Bassnectar Brings Bass Island to Governors Island

August 11th, 2011

Hot weather, hot music, hot fun in the summertime! Bassnectar knows a thing or two about festivals. And this Saturday at South Island Field is your very last chance to see Bassnectar in the Northeast for the rest of 2011. That alone would be enough reason to hop on a ferry to Governors Island, but Bass Island is about much more than just Lorin Ashton’s free-form-electronica alter ego. It’s a mashup of music, art and culture, plus it’s eight hours of one hit act after another: Bassnectar (above, doing “Here We Go” at last year’s Shambala), Lupe Fiasco, Z-Trip, Prefuse 73, Virtual Boy, Dave Nada and Joro Boro. Come on out. Enjoy the sights, enjoy the sounds and enjoy yourself. Summer won’t last forever. And make sure you check out Bassnectar’s Bass Island survival guide.
