Bassnectar, Elephant Revival, Troyboi, and Rüfüs Du Sol Among Headliners for Lightning in a Bottle 2017!
Lightning in a Bottle – Bradley, CA – Now in full bloom in its 12th year, the Golden State’s premiere camping, arts, music and yoga festival, Lightning in a Bottle, returns to central California May 25 – 30, announcing a world-class musical gathering that exudes the playfully aware ethos cultivated by festival founders Do LaB. Fans of LIB can feast their hungry eyes on some of 2017’s most progressive up-and-coming artists alongside an acclaimed curation of powerhouse acts, forming the most dynamic lineup Do LaB has unveiled to date.
With more than 100+ musicians converging at the festival, 2017 is set to be the most eclectic LIB lineup to date. Headliners topping the bill include the international hero to bass embracers everywhere, Bassnectar, who returns with a veritable earthquake in tow to relive the early days his career when LIB was held in Santa Barbara. Next, fresh off a chart-topping album release the famed electronic icon Bonobo is set to serve up his signature brand of lively, transcending grooves. For his first LIB yet, the high-octane UK-based sensation TroyBoi will join the fray and the venerable Rüfüs Du Sol will take a short hiatus from selling out shows across the country to bring a scintillating mix of live and electronic instruments to the mainstage. Plus, the Haitian-born producer Kaytranada will render a drum-heavy set to showcase ear-catching sounds from 99.9%, one of the most celebrated albums of 2016.
Host to several of the most intricately-built and aesthetically stunning stages in the world, and arguably the most compelling display of large scale art outside of Burning Man – Lightning in a Bottle 2017 will showcase an incredible roster of global musical acts, artists, and installations, totalling over 300 in number.
At the illustrious Lightning Stage, house-heads will find something unique in the mesmerizing pop-savvy live electronic show planned by Bob Moses. Rounding out the top slots at the world famous Woogie Stage, legendary techno innovator Richie Hawtin will hand-deliver his seminal sound, and Leon Vynehall will offer his hard edged take on house music.
At the epicenter of the grounds lies the true essence of Lightning in a Bottle where visionary art, healing arts, self-awareness, and education collide to deepen revelers’ connections with one another, a magic that lasts long after the festival has ended. Awaken your spirit at the Lucent Temple of Consciousness, a place dedicated to enriching the mind and body, with visionary talks, world-class yogis, and a plethora of life-changing workshops. A stroll to The Village leads participants to an interactive, intergenerational and education-based environment focused on creating a sustainable, thriving interdependent community that honors the elements, ancestors, and the cycles of the natural world. Immersive environments, such as the famed Grand Artique, Jive Joint, or Amori’s Casino & Burlesque spring to life with collaborative art installations and fun, sultry entertainment. Look for additional lineup releases and announcements for these extraordinary places in the coming months!
Further distinguished from its contemporaries as the most environmentally conscious festival in America, LIB has received A Greener Festival’s Outstanding Award five years running for its healthy food vendors, free water stations, composting and recycling infrastructure, a “Leave No Trace” policy and other green initiatives that continue to grow year after year.
