Favorite ThisEMISSIONS: West Coast Bass Culture 2011 Preview

Published: April 28, 2011

Camp Question Mark and Irie Cartel are once again collaborating to present Emissions: West Coast Bass Culture 2011, May 13-15. Now in its 3rd year, the festival boasts a lineup the combines up-and-comers in the bass music scene, with artists on the verge of breakout festival seasons. Really, Emissions is a celebration of what West Coast Bass has accomplished in just a few short years. Combining the aesthetics of dubstep, glitch, and hip-hop, all the artists on the bill--and there are a ton--are purveyors of a scene which is truly American, but with a worldwide feel.

Located 2 hours due West of San Francisco, at the edge of the Stanislaus National Forest in Toulumne, CA, Emissions is about  bassheads gathering in the woods to get down and share their trade.  The new site provides flat, shaded camping areas, and an overall beautiful setting. Doesn't look like the music will stop for even a second over the course of the three days. If you're looking for the hottest tastemaking sounds in West Coast and bass music, look no further than Emissions.
