North America’s premier multi-faceted boutique festival, known for inviting some of live and electronic music’s most sought-after names, is heading back to Bradley, California from May 23rd to 28th.
Known for curating a line-up that defies the monotonous festival booking trends that define mainstream line-ups today, you can look forward to catching Anderson .Paak & The Free Nationals, Zhu, GRiZ, Fever Ray, The Glitch Mob, Sofi Tukker, Tune-Yards, Beats Antique, or Tokimonsta; at the Thunder Stage with Tipper, Modeselektor (DJ Set), Emancipator, Sango, Giraffage, Bleep Bloop, Clozee, and Random Rab, or at the waterfront house and techno haven, the Woogie Stage with Nicole Moudaber, The Black Madonna, MK, Stimming, Rodriguez Jr (live), Yotto, Patrice Baumel, Purple Disco Machine, Oona Dahl, Mira, Viken Arman, and more at this edition of the festival.
If you’re new to the Lighting in a Bottle experience, then you are in for a treat. Otherworldly musical environments, immersive installation art, cause-driven educational programming, and a sprawling lakeside venue are all but little of what attendees can look forward to. Add to this its immersive stage designs and you have a festival that promises a diverse and beautifully unpredictable experience.
In Lightning in a Bottle’s music director and co-founder Jesse Flemming’s own words, “We’re definitely not trying to play the same game we are seeing with all the massive festivals these days when we book our music programming. Forget the big names you can see at 10 other festivals this year. For us, the goal is to craft a musical playlist that will perfectly guide people along the experience we’re trying to create. We book each stage to be its own separate journey on any given day and we try to diversify it as much as possible so when you’re wandering around during the weekend you can always find something just right for you. This has been our goal since day one and it continues to shape how we book today.”
The GA Onsale starts Thursday, Jan. 18th at 10 am PST, so keep your eyes glued here.
