@Spliffbreaks asked to interview me @basscoastproj. I said yes, as long as we did the interview in the mobile sauna. At first they were a little worried about the camera getting salty and steamy. In the end they risked their expensive recording equipment and went for it. Watch the interview here:
"While during our visit to the 2015 Bass Coast Music Festival, we had the chance to interview Darren Woodhead or simply known to many as, Woodhead. Being the veteran in the House/Techno and Festival scenes in Vancouver and surrounding areas of British Columbia that he is, his insight on not only music but also the festival culture on a whole is in depth and extensive. Spliff Breaks was lucky enough to soak up some of those experiences with him during our time spent at this amazing festival.
Woodhead and John Zee discuss mobile saunas and The Sauna Sessions, the Vancouver Electronic music scene/community, Woodhead's early days and the Soundwave Festival (Tofino, B.C.), differences from earlier party days to more current music festivals, what excites Woodhead about the current rave scene and much more.."

Bass Coast Festival 2014 was a complete success. Watch for 2015 dates, coming soon.
Bass Coast Festival is a 4-day summer outdoor music festival, located in Merrit, British Columbia.
Bass Coast’s primary vision is to contribute to the West Coast arts community, by building a festival with international recognition. We are very proud to be west-coaster’s. The name Bass Coast has the initials of the land and environment we are deeply connected to. The love of electronic music, community, and creative innovation in all forms, is at the core of the experience we are passionate about providing.
The rich culture that surrounds our music is a creative community of artists, scientists, designers, yogi’s, environmentalists, freedom fighters, business minds, intellectuals, party-goers, poets and dancers. We believe the Bass Coast community is a supportive environment where participants are inspired to explore deeper layers of themselves.
Bass coast has no corporate sponsorship.
The best weekend of the summer is upon us! Time to live in a tent for a few days beside the river to soak up some bass music. check: http://www.basscoastproject.com/. There are still tickets left!
Catch my set at 1:30am Friday night on the Basscoast Stage. .
