Wub N Dub Festival Returns to North Carolina for Second Year with Bigger Production, Late-Night Sets

On April 21-23, Wub N Dub Arts & Music Festival returns to Willard, North Carolina for three days of music, art, and camping. This year, a third stage, dubbed “Release” is in the mix with a 360-degree dome experience.

The festival is on a campsite in Willard on N River Bluff Drive, north of Wilmington.

While bass music lovers are looking forward to endless wubs, the festival promises a plethora of genres including house, techno, and riddim. The lineup sports heavy hitters Bommer, Bawldy, and Emorfik. Experimental bass enthusiasts NotLö, SuperAve., and Ternion Sound are also headlining. 

Wubadelic Promotions brought Wub N Dub Festival to life in 2022, and now NC-based promotions group Kouch Kollective has officially bought into the celebration of wubs.

Kouch Kollective promises the new partnership will bring an enhanced experience for year two with bigger talent, more art, vendors, and workshops. “Once all three stages close, the 360 stage will open back up until sunrise with a special late-night lineup full of Kouch Family,” Kouch Kollective co-owner Zack Poe told MP3 MAG. 

Kouch Kollective is also expanding its reach in the East Coast bass community with other partnerships. It recently announced it’s teaming up with Sacred Hive and Wobble Factory by buying into Sound Haven music festival. Sound Haven returns with an exciting bass lineup on July 20-23 to Jaceland in Whitwell, Tennessee.

Plus, Kouch co-owner Spears Moose hinted that a Kouch Kollective festival in the Carolinas is in the works for some time in 2024. Find more info & tickets for Wub N Dub Festival here:
