When BassNight CEO Loren Hardy first started throwing his BassNight events at a little burger joint in Longwood, he had one goal: to bring electrifying bass and "festival vibes" to Orlando nightlife on a weekly basis.

But that was two years ago, and BassNight has gotten a few facelifts since. Henao Contemporary Center, BassNight's newest home, provides the perfect stage for 5,000 watts of bass, ethereal live artists, vendors and food trucks.

With O.G. dubstep producer Emalkay and the more experimental Mickman, who Hardy calls "the future," holding down the headlining spots, they're only proving that there's no better time than the present. What better way to celebrate two years of hard-hitting bass than with even more bass?

BassNight's "2 Years of Bass" party happens on Friday, March 22, at 9 p.m. at the Henao Contemporary Center. Tickets are $20.
