Bassnectar at Ultra Music Festival 2012: A 15-Photo Recap
On the last night of the fest, his heavy metal/electronic alchemy destroyed Ultra Music Festival 2012's Live Stage as 6,500 beat freaks raved, raged, and howled. His hourlong set ripped through more genres, samples, and live effects than a chainsaw through a jukebox, wired to a particle accelerator.
By 11:03 p.m., it was all over. But the crowd screamed, "One more song!," "Encore!," and "More bass!" like rabid EDM-addicted aliens.
In the final five minutes of his show, a white confetti mushroom cloud exploded over the stage. Then suddenly, he disappeared. Here's what our camera caught before its battery died.
