Excision (real name Jeff Abel) has become one of the best in the game when it comes to hosting big events and festivals. The debut of his The Evolution level was no exception, as his second annual The Thunderdome was downright spectacular.
Located only 40 minutes south of Seattle on the Tacoma Dome the Thunderdome was once again a paradise for bassists. This year, Abel upgraded the show from one to two days, making it more accessible than last year and adding talent. The Thunderdome showed some of the toughest hitters in dance music, including Liquid Stranger 12th Planet Riot Ten Dion Timmer Wooli PhaseOne Trampa Marauda and Champagne drops as well as fast-growing youngsters Trivecta and [1945900900ii] Luc ].
While the cast was reason enough to take part in this year's iteration, Abel sweetened the pot with his debut on his new stage. It is sad to see that The Paradox goes, but The Evolution is a huge improvement. It makes the paradox look like a miniature and completely overshadows it The executioner . The stage was full of surprises, including the "X" shape, an abundance of lasers and rattling bass. Videos, pictures and words do not do the stage justice and anyone who is even a little bit curious has to see the production for themselves. One can say with certainty that The Evolution is completely unique and will play a completely new role for Lost Lands (19459005) and Bass Canyon (19459005). While we have nothing But the praise for this year's Thunderdome left some participants with bad taste. The first day was hit by a catastrophic situation due to a mistake at the end of Ticketmaster. While Abel and his team did everything in their power to solve the problem in time, many fans were excluded from the event until much of the night. Others unfortunately left the queue before coming on the show as the waiting times were up to three hours. However, Abel made up for the fans by extending both days by an additional hour. This gave participants who were late on the first day the opportunity to experience more of the show, and participants on the second day had an even more angry night.
Despite a problem that Abel and his team had completely deprived of, The Thunderdome has proven that he knows how to host major events and knows exactly what he needs to do to keep his fans happy. Year after year, the dubstep don breathes new life into bass music, and it seems he wants to raise the bar at every upcoming event in Kansas City, Minneapolis, Boca Raton and Pittsburgh. Support throughout the tour is just as wild as at The Thunderdome, where Wooli, PhaseOne and Champagne Drip visited the majority of the stops. His tour runs until the end of April and the dates are quickly sold out. Those who have not yet bought their tickets can be found here.
