It’s official, Do LaB is almost out of mom and dad’s house and ready to step into young-adulthood at a ripe young age of 20. They are ready to start taking life a little more seriously, if only they knew how. But let’s be real, Do LaB’s always been the fully independent, mischief loving crew of ragtag experience creators their community know and love, always pushing through adversity to deliver events that shaped the modern festival landscape. Now, Lightning in a Bottle, Do LaB’s living and breathing outpost for misfits and music lovers, creatives and experience hunters, is ready to keep goofing off and dreaming of delivering more fun, more outrageous moments and more music than ever before.
LIB’s 2023 lineup will be its largest and most ambitious to date, with its iconic Lightning stage showcasing some of electronic music’s most compelling and in-demand performers. Lightning strikes with headliners like HypnoVision label boss REZZ, playful genre-defying production duo SOFI TUKKER, and Grammy-nominated electronic producer and singer ZHU. Genre-blurring live acts include multi-instrumentalist and vocalist duo Phantogram, heartfelt Canadian composer and recording artist Caribou, the fully imaginative performance of Beats Antique, and singer-songwriter and producer Mindchatter. Flavors of R&B, soul and rap take center stage as well with appearances by Houston’s rising star Tobe Nwigwe, versatile rap and R&B vocalist 070 Shake, Zambia-born vocalist and visual artist Sampa the Great, Ozomatli w/ Chali 2na & Cut Chemist and the full original ensemble performing their first classic album, and electronic R&B live duo Drama.

Now it’s time to come together to set the tone for the next 20 years.
