Do you like dubstep and other bass-heavy electronic dance music? Then you’re probably going to love getting your face melted at Bassrush Massive Arizona in May.

As its name implies, the event is an EDM festival focusing on bass-oriented music like dubstep, drum 'n' bass, trap, future bass, and similar genres. As such, Bassrush Massive Arizona will feature artists and DJs who are big into the wub wub.

The festival, which was announced last month, will take place on Saturday, May 6, at Rawhide in Chandler. Adventure Club, Flux Pavilion, NGHTMRE, Andy C., Herobust, SayMyName, Phiso, and Tisoki are all scheduled to play the event.

Bassrush is a brand created by LA-based EDM mega-promoter Insomniac and dates back to the '90s. It’s associated with club events and festivals, such as Bassrush Massive Arizona, that take place in cities around the U.S. There’s also a Bassrush record label, which launched last fall.


Bassrush Massive Arizona is being put on by Insomniac and local EDM event promoter Relentless Beats.

Tickets are available through Relentless Beats.
