In case you need any help getting excited about this year's Coachella festival, which expanded to two weekends, and kicks off tomorrow, we've got a raucous recap of The Do LaB's stage setup from last year to get you in the mood. If this doesn't get you pumped about the cutting edge lineup of electronic acts slated for this weekend, including Michal Menert, Kaminanda, Andreilien, Robotic Pirate Monkey, Manic Focus, and so many more, you should get yourself to a doctor.
In addition to the wild lineup, there's also crazy performance art and live acrobatics as well as some of the most intense sculptural art pieces you've ever seen. The Do LaB stage at Coachella is legendary for a reason.
And of course last week the music lineup for the 8th annual Lightning in a Bottle International Music and Arts Festival, with new dates from July 11 to July 15, 2013, and a new location at Lake Skinner County Park in Temecula, CA, was announced, with electronic pioneers Nicolas Jaar, Rusko, Tycho, Paper Diamond, Emancipator, PANTyRAiD, Lee Burridge, andGRiZheadlining. 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, plus over 100 more industry leading acts and of course the performance-art enhanced vision of The Lucent Dossier Experience and foot-stomping anthems of the Herbert Bail Orchestra.
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.
