Shaquille O'Neal and DIESEL

Shaquille O’Neal set to host first ever major scale festival with Shaq’s Bass All Stars Festival this weekend

Shaquille O’Neal is about to pass another milestone in his DJing career as his first major scale festival will take place this weekend with an impressive lineup of fellow bass music artists.

Over the past five years, Shaquille O’Neal has quickly risen through the ranks of bass music as a spectator to now a can’t-miss festival performer. Under the artist name, Diesel, he has toured the world and played on some of the biggest stages, delivering a dubstep experience unlike anything else in the industry. As one of the most passionate and hard-working musicians in the industry, O’Neal has become respected as a true artist and entertainer amongst his peers and fans. He continues to raise the bar as he achieves milestone after milestone, but his next endeavor is his biggest one yet.

O’Neal will host his inaugural bass music festival, Shaq’s Bass All Stars Festival, this Saturday at the Panther Island Pavillion in Fort Worth, TX. With 16 of bass music’s most prestigious acts spread out over two stages, this one-day event will, without a doubt, provide one of the most memorable experiences of any festival in 2023. For any fans of trap, dubstep, drum and bass, melodic bass, etc., this lineup is a match made in Heaven. O’Neil did not mess around when curating this bill. Partnering with esteemed promoter, Disco Donnie Presents, the two put together one of the deepest bass lineups of 2023, and given the price point of entry for Shaq’s Bass All Stars, this is arguably the best deal any festival has had all year.

Those who choose to attend will get the opportunity to see some incredible moments within one of the more intimate festival grounds in Texas. Some of those moments will include Alison Wonderland playing one of her very first shows back after her pregnancy as she closes out the festival, Sullivan Kings one-of-a-kind heavy metal influenced set, Crankdat will be bringing the heat with his trap sounds to the main stage followed by Kai Wachi and rising star LAYZ will get the chance to close out the Trenches stage in what could end up being the best set of the day. O’Neil also understands the importance of B2Bs in the bass community, and he has delivered on that front. There will be four B2Bs during the day with Aalioura B2B Cromatik, Grant Curtis B2B Known, NAZAAR B2B VRG and Ruvlo B2B CELO.

And, of course, it goes without saying that we will see a Diesel performance on the main stage as he plays ahead of Sullivan King. If you have ever attended a Diesel show before, you know the unmatched energy that O’Neal brings once he gets on the stage. Now, for the first time ever, he will be performing under the bright lights of his very own festival in what is arguably one of the biggest shows of his career. But it’s not just the music fans can enjoy, there will also be activities during the festival, such as long shot basketball.

Given the lineup and pricing of the festival, for bass heads, this is an absolute must-attend. Not only is each artist on this lineup an incredible DJ, but just an overall outstanding performer. Do not miss the opportunity to be there to witness O’Neal’s very first festival this Saturday.

Hey everyone! I was blessed to have the opportunity to join the WRY team in 2020. I edit WRY's Youtube content and am also a writer for the website. I have been a massive fan in the EDM scene for over ten years and have been fortunate enough to see some iconic moments in person. Some of my favorite artists are Avicii, Martin Garrix, Krewella, The Chainsmokers, and Illenium. I absolutely love to attend live shows. I try to spend almost every week at some kind of live event or festival (if not in person, at least watching online). And its a guarantee you can always catch me at Ultra Miami every year! Thank you for all the support! Follow me on Twitter to see which show I will be at next! Hopefully I can see you at an event or festival soon! Inquiries can be sent to
