Are you with Team Basscon or Team Bassrush? Get prepped for the ultimate battle for brand supremacy at Project Z this July with all of the essential information!

Both Bassrush and Basscon have found success in the dance music world through their special event takeovers and festivals, and it’s always a special treat when this friendly rivalry comes to a heated close on the battlefield at Project Z. This year, the festival is making its way back to the NOS Event Center in San Bernardino for an epic one-day event where the two brands will go toe-to-toe in a clash for the ages. Project Z is bringing the best of the best in bass and hard dance music to claim the glory that comes with brand supremacy.

This year will be one of the biggest editions of the festival as the festival is hosting five stages for the first time ever. On July 2, the greatest leaders in the scene are taking over the many stages including the likes of Flux Pavilion, Space Laces, and SVDDEN DEATH. On the hard dance side, Basscon enlisted international superstars Brennan Heart, Darren Styles, and Adrenalize to guide their army through heavenly melodies and banging reverse bass. Other must-see acts include the epic B2B between Kumarion and REAPER, INZO, Getter, and of course, the homegrown hard dance artists such as TYEGUYS, KAMI, and Water Spirit.

With a multitude of high-energy artists set to play at the event, it’s very important to remember to hydrate and pace yourself if you or anyone in your group chooses to partake in any drinking. Remember that the medics are there for your safety, so never hesitate to ask for some help if you need it. Hard dance and bass music are also known to be extremely loud and often distorted, so don’t forget to wear a pair of quality earplugs either!

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 2022.
