Denver is often referred to as the bass capital of the United States, and with good reason. The Black Box, established in 2016, is a cornerstone of this Denver community and sound system culture alike.
Owned and operated by Sub.mission lead Nicole Cacciavillano and her talented team, The Black Box has established itself as a premier tour stop for dubstep legends while also holding space for new and upcoming artists. This weekend, we join to celebrate five incredible years with a lineup that exemplifies what the team is about. Purchase tickets here!
Welcome to The Black Box
While the Black Box is celebrating five years, the team that makes it happen has been hard at work for nearly a decade. Bass music gravitated to the Mile High City through Sub.mission with a simple but important message. Move people through sound, not hype. The music speaks for itself through a sound system completely unique to the venue.
Opening night featured dubstep pioneer Mala of Digital Mystikz, Moresounds, and a RECON takeover much like the ones we still see on the calendar today. This gathering of passionate fans and dedicated staff set the tone for years to come.
Fast forward to 2021, The Black Box and Sub.mission dug deep to stay alive in one of the most difficult times the music industry has ever faced. The team made grand efforts to stay open and provide experiences for the Denver community that won’t soon be forgotten. Their seated table events showed a proof in concept for many others to follow.
Better Than Ever
