.
Gentlemen’s Club Bring the UK Vibes
One of Saturday night’s most anticipated sets was the UK-based trio Gentlemen’s Club, comprised of 50 Carrot, Coffi and Soloman. Fans swarmed the Labyrinth stage ready for a grime-filled set and happily got more than they bargained for. With all original tracks, epic VIPs, and brain-melting remixes being blasted through the speakers like daggers through the crowd, the bass kept the masses mashing in sync with each drop. From the looks of it, the bass squad was having just as much fun as the crowd was.
Liquid Stranger Creates a Bass Dreamland
If you’re a true bass head, you know there is no way you’d miss the legendary performance of Liquid Stranger at the Labyrinth stage. Taking us on a soul searching journey through a perfect mix of mellow and heavy bass music, the Stranger helped us all ride out in a state of euphoria.
Caspa & Rusko Take Us Back to Our Roots
If there’s anyone who knows how to throw down a proper dubstep set it’s the dubstep dons themselves, Caspa & Rusko. For their hour-long performance, the pair left little breathing room between bangers as they served up old-school tracks like “Woo Boost” as well as the new-school grooves that closed the night out in the most epic way possible.
Gettin’ Lit at the Smirnoff House
The Smirnoff House was the place to be if you were looking for a change in pace, but still wanted to be drenched in bass from head to toe. Creating epic house party vibes, the 21-and-up hub brought you up close and personal to some of bass musics finest like TroyBoi, G Jones, and Liquid Stranger, in case you didn’t get enough bass from them earlier at the Labyrinth!
Corona Electric Beach Party
Wandering around the grounds it was impossible to ignore booming bass coming from the epic beach party hosted by Corona, because adding a pool smack in the middle of a festival won’t hurt anyone, right? Properly equipped with bars all throughout, poolside DJ performances, and black lights, the Electric Beach was where you wanted to be if you wanted to escape to a shore side beach party with a twist!
Keeping the Party Going After Hours
The Silent Disco, located in the campgrounds, kept the nocturnal creatures moving until the break of dawn. Even if you didn’t purchase a camping pass, those with VIP wristbands were allowed access to the party with campers!
