At the Lightning Stage, feel the melodic vibes of Chet Faker, get funky with Big Gigantic, expand your mind with the IDM beats of Moderat (an Apparat and Modeselektor collaboration), groove to sound of the solo electronic project of band mate Jamie xx of The xx, and experience the stunning vocals of downtempo electronica artist Alina Baraz. 

The Thunder Stage hits hard with the ‘sweet drip drop’ sounds of duo Dimond Saints, the infusion of R&B/ futuristic hip- hop/ and electronic beats of Cashmere Cat, and a dynamic, booty rattling set from Mija. Deeply immerse yourself in the funky, glitch hop vibrations of Haywyre, the melodic music of Autograf, and tribal, bass beats from Clozee. 

Head over to the Woogie Stage and chill out with Four Tet, hear the sexy sounds of Guy Gerber, drift into dreamland with Lee Buuridge, get down with your favorite German sausages andhim, and go deep with Lane 8… 


Not only does Lightning In A Bottle host a stunning lineup, the festival creates opportunity for spiritual and community growth for all attendees. 

The intention of The Village is “to learn by doing, to be engaged with how to actually create and sustain a Village… an interactive, intergenerational, education-based environment focused on earth based wisdom traditions and the skills necessary to be a sustainable, thriving, interdependent community.”
