Lightning in a Bottle is celebrating its 20th anniversary this Memorial Day Weekend and bringing in an incredible lineup of artists to join the party.
The phase one lineup dropped back in January with an eclectic array of artists with legends like ZHU, The Glitch Mob, and Diplo alongside up-and-coming artists such as TSHA and Tobe Nwigwe. While the Lightning, Thunder, and Woogie stages never disappoint, the true magic of the Lightning in a Bottle lineup is found in the smaller stages. Now, those stages have been revealed.
The Grand Artique is Lightning in a Bottle’s longstanding venue for the weird, wonderful experiences you won’t find anywhere else. This summer you can catch Steers & Queers, Rainbow Girls, and Fresh Veggies Micro Brass amongst others, and if you haven’t heard of any of these artists, that’s kind of the point. Explore, get weird, and discover something new.
Have you always dreamt of dancing to house and techno while surrounded by tires, metal, and other junk? Welcome to The Junkyard, one of our favorite stages at LiB. Known for its epic performances and immaculate sunsets, this is the place to discover your next favorite artist.
By day The Compass is a learning hub, where you can listen to talks from experts in self-care, psychedelics, sustainability, and more. At night, this magical space transforms into a late-night music den, with chill beats and incredible vibes. This year we’ll see special performances from LSDream and The Polish Ambassador among many other talented artists.
Bass heads rejoice, The Stacks is back for another year, and the lineup is hot. Heavy hitters like Antennae and Stylust join an absolutely stacked roster of artists that will throw down the noise from daytime into the late hours of the night. The Stacks also throws the best surprise sets at the festival, so if you see a blank space in the schedule, you better show up ready.
Lightning in a Bottle takes place from May 24-29 and Buena Vista Lake, CA. Tickets are available now.
