If you’re near Atlanta, GA around the end of this year, there are many events you could attend to ring in 2018 in entertainment. You might like to catch an NFL game as the Carolina Panthers take on the Atlanta Falcons, or slip in on a sold-out three-night run of Widespread Panic, or check out other headlining acts such as The Roots, Minnesota, and Bassnectar– all playing shows New Years Eve weekend in Atlanta. But if you’re anything like us here at Festival Squad, you want more! More artists, more stages, more sets, and most importantly, more BASS!
Enter: Warped Horizon. This small but growing Bass Music and Live Art event is packed with goodies. After selling out for the two previous years, the forces behind this collaborative event (which includes partnerships with Zen Awakening Festival and many others) have increased capacity and production levels to bring us the best Bass for our Buck. Promising two stages, live art installations, flow performers, vendors, a 3+ AM curfew, and of course a stacked lineup, this isn’t an event you should ignore.
First off: with all the B2B sets listed, I would not be the least bit surprised if more were to happen, unannounced. This is the stuff we fest for, -unique experiences, crafted live by mashing creative forces together. Mija and G Jones are both known to get down on an impromptu B2B set, and not to mention this event screams collaboration. DMVU B2B PROKO is guaranteed to stay heavy the whole set, as are EPROM B2B JOKER- but possibly on a more experimental front. Digital Ethos and Dorfex Bos are both collaborators on the newly released Reflective pt 2 (Bassnectar), and it will be interesting to see if either spins their track or a VIP edit, despite playing the same weekend and in the same city as Bassnectar himself. I listed just a few, but there is so much more on this lineup- each of them worthy of a long listen!
