This is a big week for electronic music in Phoenix. First, we hear tell of a new club coming to downtown Phoenix. Then, Goldrush 2019 drops its second wave of artists. But it turns out those stories were just building up to a final, massive drop — Bassrush Massive, that is.
Bassrush Massive Arizona, the one-day festival returning to Rawhide Western Town and Events Center on Saturday, August 24, has just released its 2019 lineup. Flux Pavilion, the English DJ behind dubstep classic "I Can't Stop," will headline, supported by a mighty handful of bass-focused EDM acts. Behind him are the likes of Black Tiger Sex Machine, Herobust, Riot Ten, Mastadon, Zeke Beats, and Sharps.
The bass music rave is hosted by Relentless Beats of Goldrush and Phoenix Lights fame and EDC promoter Insomiac.
Tickets for Bassrush will drop (excuse us) today, Friday, July 12, at 10 a.m. via relentlessbeats.com. A basic ticket is $49 before fees, while VIP passes start at $79. The event is for partiers ages 18 and up. Stay tuned for more info on this and other EDM events in metro Phoenix.
