USA Lightning in a Bottle 2024 news

Do LaB have announced the music lineup for North America’s original boutique festival, Lightning in a Bottle, taking place at Buena Vista Lake in Southern California during Memorial Day Weekend (May 22-27). The festival provides a living and breathing outpost for misfits, creatives, and experience hunters to experience an array of top-tier music curation, art installations, immersive environments, and educational programming.

The 2024 edition is all about returning to why the festival started in the first place – having as much fun as possible. The LIB experience continues to be one of many facets and paths. It’s a festival defined as both a transformational wonderland and a wild party where freak flags fly. A place to learn and create, but also reconnect with one’s mischievous inner child, where surprises hide around every corner.

With the 2024 lineup, Lightning in a Bottle continues to build on its legacy of booking a diverse roster of artists across the worlds of dance music and beyond. Headliners for the upcoming edition kick off with three of the UK’s most iconic vocalists, featuring the moody croonings of JAMES BLAKE, London producer and singer LABRINTH and the chart-topping M.I.A.

LIB continues to be a showcase of the who’s who of electronic music exploration. Headlining dance acts include the inimitable SKRILLEX, who took a storied career to new heights after a year that saw a double album release and several marquee festival appearances worldwide. He’ll be joined by formidable rave legend FATBOY SLIM, This Never Happened icon LANE 8, and trip-hop pioneer TIPPER, along with the euphoric low-end frequencies of CLOZEE and rising star ISOXO.

The lineup continues with a rare dubstep set from SKREAM and a sultry Club Set from Canadian duo BOB MOSES. All shades of house and techno each add their own unique energy to the LIB24 bill. HONEY DIJON will champion her originating Chicago house style, while one of experimental electronic’s prodigal sons FLOATING POINTS offers his renowned multi-genre performance.

This forward-thinking ethos is furthered by acts like OVERMONO and TYCHO, while a special back-to-back performance by ANNA and SAMA’ ABDULHADI fills out the harder hitting techno edge of the lineup. Scene favorites NORA EN PURE, JUSTIN MARTIN, MURA MASA and OF THE TREES each bring their own unique and euphoric sounds to the fold.

Those seeking out the more off-kilter and unexpected sounds can look forward to performances from the electro-tropical Colombian band BOMBA ESTÉREO, the indie pop stylings of Cannons, London-based jungle and drum and bass artist NIA ARCHIVES and the rap meets pop blends of QVEEN HERBY. Additional lineup standouts include BARCLAY CRENSHAW, ALUNA, IT’S MURPH, DJ HOLOGRAPHIC, MACHINEDRUM and more.
