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.

POP Montreal Announces More Of It’s 2012 Lineup

Here are some more flashy names to add to the list of super high calibre artists playing the festival. We are very happy to announce that the special David Byrne & St. Vincent tour will be coming to Montreal September 21st, as part of the festival. The artists will be releasing their first collaborative album on September 11 entitled Love This Giant, to be released worldwide by 4AD under exclusive license from Byrne’s label Todo Mundo. Recorded over two years, this new effort has been described as a collaboration in the “truest sense of the word”, with Byrne and St. Vincent (aka Annie Clark) co-writing ten of the album’s twelve tracks, and each artist penning one song individually. A promotional copy of the album opener “Who” is available online for download.

Grimes and Purity Ring, both break out sensations of POP 2011, are back, woohoo! Local label Fixture Records will bring us a great line-up of underground gems highlighted by Chevalier Avant Garde. Printemps d’érable heroes Avec pas d’casque will play an intimate show on the breathtaking Ubisoft Rooftop. The dreamy pop perfection of Captured Tracks’ artist Wild Nothing play at Il Motore, and local hip hop pranksters Alaclair Ensemble will headline at Sala Rossa. We also welcome back Canadian musical trailblazer Ian Blurton as he reforms the seminal genre defying rock band Change of Heart. Finally, the incomparable, unforgettable and incredibly sexy Arthur H. will also join the party. There’s still lots more to come, more tickets, more passes, more art, more music, more film, more fun, more basketball. Check ça les amis.
