Los Angeles-based festival producers Do LaB officially announced that they’ll be ending their longstanding partnership with the bass-bumping house label, Dirtybird Records.

Since the hatching of the Dirtybird Campout back in 2015, both the event and the organizations have each grown considerably. With three years of sold-out events, star-studded lineups, and over the top summer camp inspired programming under their belt, Dirtybird has now chosen to carry out the Campout independently from the Do LaB.

“Creating the wild and one-of-a-kind Dirtybird Campout has been one of the most rewarding experiences we’ve had the privilege to take part in and we’re very proud of the unique event we were able to build together,” Do LaB’s Co-Founder and President, Jesse Flemming said of the two’s partnership. “The Dirtybird community welcomed us with open arms, so hosting their amazing fans for the last 3 years has been very special.”

Fans of the Do LaB’s production can continue to take part in the team’s creative conceptualization at their flagship festival, Lightning In A Bottle, and Coachella.

Lightning in a Bottle drops off diverse 2018 lineup

Bradley, California’s uniquely immersive festival, Lightning in a Bottle, has revealed the first phase of its 2018 musical line-up, set to take place May 23–28.

In an increasingly monotonous festival market, LiB defines itself in defying the norm. The festival’s forward-thinking curation has presently landed a diverse array of acts from Anderson.Paak & The Free Nationals, to Zhu, GriZ, Fever Ray, The Glitch Mob, Sofi Tukker, TOKiMONSTA, Modeselektor (DJ Set), Emancipator, Nicole Moudaber, The Black Madonna, and more.

Lightning in a Bottle’s strive for diversity in its programming can be best summed in music director and co-founder Jesse Flemming’s words:

“We’re definitely not trying to play the same game we are seeing with all the massive festivals these days when we book our music programming. Forget the big names you can see at 10 other festivals this year. For us the goal is to craft a musical playlist that will perfectly guide people along the experience we’re trying to create. We book each stage to be its own separate journey on any given day and we try to diversify it as much as possible so when you’re wandering around during the weekend you can always find something just right for you. This has been our goal since day one and it continues to shape how we book today.”

More information and tickets to Lightning in a Bottle, which go on-sale January 18 at 10 am PST, are available here.
