There is no doubt that Summer 2019 has been absolutely huge for the bass music scene. The smaller acts that we’ve had to check out in small bars are now rocking major festivals playing on massive sound rigs playing in front of thousands of perspective fans. As Summer draws to a close, there is one event that all lovers of dubs and wubs must attend; Sound Haven Music Festival in Tennessee taking place August 8th-11th.
With a lineup more stacked than a Scooby-Doo sandwich backed by Funktion One Sound, it has everything a true bass head could ever need. There is a ton of heat on this lineup including headlining performances from ill.Gates, Shlump & Mersiv and support from Brightside, Eazybaked, G-Space, Mystic Grizzly, The Widdler and more. We decided to put together a list of 5 artists (in no particular order) playing this southern throw down that you should 100% find yourself at.
