The annual gathering of forward-thinkers and free spirits at Live Oak Campground in Santa Barbara, CA known as Lucidity returns April 11-13 with its brand new 'Universe' lineup, curated by Memekast, Lux Events, and Music Is Love. The giant roster of progressive acts is split up between the Lucid, Alive, and Audiowaska stages.
The big news is without a doubt the presence of Tipper at the top of the lineup. We're also blessed today with a brand new video from his performance at Infrasound Music Festival (which announced Saturday he'll be returning for two sets in June).
This video was shot mere hours before Tipper flew down to Atlanta for scheduled open heart surgery that restricted his playing schedule to a half a dozen dates last year, including a miraculous surprise performance at Burning Man just three short months after the successful procedure.
This summer, we're being told Tipper's performance schedule will be once again restricted to special events. Unconfirmed rumors put Dave in a dozen markets around the world, with US dates balanced by a return to his UK homeland and potentially a debut in Israel. We’ve also heard whispers of a brand new stage setup making its first appearance at a special Colorado event fans of TheUntz.com hold near and dear.
Other audio shaman joining the glitch-hop godfather on the bill include Love and Light, Kalya Scintilla, Haywyre, Bird of Prey, Birds of Paradise, Sixis, Mumukshu, Digital Rust, and more. The live stage will feature tons of instrumental, folk, singer-songwriter, and hip-hop acts, balancing the electronic bill. Trap, dubstep, and more will be represented on the Audiowaska stage this year.
