Vital Events, the home of neck-breaking, bass driven festivals in Northern California, has outdone themselves with Toxic Summer 2017! Seen as the Holy Grail for bass heads, Toxic Summer went off with a bang in sunny San Jose, CA at the City National Civic. With the filthy line up for this two day festival, with big names such as 12th Planet, Must Die!, Funtcase & Cookie Monsta, necks were effectively broken.
On day 1, the crowd was rowdy, but as per usual for Vital events, everyone was incredibly kind. The bass was powerful, with Jphelpz B2B Bommer, Shiverz B2B Obey & Space Laces starting the night off strong! As the night progressed, the bass got stronger and louder, with 12th Planet B2B Must Die! ending the night with Toxic Summer neck braces for the hardcore headbanger, the rail squad.
Day 2 continued with bass heads galore, head banging and breaking necks with riddim and dubstep inspired sets. Yakz B2B Svdden Death, Squanto, & more, started the night off with heavy hitters. Every time I’ve been to a Vital event, I always feel this deep rooted sense of community among all my fellow headbangers. Everyone is so incredibly kind at these events, spreading PLUR while breaking necks together. The night finished off with the two riddim and dubstep legends, Funtcase B2B Cookie Monsta, making for an excellent ending to an incredible night and weekend.

I'm a college student majoring in business with a love for EDM music and festivals. I live for the vibes, the kind souls, and the heaviest bass music I can get!
