2012 was a huge year for Bassnectar, playing in massive venues, releasing VAVA VOOM with collabs from Lupe Fiasco, Angel Haze, Mimi Page and DC Breaks, selling out two nights at Red Rocks Ampitheater and his New Years show at Nashville’s Bridgestone Arena. But for this 2013 Spring Tour, Bassheads are getting a change of pace from large overcrowded venues. This tour starts with a string of intimate shows, kicking the tour off April 24th in Burlington, Vermont and continue down the East Coast for three weeks with the Ambassador’s Busnectar.

“In the last two years we have expanded to large venues and arenas and that has been fulfilling and fun. However,  there is nothing like the feeling of the more intimate clubs and theaters . I wanted to find some tighter options and put together a nonstop 3 week rollercoaster of ram-packed rooms which feel like they are exploding from the inside out. It’s basically a run of festivals until the fall, so this short blitz is our chance to go completely buck wild before summertime.”BASSNECTAR

Rotating supporting acts will include Michal Menert, Griz, Arcnemesis, & Up Until Now. Thriftworks will be opening the show on all dates. The tour wraps up in Chattanooga on May 12th. Fan club tickets will go on sale February 6th at noon Eastern Time, and public on sale starts February 8th and 9th. Also, three dates have been released that are secret specials shows. 3/30 a Canadian Special, 5/3 a Southern Special, and 5/31-6/1 Colorado Special.
