Event organizers Do LaB have announced the complete music lineup for the 20th anniversary of Lightning in a Bottle, taking place Memorial Day Weekend at Buena Vista Lake in Southern California this May 24-29, 2023. These talent additions offer a first glimpse at the immersive environments of The Stacks, The Grand Artique, The Junkyard, and The Compass in addition to the full day-by-day artist lineups.
Beyond its primary stages – Lightning, Thunder, and Woogie – LIB has long been known for its other creative, other-worldly side stages where attendees can discover new artists.
The Stacks stage reflects the bass music community and is a breeding ground for the genre’s next generation. The stage is thoughtfully curated to offer rising producers the chance to be introduced to LIB fans before their time comes to play the event’s larger stages. This year, The Stacks welcomes rising US talent like Abelation, Kaipora, All:Lo Collective – the brainchild of Park Breezy, Thought Process and TF Marz, as well as Canada’s Mythm, UK riser Rohaan, and many more.
The Grand Artique stage is the Wild West outpost that feels straight off the mining claims of America’s past. This year, Grand Artique will boast headlining performances from artists like Mindchatter (DJ Set) and Moontricks, as well as a host of others like Rainbow Girls, Red Giant Project, Marty O’Reilly, Evan Hatfield, and Hello Yes. The environment’s programming will also feature the off-the-wall Grand Artique Talent Show and The Grand Auction.
The bill at The Junkyard is topped by a rare house set from Grammy-nominated producer TOKiMONSTA, a special tribute set to Pumpkin on Sunday, as well as performances from Marquess Wyatt, Shawna, Ben Annand, and more.
The Compass sees longtime favorite The Polish Ambassador bringing a special Sunday set to the fold, capping off a weekend peppered with music from Lightcode by LSDream, Free Creatures, TOOKER, and Little Wolf to name only a few. The Compass’ Beacon will host a series of downtempo ambient sessions from artists like Jamie Schwabl, Rob Noble, and Ruby Chase.
These stage environs reinforce the event’s multi-decade commitment to bridging the gap between music, art, and interactive experiences which are further complimented by areas like the Jive Joint, Unicorn Palace, The Mixtape, the Rink-a-Dink Roller Rink, Big Leroy’s Karaoke, and more.
Tickets and camping packages are still available for this year’s 20th anniversary of Lightning In a Bottle.
