Bass Camp Festival IV makes waves at Lake Tahoe

Bass Camp 18

Bass Camp Festival IV was a resounding success.

The annual EDM celebration at Lake Tahoe was held for the second-straight year at the Hard Rock Hotel and Casino at South Shore’s Casino Corridor. Organizers shook things up with more than $200,000 of stage lighting, sound and special effects. There were more live artists featured than ever before and the weather was typical Tahoe gorgeous: 77 degrees, light breeze and a clear, blue sky. And 10,000 square feet of turf was installed for the Aug. 6-7 event.

Tahoe Onstage“Bringing in the grass obviously was a huge thing,” said Paul Reder, the president of the Bass Camp Festival. “The attendees loved laying in, and playing in, the grass. It was an element that added to the overall ambiance of the festival.”

Krewella, Hermitude and Justin Jay and Friends starred on Day 1 and and Nero and Borgeous highlighted Day 2.

Reder said Bass Camp will return next year. In the meanwhile, Hard Rock again will be the location for the 4th annual Lake Tahoe Reggae Festival on Saturday, Aug. 20. The setup will be the same, with 10,000 square feet of turf and a capacity of 7,500. The bands include Pepper, Ky-Mani Marley, Israel Vibration & Roots Radics, Don Carlos, Mike Love, Squarefield Massive, DJ Dinga and DJ Casta Rasta.

Bass Camp Festival will bring in another EDM show to the area on Oct. 13 when Seven Lions appears at the Cargo Concert Hall in Reno. A Santa Barbara whose psytrance alias is DJ Sven, Seven Lions headlined the first Bass Camp Festival four years ago at MontBleu Resort Casino & Spa.
