After a headlining slot at Lollapalooza next week, the sonic thrust of Bassnectar takes over North America this fall. Every bit of junk in Target Center's trunk is gonna get rattled in the process.
Touring on the strength of Vava Voom, which pairs the wobbles and drops of dubstep and a kinetic hip-hop energy via guest shouts by Lupe Fiasco and more, the hair-slinging Bassnectar mastermind Lorin Ashton's traveling parade of lights and revelry plots 28 dates for the near future. Additionally, add the power of guests Zedd, Gramatik, and Gladkill to boot for its Minneapolis stop. Check out the itinerary and sample the new album below.
