Stephens Convention Center in Rosemont, IL.
Bassnectar’s full-scale return to Chicago commemorates a number of milestones: a new EP in the form of Reflective: Part 2 (available on all platforms December 1st), 7 years since two raucous & legendary nights at Congress Theater, the rebirth and regeneration of Spring, and the first in a four-part nationwide series of seasonal family gatherings from Bassnectar. Included at this gathering will be the hallmarks of previous Bassnectar family gatherings: The Haven, Gift Altar, Interactive Art Zones, Roaming Performers, Live Artists, and Ambassadors throughout the event ensuring a stellar fan experience.
