Are you ready to fight for Team Basscon or Team Bassrush this weekend at Project Z? Get prepped with all the essential info!


While Insomniac’s Bassrush and Basscon have both stood out over the years with some fantastic events and stage takeovers, there are few things that are quite nearly as epic as when the two go toe-to-toe at Project Z. Hosted at the NOS Events Center in San Bernardino, this single-day event brings some of the best from the bass music and hard dance scenes, pitting the two hard-hitting genres against each other for an experience unlike any other.

This year will see some of the biggest artists who have graced the scene take the stage on November 27 with immediate must-sees including artists such as NERO, The Glitch Mob, Rusko, Lil Texas, Frontliner, DJ The Prophet, and ATLiens, among others. Additionally, the sets from CharlestheFirst, Jantsen, HVDES, and LNY TNZ are ones you should definitely check out, while the b2b featuring 12th Planet and Barely Alive is set to be out of this world as well.

Beyond the music at Project Z, attendees will be able to play some games of laser tag, check out the vendor village, and grab some food as well to refuel their engines. To help everyone prepare for the battle ahead, we’ve compiled all the info you need to know before you go. So check out the set times, festival map, and more below – and let us know who you’re most excited to catch!

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 partygoers and it’s important to be mindful of your valuables while at Project Z 2021.
