Lightning In A Bottle 2020 Lineup: James Blake, KAYTRANADA, Doja Cat, Bob Moses, Four Tet, GRiZ & More
Today, Jan. 14, Do LaB announced the Phase 1 lineup for their flagship California music festival, Lightning in a Bottle, featuring James Blake, Jon Hopkins, KAYTRANADA, Bob Moses, GRiZ, Four Tet, Sylvan Esso, Nina Kraviz, Stephan Bodzin and many more of your favorite artists across the electronic spectrum.
The beloved long-running festival will return for the second year at its new, sunny lakeside Central California home at Buena Vista Lake, during Memorial Day Weekend, May 20–25. Purity Ring, Eli & Fur, Doja Cat, Empress Of, DJ Shadow, Justin Jay, DJ Holographic and Justin Martin are also slated to bring the vibes to the three main stages of the eclectic event.
The sunset-hued lineup poster also reveals details for special extended opening sets from San Diego's Desert Hearts squad and Joe Kay of Los Angeles' Soulection, taking place on Thurs., May 21 for early arrival campers. The colorful poster also notates the event's three main stages—the big-name, all-genre Lightning, the bass-heavy hitter haven aptly called Thunder and the fan-favorite underground house and techno Woogie.
Current 2020 GRAMMY nominee Blake, who got his start as a DJ/producer making glitchy, vocal-less dance tracks, will be throwing down a special headline Thunder set. Experimental Brazilian trip-hop producer Amon Tobin will also headline the same stage, with his Two Fingers project.
Past GRAMMY nominee Hopkins, known for his cinematic soundscapes, along with electro-R&B king KAYTRANADA and jazzy house experimenter/proud Ariana Grande fan Four Tet will all be getting the Lightning stage lit. Dreamy Aussie dance trio Crooked Colours, Wajatta—comedian Reggie Watts and house stalwart John Tejada—along with Portland-based ambient DJ/producer Emancipator.
