This past weekend, artists and bands rang in 2019 with their closest fans at every corner of the country. It’s typical for fans to travel near and wide to ring in the new year with their favorite artists. Among the most spectacular of those gatherings is undoubtedly Bassnectar‘s New Year’s Eve 360 event, which features a massive 360 degree stage design, complete with LED displays hanging from the ceilings, full surround PK Sound, and 48 ground subwoofers.
After taking a year off from the arena-sized spectacle, Bassnectar returned to his most famed live production, dubbing the event “Return To 360.” The event took place at the Greensboro Coliseum in North Carolina with a total attendance of 22,300 bass heads, setting a third place all-time record of attendees for the venue, behind The Backstreet Boys and Phish, respectively. Commenting on the sheer size of the event, “I can’t believe how large this thing has become,” said Lorin Ashton, the face behind the Bassnectar project.
Now fans of Bassnectar’s amorphous sound can watch the full extended set, which clocks in at just over two hours. Surrounded by a stadium of his most avid followers, Ashton is the unassuming centerpiece of the event, although he admits to feeling weary at the fact.
