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.
Wondering what to wear to Ultra? The most important thing to consider when choosing your Ultra outfits is to make sure you can dance all day and night comfortably. It’s definitely a music-heavy festival so you’ll most likely be on your feet most of the time. Check out these styles for some fabulous rave outfits inspiration.
