This past weekend at Moonrise Festival in Baltimore, MD., Bassnectar, (Lorin Ashton) was given the green light to curate his own stage at the 2016 Moonrise. Nothing has been confirmed at the moment about whether or not Lorin will be taking this task, however there has been some major implication that he is leaning towards doing so. This news had his followers, known as "bassheads," in a state of pure ecstasy knowing that their Leader could possibly be on his way to creating his own stage with his own artistic views.
Since the news about curating his own stage at Moonrise Festival 2016 had dropped, the petition to have Bassnectar start his own festival has been the topic of conversation for many. There have been 9,780 signatures on this petition in order to have Lorin and his team start a three-night camping festival with a two hour set each night by none other than Bassnectar. The "bassheads" are looking to have artists at this festival that emulate the same values as Bassnectar, in that there are only positive and good vibes in attendance.
"It's always nice to see so much enthusiasm!" Lorin exclaimed when asked by "basshead," Leo Mayo on a Question and Answer section on his website at www.bassnectar.net. Unfortunately, he went on to explain that it may not be possible at the current time, but if he chooses to organize another one, he said, "it won't be because of a petition, it will be because it's a feasible undertaking." The picture below shows the question with response from Lorin.
There is still hope on the horizon that Bassnectar will be curating his own stage in the following year at Moonrise Festival 2016, but "bassheads" will have to hold on tight until he is ready to implement his own festival entirely, and in this house, we think that would be epic.
