The 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.
January 25, 2016
Musical headliners topping Lightning in a Bottle (LIB) ’s 2016 bill include Australia’s electronic neo-soul singer-songwriter Chet Faker; Canadian producer and savant songstress Grimes; prolific producer behind London-based band The xx Jamie xx; Modeselektor and Apparat join forces to become Berlin’s electronica trio Moderat; English post-rock electronic artist Four Tet Four Tet; a return for the amazing Norwegian producer and remix-master Cashmere Cat; the sultry horn play of Boulder, Colorado’s Big Gigantic.
Lightning in a Bottle (LIB) 2016 will showcase a roster of global musical acts, artists, and installations, totaling over 300 in number. In a conscious effort to bring balance to a lineup that already crosses the musical spectrum from progressive house to future bass, Do LaB has also booked more female artists than ever before including 2016 performances from Alina Baraz, Marian Hill, Hundred Waters, Mija, Rubblebucket, TOKiMONSTA, Magda, Ibeyi, and Francesca Lombardo.
Joining the headliners on the Lightning Stage are installation artist and live musical act William Close and the Earth Harp Collective and more. More additional lineup releases will be announced 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.
