Coming off of an amazing two weeks running their stage at Coachella, The Do LaB is excited to announce that electro-pop duo Purity Ring has been added to the already loaded Lightning in a Bottle lineup, joining Nicolas Jaar, Rusko, Tycho, Paper Diamond, Emancipator, PANTyRAiD, Lee Burridge, GRiZ and more.

 

The country’s premier boutique music and arts festival also includes the sounds of Miguel Migs, Eskmo, Tim Green, Cari Lekebusch, Blockhead, and Kastle. In addition to the world class talent above, other notables include house legend François K, the emerging indie melodies of Blackbird Blackbird, Los Angeles Icon Jason Bentley,  the foot-stomping anthems of Herbert Bail Orchestra, plus over 100 more industry leading acts and of course the performance-art enhanced vision of The Lucent Dossier Experience.

This year, with new dates from July 11 to July 15, 2013, and a new location at Lake Skinner County Park in Temecula, CA, The Do LaB continues on their journey to bring to life one of the most unique festivals in the world.

Over the past eight years, The Do LaB has worked tirelessly to produce the most innovative festival on the international circuit, transcending any typical perception of the modern gathering. By fusing the energy of the bass music sound with the introspective qualities of installation art, performance art, spiritual living workshops, and an overriding sense of conscious sustainability, Lightning in a Bottle has risen to unparalleled heights.

In the words of one of the The Do LaB’s event creation visionaries, “Our goal with the music is to create a positive and uplifting experience, with a good balance of beautiful melodic music and good old party music. After 4 months of in depth research and a lot of listening we tried to cover as many genres as possible that we feel fit the vibe that we’re trying to create with Lightning in a Bottle.”- Jesse Flemming, Co-Founder/Curator, The Do LaB.

 

Much of Lightning in a Bottle’s intimate singularity is expressed through The Lucent Temple of Consciousness, an amazing sanctuary for all participants to enrich the soul and inspire the spirit. The 2013 schedule inside the Lucent Temple, built out of recycled and found objects, will include over 300 different experiences in yoga, workshops, speakers and exotic world music.
