After a rocking start to the Freestyle Sessions festivities, Bassnectar and his team are now scrambling to find a new venue after a sudden systems malfunction.


Update 6:30pm PT: Bassnectar has officially announced that Freestyle Sessions will return tomorrow night at the Denver Coliseum for a Freestyle Party. If you have a 3-day pass, Saturday ticket, or Sunday ticket to our Summer Gathering in Broomfield, you will be able to use that ticket to get into the new Sunday party. Refunds will be available for Saturday attendees who do not redeem it on Sunday.

Head over to his website for all the details surrounding Freestyle Party, refund details, and more.


This weekend, bassheads from near and far flocked to the Mile High City to join Bassnectar for his annual Freestyle Sessions show. Hosted over three days, this think-outside-the-box musical experience intended to bring a deeper dive into the bass world with throwbacks, rare tracks, and plenty more. Paired with sets from artists like Joker, Shades, The Librarian, and Phutureprimitive among others slated to perform, the weekend’s bass-fueled party started off without a hitch last night.

Today, though, Bassnectar and his team are currently scrambling to find a new venue or space to host the remaining nights of the show as the First Bank Center has experienced an “unexpected systems malfunction”. This has forced the venue to go under immediate repairs that will take a week and came as a shock not just to the fans who are in Denver but also Bassnectar and his team as well.

While the show itself hasn’t been officially cancelled, a clear solution to this unexpected occurrence hasn’t surfaced yet either. Bassnectar has been communicating regularly on a variety of different platforms to keep everyone updated on the situation that is at hand. He’s already responded to a number of tweets stating that they are exploring options and brainstorming to fix this absolutely bizarre situation.

So if you’re in Denver right now and waiting for news, take some advice from Bassnectar and relax as they’re working in overdrive to fix this. Stay tuned as this story continues to develop!
