Festival season will be blooming early in the Midwest this year.

Cities like Chicago and Detroit don’t generally get massive events until Memorial Day Weekend, but Bassnectar is changing that in 2018. Bassnectar expanded his roster of curated events in 2017, with his Freestyle Sessions taking over Denver, bringing a family gathering to Atlantic City, and ending the year with another huge event in Atlanta. Today, he announced his first of four seasonal events in 2018, a massive spring throwdown in Chicago. While Bassnectar is no stranger to the windy city, this is the first time in 7 years that he’s throwing his own event here, and it’s sure to be insane. REZZ, Troyboi TOKiMONSTA, and more will join Bassnectar at the Stephens Convention Center, a venue that has previously hosted wild warehouse-style parties like Reaction NYE, which brought DeadMau5, Skrillex, Zeds Dead and more to the Chicago suburb. Check out the full announcement below, and get your trigger fingers ready for when tickets go on sale Wednesday.


Chicago Spring Gathering 2018 takes place March 30 & 31 at Stephens Convention Center in Chicago. Tickets go on sale Wednesday 11/15 and will be available here.
