Bass Canyon is one of my favorite festivals because it brings those classic Pacific Northwest festival vibes and has some of my favorite music. The festival kicks off this weekend, and here is what you need to know if this is your first trip to Bass Canyon:
What is Bass Canyon?
Bass Canyon is one of Excision’s curated festivals and is home to some of the biggest bass names in the industry. This is Bass Canyon’s 3rd year at the gorge and is back and bigger than ever. With over 25,000 attendees, this festival is famous for bone-rattling bass with an incredible view.
Where is Bass Canyon?
Bass Canyon takes place at the Gorge Amphitheatre in Washington State between August 18-20th. The Gorge Amphitheatre is rated the #1 most beautiful outdoor venue in the country, and you’ll see why as soon as you walk over that hill.
Who is playing at Bass Canyon?
The lineup is packed with world renowned DJs and Producers. There will be a total of 3 stages! They will be called the Main Stage, Hilltop Stage and the Locals Stage. The Main Stage will feature Excision, Dion Timmer, Ganja White Knight + many more! Check out the lineup below.
The local lineup is INSANE! It is home to many PNW locals and will definitely be worth checking out.
What should I wear to Bass Canyon?
Feel free to check out our guide on what to wear to raves that has links to all of the latest style secrets! Keep in mind, the venue does get cold at night, so make sure to pack a warm change of clothes for when the sun goes down. There will be lockers available to stash your clothes inside the venue.
Most importantly, you will be doing a LOT of walking—so make sure to wear sensible walking shoes. The “Bag Policy” at the Gorge changed for this event so make sure your bag is smaller than 12’’ x 12’’ x 6” and it has to be clear! (Hydration packs are okay but they must have a clear bladder). Fanny packs will not be allowed if they are not clear.
What should I bring to Bass Canyon?
Bass Canyon is a camping festival, so come prepared. There are hotels about 45 minutes away but the majority of attendees will be camping. If you are camping, check out our guide to preparing for camping festivals here. There are food vendors inside the festival as well as in the campground so snacks are fine until you get inside.
Halloween is fast approaching, and we all know the best part of this holiday is choosing the ultimate costumes! As ravers, we are no strangers to dressing up, and Halloween is an awesome time to show off our style skills. There are so many directions you can go in when deciding what to be for Halloween, so we’re giving you some suggestions to make your decision a little easier.
Out Of This World
Extraterrestrial themes are huge in the rave world, and Halloween is the best excuse to dress up as a sexy alien or a house-loving astronaut. There are also a ton of opportunities for couples and group costumes that fit this theme! Build an alien squad with your friends in the Cosmic Chaos Alien Costume and the Solstice Kiss Holo Set, or explore the unknown in matching astronaut suits. Add some glitter, and you will surely have an out-of-this-world Halloween experience!
Embrace Your Wild Side
Feeling wild this spooky season? Cowgirl costumes are super cute and perfect for any Halloween event. Embrace your wild side and let loose with a cowboy hat and your best chaps, or make it glam!
Certain costumes will never go out of style. Classic costumes come back every year because they are timeless. If you’re feeling scary this Halloween, try a holographic skeleton or a seductive devil costume. If you’re going for a flirtier vibe, you can never go wrong with the Team Techno Cheerleader outfit. This fit is a fun take on the basic cheerleader costume! You can make any of the classics your own with glitter, accessories, and other modern twists.
Have a legendary Halloween dressed as your favorite mythical creature! Fairies, elves and unicorns are not only charming characters, but they are also very trendy right now. These Fractal Fantasy Fairy Wings will transform any outfit into an enchanting fairy ensemble. You could also pair this Rainbow Unicorn Costume with some sparkly fishnets for a dazzling festival look!
Ravers love to dress up year-round. But if there's one thing that we don't get to do often, it's bring the spooky vibes with scary costumes around Halloween! This time of year is the perfect time to show off your spooky side, with costumes that are gory, creepy, or all around terrifying.
No matter what you decide to be this year, you can’t go wrong. As long as you’re feeling like your best self, you’re going to slay this Halloween!
