Take a second to imagine a world. A world where after the fireworks, the festival gates open to safety and comfort instead of panic and chaos. A world where blistering feet, stumbling bodies, and dirt encrusted legs are greeted, ON FESTIVAL GROUNDS by an air-conditioned bus, full of people just like you. Imagine a world, where your home for the weekend IS the pregame AND the after-party, with the assurance of shuttles in between the madness. Imagine Home BASS, the perfect oasis, the perfect party, the perfect electronic home for you.
More times than I’d like to admit, I’ve emerged from a festival not ready to face the Uber/Lyft/Taxi cab chaos that was about to ensue, and at times faced a two hour wait time to get back to the warm embrace of my hotel room. I’d dodge the after-party advertisers in favor of a relaxing shower and my PJ’s, because let’s be real, there’s never time for both. When I see a reoccurring problem, I seek out a solution, and after the fifth time being stranded outside festival gates with thousands of others waiting on a ride, I knew it was time to find that solution.
Cue: Home BASS. The only place in Orlando where you can
party after EDC in your onsie with hundreds of other ravers. The only place where you can have brunch with Dirtybird DJs and do goat yoga. Home BASS offers a multitude of amenities spanning from pool parties, festival hair and makeup artists, and even a live seminar about breaking into the EDM industry presented by yours truly, EDM Maniac. But even more than these crazy luxuries offered to us by Home BASS Orlando is the sense of community.
I had the pleasure of meeting the founder of Home BASS, Brian Thomas, and the operations manager, Darren Scott. Right away I could tell that these guys have put their heart and soul into this event, and that bringing the dance community together to learn, discover, have a good time, and give back to the community is their top priority. This is evident through their efforts to make even lone ravers feel like part of the family, by matching up attendees that may be coming alone, with people who have similar interests to room with at the Grand Orlando Resort, and the fact that some of the proceeds from the weekend will go to Give Kids the World Village.

Positive reviews for Home BASS come not from YELP, but from palpable, emotional stories attendees tell after this epic weekend. For example, after last year’s Home BASS Orlando comes an electronic love story, a marriage after two lone ravers were matched up and stayed together for the weekend. Complete strangers, turned to lovers and best friends for the rest of their lives. These are the experiences that fuel Brian’s fire as he is coming up with improvements as each year passes by.
Imagine a weekend where you can not only party at a world-class music festival, but also come home to a beautiful sense of community and fun. Imagine making new friends, and running into old ones. Imagine bonding, and popping bottles with family as you soak in the melodies of some of today’s great DJs. Imagine Home BASS.
