This past weekend, Bassnectar really, really brought the bass, even to those who may not have asked for it. The superstar producer/DJ brought his first-ever Bass Center festival, a hand-curated, two-day event to Commerce City, Colorado, where residents not participating in the festival got more than they never bargained for.

Apparently, the sounds of the heart thumping bass were loud enough to reach as far as 5 miles and created what was described as a “sonic boom” throughout the area. One comment made to the Commerce City Council equated the feeling of bass thumping through his home to that of an earthquake.

Although Commerce City Mayor Sean Ford has said that he did not research Bassnectar’s music prior to issuing the concert permit, he maintains that the festival did stay within the agreed noise limits.
