Project Z 2017 is just around the corner, and we’ve got all your essential info here in one place.
Tomorrow is the day to head-bang, shuffle, and really find your inner self as Basscon and Bassrush, two of Insomniac Events’ strongest brands, take over the Nos Events Center for Project Z. While each brand focuses on the heavier aspects of electronic dance music, you can guarantee that everyone will be breaking a sweat before the day is over.
With the addition of a third stage, whether you’re there for the hardstyle or the bass or even the the wubz there’s going to be something for everyone this year.This will be my first year attending and I’m excited to break my neck and really get down, so hopefully I’ll catch you on the rail!

Project Z 2017 Festival and Parking Maps
Reminder To Mind Your Belongings
Unfortunately, many people have reported pickpockets, bag slashings, and theft of wallets, smartphones, purses and other valuables during this festival season. While this small number of bad apples in the bunch doesn’t define an entire crowd, there are opportunistic people who come to these events to take advantage of unsuspecting party goers and it’s important to be mindful of your valuables while at Project Z.
Pay attention to who’s around you and what’s going on around you. Keep your wallet and phone in your front pocket(s) if you can. Treat your phone the same way you would treat cash; don’t set it down on a table or bar and look away. If a friend isn’t standing behind you in a crowd, be careful of your backpack or purse, and don’t put valuables in a pocket that could easily be unzipped by someone behind in a crowded spot without you realizing.
Festivals, in general, are a very densely populated place and are a well-known place where pick-pocketing of unsuspecting people occurs. It’s easy to find yourself in a crowded environment in a line, at a stage in the festival, elevator, or even out on the street where someone could slip your wallet or phone our of your pocket or bag in a matter of seconds. Stay alert, be careful, and make sure to not carry more than what you need!

Since its inception, Bassrush has produced hundreds of events around the U.S. such as Bassrush Massive, Uprising, and Funktion, catering to bass music fans since the early 2000s. The brand has evolved from its strictly drum & bass roots to include dubstep, trap, and other bass-oriented genres.
Basscon was created shortly after the massive Bassrush movement, featuring harder genres of dance music while gaining popularity with continuously sold-out events such as Wasteland and Sanctuary. Together, the two have created a bass-centric community of music lovers and tastemakers, uniting all forms of bass styles with Project: Z.
