Coachella is less than a week away and the excitement is building up for not only headliners Guns n’ Roses, LCD Soundsystem and Calvin Harris but the emerging Do LaB stage, also known as “Big Fish”. The stage lineup was released and features a distinct lineup of emerging artists each weekend. The first weekend showcases talents including Big Wild, Canadian indie-electro pop duo HUMANS, Imagined Herbal Flows, Paper Diamond, Brillz, DJ Ghastly, Dena Amy, Stylust Beats, Wave Racer, Lee Foss, plus MartyParty and Ooah (The Glitch Mob) who reunite once again as PANTYRAID. Weekend 2 will feature Dirtybird favorites Sacha Robotti and Ardalan; other artists include Sam Gellaitry, Brisbane electronic duo Cut Snake, STWO, Autograf, “Rebel Bass”  purveyors and English DJ production duo Stanton Warriors, Candle Weather and Manila Killa Hotel Garuda, drum and bass fusion electronic musician and Do LaB festival staple Kraddy and Nico Luminous, NU, and Bedouin, plus surprise special guests.

In 2015, Rolling Stone named Do LaB’s Big Fish stage as the “Best Dance Floor” at Coachella. Considering the plethora of ways to cool off, the wide variety of elevated platforms and surfaces to maniacally dance upon, creative lighting production, vividly colored awnings complete with aerial performers, and carefree vibes found within the Do LaB’s man-made oasis…it’s not hard to see why.

For those who can’t get enough, Do LaB hosts their own legendary transformational Lightning in a Bottle Festival (LIB) over Memorial Day Weekend and Woogie Weekend from July 8 – 10.  Covering all corners of California, LIB makes its home on California’s Central Coast at San Antonio Recreation Area in Bradley, CA with a 5-day camping festival featuring over 300 musicians, artists, workshops, and speakers including Big Gigantic, Tokimonsta, Chet Faker, Grimes, Jamie XX and many more.  The lineup for Woogie Weekend will be announced this month and will take place at SoCal’s Oak Canyon Park in Irvine.
