For the past 15 years, Lightning in a Bottle has been a staple of Southern California’s dynamic festival scene. Between its enlightening and eclectic line-ups, beloved rituals and encouraged debaucherous behavior, the three-day event has rightfully stood its ground as one of North America’s highlighted “transformational” festivals.
Touching down at its new home of Buena Vista Lake in Central California, LIB's 2019 line-up boasts an eclectic selection of house, techno, bass and other unique musical musings.
Providing sounds for the festival's flagship Lightning stage are acts such as Disclosure, Santigold, Gramatik, Toro y Moi, Big Gigantic and Flying Lotus who will present his epic 3D musical experience.
On the house and techno front, artists like Recondite, DJ Koze, Lutrell, Shiba San, Damian Lazarus and more will soundtrack Lightning in a Bottle's beloved Woogie stage. Bass heads can expect performances from G Jones, CloZee, Alix Perez and EPROM’s Shades project, OPIUO, Jo Kay and other low-end specialists at the festival's Thunder Stage.
While sad to see leave its original location behind, LIB's new home has a lush grassy topography, thick shade trees and swim-friendly shoreline that is bound to get its loyal fanbase onboard in no time.
