If your 2021 was anything like mine, it went by in the blink of an eye. There is less than a month until we ring in the New Year and with so many festivals to choose from, saying “Hello, 2022” is sure to be a blast.

Featuring artists such as Herobust, Steve Aoki, TroyBoi, REZZ, and Subtronics, Decadence Colorado is going to be a bass-heavy event this year. Taking a hint from the logo, guests are likely to see more gold this New Year’s Eve compared to 2019.

Moonlight Masquerade |Portland, Oregon | 12/31/2021-01/01/2022
Another event for the bassheads, Moonlight Masquerade includes some artists not yet mentioned on this list. Kill the Noise, Jason Ross, Inzo, Ganja White Night, and Peekabo, for a start, but also must include Seven Lions. The name of the event has me wondering if the masks are for the eyes or for the mouth…
OMFG! |San Diego, California | 12/30-12/31/2021
Coming back for its ninth year, OMFG! brings a multi-genre lineup of artists Cash Cash, Hex Cougar, Zeds Dead, Dillon Francis and others to this two day fest.
