BADASS Raves' flagship festival Big Dub is celebrating its 6th year this August, and after last year's debauchery, we cannot wait to return to the mountain at Four Quarters Farm! Year after year, campers return to Big Dub Festival for a family reunion of sorts; four days of connection, music, community, and fun. Filling the forest with Theme Camps and groups of revelers, we found nary a dull moment in 2014, and vowed like many before us to block off this festival in our schedules permanently. Read our #PartyReport from 2014.

The Fireworks! Last year's incredible display right over our vending tent blew us away! We were treated to front row seats along with the rest of our new Big Dub Festival family on the main field's vendor row across from the Main Stage to close out the festival Saturday night. We can't wait to relive this tradition!!

Seminars and Workshops! Each year, the number and breadth of these little educational classes grows. From Flow Arts like hooping and silks, to seminars on Love and relationships, and workshops on BSDM, theres always something new and exciting to learn. Classes are drop in and most suit all levels. Check out some of the planned activities, events and workshops for this year, HERE.
Theme Camps! One of our favorite aspects of the BADASS festival brand is the community involvement; before each festival, patrons are given many opportunities to get involved with the event itself. Theme camps are a great way for campers to shape their festival experience for themselves and then share it with others! There are currently 25 theme camps registered for Big Dub 2015. Thats 25 new ways to experience this festival! Read all about them HERE.

The Music: As always, we're impressed with the lineup that BADASS has amassed for us this year. A well-balanced plate which naturally features a healthy portion of Dubstep, Bass music and Trap, also features an appreciable amount of (something else). Multiple locals round out the schedule, giving patrons a sneak peek at a few up and coming artists and crowd favorites. Not sure what to expect?

<![CDATA[Badass' Dreamscape gets a Festival Upgrade]]>Wed, 01 Apr 2015 18:49:02 GMThttp://www.fvckreallife.com/upcoming/badass-dreamscape-gets-a-festival-upgrade
Picture
The dreamy spring-time twin sister of Badass Raves' Nightmare Festival has earned its festival wings this year! Over the past few years, BADASS has been throwing a set of themed parties; Nightmare at the end of October for Halloween, and Dreamscape in May celebrating the return of spring. 2 years ago, Nightmare became a multi-night event when BADASS found the quaint Camp Ramblewood; an ideal venue for a small outdoor festival. After a second successful year of Nightmare the festival, they're upgrading Dreamscape to the festival level as well. Much like Nightmare, Dreamscape will be held at Camp Ramblewood, have cabins available for purchase, and will feature a genre-spanning and varied line up of up and coming artists and headliners. Instead of a haunted theme however, Dreamscape will focus on the natural beauty and wonder of nature and her secrets. 

'Bass'ics

  • May 8-10, 2015; Gates Open Friday, May 8th at 2pm, and close Sunday at 3pm.
  • Location: Camp Ramblewood in Darlington, MD
  • 4 stages; City of Dreams in the Warehouse, Pool Parties at the Pool, Block Parties at the Barn, and NYCR at the Thunderdome
  • Tickets:   18+ GA Camping: $115     18+ Cabins: $980+ fees (incl tickets for 7 people)
  • Lineup:
Picture

We're looking forward to...

Picture
Daily Pool Parties!!  Since we're visiting Camp Ramblewood in the spring this time around, the pool will be open! BADASS has 2 seasons of successful Off the Deep End pool parties in DC under their belts, so we can't wait to see what madness is in store when all these headliners hit the pool deck! There will be pool parties on Friday and Saturday, from 2p-11p daily.
Dining Hall: Brand new to the table this year for Badass' festivals is use of the Dining Hall!  For an additional $75 add-on, you can get a meal plan that covers 5 meals; Friday dinner; Saturday breakfast lunch and dinner; and Sunday breakfast. Vegetarian and gluten-free options will also be available.

NYCR Thunderdome: Back again this year in the main camp area will be the NYCRavers and their Thunderdome, featuring great local talent from NYC. Expect to hear drum & bass, hardstyle, oldskool hardcore, and house music.

Picture

The Atmosphere: Nightmare and Big Dub festivals always feature incredible art installations and decorations throughout the venue, and Dreamscape will be no different. Featuring the talents of Raina of the Haunted Garden and NephilNine, BADASS also always takes applications from patrons who are interested in helping to create the environment, assuring a varied and incredible buffet for the senses. Submit an application to participate HERE.
The Music: We have yet to be let down by a lineup from BADASS; they do a wonderful job of creating a very genre-diverse and energetic lineup that always follows their theme nicely. This time around, we're exceptionally excited for the Pool Parties with TWRK, Party Favor, Buku, Space Jesus, Michal Menert, Manic Focus, and our good friends The Wetsteppers. The City of Dreams stage is completely stacked with artists like UZ, Lucky Date, Must Die!, Meaux Green, Metrik and Lazy Rich. To whet your appetite for whats coming for you this spring, be sure to follow along with our Dreamscape Party Prep Playlist on the FRL Soundcloud:

Everything you've Ever Forgotten

This is it. The most wonderful time of the year! Its finally time to pack up your car and head out for a weekend full of music and community, camped out under the stars with thousands of your new best friends. Arguably one of the most life-changing experiences most music enthusiasts will experience, a full-scale multi-day camping festival is no small victory. It takes a fair bit of preparation, planning, and eventually experience to pull off a sublimely perfect weekend. 
Compiled below is a short list of basic and pro-hack items that we suggest you remember to take along to make your weekend comfortable, safe, and AMAZING!  Don't worry about taking notes; we've included a google document at the end for your pleasure. Happy festivalling!

DO NOT FORGET:

Picture
Picture
o   Government-issued PHOTO ID - Drivers License, ID card, or Passport are pretty much your only solid options. Make sure you have it!! Your library, school ID, and/or credit card will NOT work.

o   Your ticket/wristband! If you had it mailed to you, be sure that you have it with you and that you have completed any registrations or fund-loading you may need to do ahead of time- the cell service is terrible at festivals. If your tickets are will-call, make sure to arrive while will-call is OPEN, or you will have to camp out in line or the parking lot until it is.

o   CASH – Realistically, bring around $200 in cash with you for incidentals, merchandise purchases, food/drink, Ice, etc. ATMs cost a TON to use in the venues, are unreliable, and frequently run out of cash. While some festivals are going ‘cash-less’, our experience has still been that we needed cash on hand anyway for one reason or another. Also, find a safe place to store your cash, credit cards, and ID. You don't want to be stranded after a crazy weekend!

Campsite:

Picture
o   Tent – We use an Instant-up cabin-style tent for ease and speed of set up no matter what time we arrive. There are pros and cons to each tent design– just make sure its WATERPROOF and has a rainfly! We use Coleman Instant Tents; they go up in under 2 mins, and STAY UP - Check it out!
PRO TIP: You’ll need a mallet or something similar to hammer in your stakes.

o   EasyUp/Canopy – Shelter from the elements (apart from your hot tent) makes killing time during the day much more comfortable! The nicer quality canopy you buy, the better – cheap ones tend to function as sails in storms or wind. We use Coleman's 12 x 12' instant canopy, and the associated sunwalls for privacy in our camp's common areas.
Picture
Picture
o   Folding Tables  – Keeping your food or belongings off the wet earth makes a big difference in comfort and organization, but are a luxury for if you have extra hands to carry it or if you're car camping.
o   Bungee Cords, Zip ties, and/or Rope - will make setting your camp up much easier, and more secure! Adequately secured tarps and canopy walls keep your camp dry and from blowing away in the inevitable rain. If you use zipties, bring scissors!

Picture
o   Tarps – function as ground cover to keep the bottom of your tent from getting damaged and wet, can seal the sides of your EasyUp for rain/sun coverage in your common area, and will  work as a rainfly in a pinch! BRING A BUNCH!
o   Chairs –Killing time in the campsite during the day will be much more comfortable with somewhere to sit! By 10am your tent will be an oven, so find a way to get comfy outside; chairs, hammocks, and towels on the ground will do!
Picture
Picture
Light Sources – At least 2 – One for your campsite (LED/Battery Lantern) and a smaller handheld light for trips to the bathroom at night, and those sketchy portapotties are dark! The campsites are dark at night, and often are situated in large farming fields; this means HOLES and varied terrain. We use this one because it has interchangeable power supply; both batteries and rechargeable. 
Bed - (air mattress, cot, bedroll etc.) and any associated bedding. It gets COLD at night! If you bring an air mattress, keep in mind that you will need a battery or hand pump – there will be no electricity! If you are car camping, you can use a car pump. We use and recommend a double high air mattress like this one. When you're dancing all day at a festival, its important to be able to recharge at night in a comfortable bed!
Picture
Picture
Battery Packs – Whether there will be access to charging stations or random unguarded outlets or not is always a toss-up, so the purchase of a rechargeable battery pack or solar converter can really help keep your devices connected all weekend long. For a weekend trip, packs over 10,000 mAh are best and provide 3+ charges for most smartphones, but you’ll still have to curb your instagramming.
o   Ziploc Bags – Whether you need to keep your phone dry in the rain or you want to pack up your soaked socks, a few ziplocs will come in handy if you need to seal anything!
Picture
Picture
o   Disposable Dishes – If you are car camping and able to cook, disposable plates, cups and flatware will make things much easier, but aren’t exceptionally green. Make sure it all gets thrown in your trash bag and doesn’t litter your site!

Paper Towels/All-Purpose Wipes – They’re light and will dry off your stuff, and something WILL spill - bring a roll. All purpose wipes serve many purposes; cleaning off your general campsite items, wiping down tables and chairs, and most essentially- cleaning toilet seats on Sunday!
Picture
Picture
Trash Bags – Most festivals are now handing out trash and recycling bags at entry, and have centralized trash pick up locations within camp. It's your responsibility to make sure that you leave no trace, so be sure to set up a trash bag in your camp and periodically make sure to clean up your site. Beyond being green, it will keep bugs away too!
Toilet Paper/Wipes – Always bring extra toilet paper and wipes with you to a camping festival. While festivals are doing a much better job of keeping portopotties clean, there are frequent TP shortages, and not everyone is as clean in there as you might be. Some wet wipes to clean any surfaces and some extra TP can go a long way for your comfort, and will help you make friends if you bring extra to share!
Picture
Picture
o   Tent Lock – A tent lock can help you keep your piece of mind when you leave the campsite for the day. There are many types; some allow you to set your own code, some use a key, but most will help deter would-be thefts of the opportunistic type.

Food/Drink:

o   WATER – Water is available and free at most camping festivals, but it's sometimes just a field tap or a hose from a big vat of water, and depending on the festival and weather, lines can get LONG. If you are particular about water taste or quality, be sure to BRING SOME. Actually; BRING SOME ANYWAY, and DRINK IT. 90% of hospital transports are from DEHYDRATION, and that WILL ruin your weekend.

Picture
Picture
Camelback/Waterbottle – It’s expensive and a pain to pay for individual water bottles! Bring a reusable bottle or reuse your purchased bottle at the free water stations, and carry some with you into the hot crowd! Camelbaks and other hydration packs are an excellent way to keep your water, valuables, and personal items safely attached to you, but out of the way! Most venues are now allowing camelbacks in as long as they are empty, and filled inside the venue. We choose to only support festivals who allow these life-saving hydration packs.
o   Non-Perishable Food items: Individually wrapped – Think protein-heavy with decent nutrition! Jerky, Granola Bars, Fruit! The food at these festivals is starting to get healthier, but generally cost between $12-20 per meal once you’ve gotten food and a drink, and the lines are always appalling. Not to mention, they are usually going for quick, not easy on your GI system – so think about that. Individually wrapped food will keep longer, too. There are bugs and damp conditions everywhere, don’t let them ruin your whole food supply!
Picture
Picture
Cooler - it gets hot during the day! If you have any notions about keeping anything perishable in your site, or cooling down your drinks, you’ll need a real cooler with ICE. This means hauling it in and bringing some ice, and then keeping it iced all weekend by purchasing ice at a vendor. Bags typically run $5-$12 each, the lines can get LONG, and ice can run out; so go early daily to purchase!
o   Gatorade/Electrolytes – If you have room, Gatorade or an electrolyte powder or drink mix will help you replenish the natural salts you lose when you sweat all day in the sun, helping keep your natural sodium levels even.
Picture

Other Items To Consider:

Picture
o   Speakers – battery powered to use in the campsite for music
o   Extra batteries – You may run out for your lantern/air pump etc.
o   Campsite decorations – decorating your campsite makes it more homey, and it helps you identify it later on when you’re coming home in PartyTime mode from a different direction, so get creative - don't be the weirdo crashing through someone else's campsite!
o   Solar Charger – If you really love this and you begin going to a lot of festivals, investing in a solar charger will ease the strain on carrying battery packs and ease your mind while you laze around in the sun charging your phone playing tunes all day. Plus you’ll look like a pro.
o   Eye mask/Ear Plugs - If you’re a light sleeper at all, you’ll need these. The Sun is up around 8am and if you try go to bed early, Murphy's Law says your neighbors will play music all night. Don't get frustrated, get smart!
Picture

Clothing Suggestions:

Picture
o   Hot summer day outfits - Think comfortable for walking an average of 2-3 miles per day in. 
Picture
o   Alternate RAIN clothes - a Poncho and footwear that will STAY ON in deep mud at the very least.
o   Shoes - Comfy Sneakers for nice weather, flipflops or tevas for quick runs in camp.
Picture
o   Undergarmets – Twice what you think you may need. Don’t get stuck without clean drawers or wearing stinky socks!
o   Towel – if it rains, you need it. If you shower- you need it. If you want to sunbathe, you need it. 
Picture
o   Cool, damp summer night clothes - LAYERS are key; one thermal and sweatshirt/pants are pretty crucial.
Picture
o   Toiletries – Travel Sized and minimal; be sure to pack deodorant, toothbrush/paste, hair brush, hair ties, condoms, and any shower supplies or hair products. Ladies bring an extra tampon or two in case you or a friend needs one, and may we suggest everyone consider personal wipes for staying fresh downstairs.
o   Sunglasses - Ones you could stand to lose!

o   Bandanna – It gets DUSTY and you don’t want to get Festival Lung; it's real.

Picture
Picture
o   Baby Wipes – There are no less than about 600 solid uses for these in the camp, but the most useful is to pull a quick and dirty shower. When showers aren’t available but it’s hot and sweaty, baby wipes help keep you fresh and clean all over, and you can do it right in your tent! We buy the Costco sized containers and use them up fast.
o   Planning on Showering? - Bring a few toiletries, but be advised – the showers cost money and lines are long. Outlets for hair tools are NOT likely, but have been seen at ID&T camping festivals in the paid showers. 

PROTIP: Get a Solar heated campsite shower for $13 at Walmart, hang it on your car or EZUp, and amaze your neighbors with your genius AND your hygiene.
Picture
Picture
o   Partaking in Party Favors? – GET A TEST KIT; DanceSafe and/or BunkPolice have a presence at nearly every festival, and exist to educate and assist without judgement. They sell test kits online (you must buy online- legal issues prevent sale of the kits at the festival) that can quickly and easily shed some light on almost any kind of substance you may come across. If you plan to party, plan to do so responsibly!

<![CDATA[Big Dub Music Festival celebrates it's 5th year!]]>Wed, 23 Jul 2014 15:40:27 GMThttp://www.fvckreallife.com/upcoming/big-dub-music-festival-celebrates-its-5th-year
  Sadly (or fortunately, depending on how you look at the aftermath) we were unable to attend the inaugural Hudson Project this year. As a result, our camping music festival thirst has now become very real. Thankfully, Badass Raves’ is hosting it's 5th Annual Big Dub Festival at the end of the month and it just may be the event we need to satisfy our craving. We’ve kept a close eye on Badass Raves ever since we reviewed Nightmare Festival last October, but this grassroots production company has been throwing themed parties for an active following of dance music maniacs for over 6 years. Like most of the mega music festivals we review, Big Dub features camping, multiple stages, hammock havens, a nightly silent disco, and fireworks. However, unlike oversold mainstream productions, Big Dub is known for fostering a balance between communal gathering and monster party. The 4 day camping tickets have already sold out, leaving very few $115 3 day tickets remaining for those who want to catch this eclectic lineup in an intimate festival setting.
 From start to finish, Badass does it right with Big Dub by adding features like merchandise happy hours, swim parties, pro photo shoots, movie popcorn cuddle puddles, body painting, hooping, yoga, and every cocktail hour imaginable. And in true ‘Fuck Real Life’ fashion, they even host all manner of interesting and educational seminars, DIY’s and even Live Action Role Playing and Magic the Gathering tournaments. One of our biggest gripes with Mysteryland this year was the lack of attention towards the camping experience, which is why we were thrilled to see there will be a total of 25 Theme Camps to choose from onsite, all customized by passionate patrons and open to all Big Dub attendees. 
 Badass has created something truly unique by investing so much energy into the experience of their events. It’s no surprise that Big Dub has been steadily growing annually with now more than 3,000 attendees. For many of us, community is a large part of what makes EDM events so special; and from what we've seen so far, they draw one of the best crowds possible. We’re honored to have the opportunity to cover Big Dub this year and we'll have our merch set up with the other vendors so be sure to stop by; you may just end up in our recap!

<![CDATA[Artist spotlight:Etherwood]]>Thu, 20 Mar 2014 03:35:18 GMThttp://www.fvckreallife.com/upcoming/artist-spotlightetherwoodPicture
Recently found this guy while listening to the DI.FM liquid dnb channel and have been absolutely smitten by his music since.  With stunning vocals, profound melodies, and solid progression Etherwood is on the brink of becoming one of the greatest drum and bass artists on the planet.  His music is unique, his music videos are superb, and his mixing is pretty damn good. 


Drawing inspiration from the likes of Aphrodite, Photek, Logistics, Roni Size, and DJ Hype…Etherwood has spent the previous 2 years learning how to produce music focusing on reverb-heavy guitar and delayed piano rolls to create his own signature sound.  Etherwood is so talented that in the short amount of time that he’s been working his way into the dance music world he has received support from the likes of Radio One, Capital FM, XFM, Triple J, and Rinse FM.

His first release ‘Give it Up’ was a massive turning point in his career fetching over 150,000 views on YouTube and 20,000 plays on Soundcloud.  Released under Hospital Records it was even featured on liquid dnb mega-channel Liquicity.  Now signed under Med School Music Etherwood will surely be a household name with his future releases and mixes.  Keep an eye out for him :)

   On Jan. 14th, the Workaholics facebook uploaded a new photo featuring our favorite trio decked out in full rave gear (left) with the caption, "Ready to Rave?". After another photo (feat above) was posted yesterday showing Blake at what looks to be quite a party, we feel safe saying that we're SUPER excited to see where this is going. The photos are promoting the hysterical show's upcoming fourth season, which begins airing on Jan 22nd on Comedy Central. The official website has two clips available for preview, both skewering stereotypical rave culture. The first clip shows an appropriately awkward and misguided attempt to buy 'Molly' from their drug dealer Carl, the other is a montage of clips from the new season, including the rave episode. Check them out below, and be sure to catch Workaholics if you haven't already on Comedy Central, we haven't been able to stop watching yet!
