I too have noticed this. I attribute it to (lower end) sound companies whose FOH mix engineers do primarily hiphop, EDM, and rap gigs.
I posted a note about this to an area blues society after noting the kick drum at a blues festival was 20-25 dB louder than everything else in the mix; not something that is appropriate for the Blues genre. This was measured using a cell phone spectrum analyzer app for Android (from Kewlsoft). This also frequently causes a “one-note bass” issue, where either the room or the sub cabinets ring at a resonant frequency. Neither the kick nor the bass instruments sounded like actual instruments, but more like a triggered 30 Hz burst.
To my great surprise and delight, they took my comments to heart, and this years fest was immensely improved in this regard.
I wish there was a more universal solution… My personal feeling is there is no reason that each kick drum hit should cause my liver to jump half an inch.
