Complete Guide to Warped Horizon: The Pre Party & The After Party
Warped Horizon has revealed a stacked lineup this year that will take place in Atlanta, Georgia on Dec. 30 and Dec 31. The 18+ only event will act as a pre party and after party for Bassnectar’s New Year’s Eve performance at the Georgia World Congress Center. Tickets and VIP packages are available to purchase here. However, you will want to act fast as the event has already sold out the past two years in a row.
With top-tier Bass programming, Warped Horizon will take place on two stages held at the specially retrofitted Metro Family Fun Center. Post Future is providing sound by Danley Sound Lab on the main stage, while ThazDope Records will feature PK Sound on the second stage. Doors open at 9 p.m., Dec. 30 and will run until 3 a.m.
On New Year’s Eve, doors open at midnight and the event will run until the sun starts to rise for the first time of 2018.
“Future Sound Bending acts with some of the best state of the art stage production, sound systems, art installments, and performers the south east has to offer. Not to mention an exclusive one of a kind line up filled with top touring acts, exclusive back to back performances and a handful of special guests that will only be revealed at the event its self.” – SOMA Entertainment
Fans can also apply to contribute their talents, skills, and creativity for admission to the event. Warped Horizon is currently accepting applications for Volunteers, Dancers, Flow Performers, Media, Vendors, and Live Art/Installations. Scroll below for application links.

Scroll below for a complete list of the lineup.
Reasons to go!
Glancing through the lineup, fans will notice a lot of the artists who are performing this year have either collaborated on tracks with Bassnectar and/or have performed at events he’s hosted. Considering the potential of some of these b2b sets, upcoming artists, and the amazing sound systems – if you’re looking to keep the party going on NYE, this will put the cherry on top.
Here’s a more detailed look at some of the artists you might not want to miss if you plan on attending.
Top Names in the Game
Killing it in the game, G Jones has been making huge waves across the bass scene this year. He performed a stellar show right after Bassnectar on the main stage at Oregon Eclipse this summer. During that performance, he debuted many songs from his new collaboration EP album with EPROM they called, ‘ACID DISK‘. Those two will continue to tour across the country during December on into early 2018. Special mention to EPROM, who also will also be at Warped Horizon to perform a b2b set with Joker.
Known lately for her ‘FK A Genre’ tour which has been displaying some pretty awesome shows across the country, Mija will be in attendance for more stellar music. Recently, she announced a collaboration benefit concert with Red Bull Sound Select in LA. The show which is on Dec. 16 will help raise funds for My Friend’s Place, a nonprofit youth day shelter located in Hollywood.
The B2B Sets
Dorfex Bos b2b ?
Known for his downtempo collaborations with Bassnectar, which include the self-titled track off Bassnectar’s 2015 album Into The Sun, ‘Horizons’ from Reflective Pt. 1, and most recently ‘Other Worlds‘ from Reflective Pt. 2. – this is anticipated to be a worthy surprise set that fans can only speculate the guest artist to be.
Here’s what Dorfex Bos had to say:
“I’m honored to be included on this bill with this group of geniuses for an insane NYE after party in Atlanta. A special night indeed. I play at 3 a.m. b2b with a good buddy special guest. Shout out to Warped Horizon for having me, and shout out to my new team for making it happen.”
DMVU b2b Proko
Diving into the heavy, this b2b set will surely make the subs quake and your chest shake. Bassnectar is known to regularly drop some of these artists tracks at his shows including DMVU’s explosive single, ‘Bloccd‘ which generated lots of good reviews and remixes this year. Also, Proko’s popular ‘Make it Work‘ received a proper rework from Bassnectar, which he keeps ready in the arsenal for his performances.
Reigning from Philadelphia, Digital Ethos is coming up on the circuit with heavy singles, mixes, and well-known collaborations including, ‘Slather‘ with Bassnectar, which came out earlier this year. Check out his Beat Lab mix from January for a good understanding of his sound, and also an earlier rendition of ‘Slather’ at the end.
Of The Trees
This artist will be in attendance and surely can drop some beats that’ll please. Fans might recognize his remix of Esseks’ ‘Mr. Got Game’, which Bassnectar has played a few times at recent shows. Check out one of his latest releases, a remix of Travis Scott’s ‘Goosebumps’ which takes the song on a tickling and vibey rendition that chops and screws with synthesizer fuzz worth a listen.
Warped Horizon is currently releasing some of the live artists who will be in attendance to enhance the visual stimulation. So far, they’ve announced the following.
“The artwork of Raf Mata will proudly be on display, alongside the man himself as he interprets the insanity that surrounds him during Warped Horizon! Lex Newtho will be returning to Warped Horizon for his second year. More live painters and performers are expected to be announced soon.”
