Fresh off a sublime 12th year producing the famed Do LaB stage at Coachella and with their own world-renowned Lightning in a Bottle arts and music festival coming up over Memorial Day Weekend, LA-based event production wizards Do LaB are proud to unveil the exhilarating 2016 lineup for Woogie Weekend festival, LIB’s splashy summer sibling. Returning to Oak Canyon Park in Silverado, CA for a sophomore season this July 8 - 10, 2016, Woogie Weekend will play host to two strikingly prominent stages - The Hive and the Beat Nest, to showcase bouncy house beats and tantalizing techno amidst the carefree prismatic vibes found within the delightfully wet ‘n’ wild playground.
With incredible techno artists like BLOND:ISH, Jon Hopkins, and Claptone, we’re positive this weekend will be filled with too much dancing and many new friends. Woogie Weekenders can look forward to sultry soundscapes arrayed by powerhouse duo, Barcelona DJs Anstascia and Vivie-Ann better known as BLOND:ISH, an exquisitely complex set from the mystifying golden-masked Claptone, and an otherworldly performance from master storyteller and musical sorcerer Damian Lazarus. Among top performances for the weekend’s festivities include dance party vibes from the regal ladies of London Eli & Fur, catchy melodies and a whirlwind of ethereal vocal samples courtesy of Kidnap Kid, and an unforgettable live set from dance floor commander Mathew Jonson (live), whose craft bends conventional laws of house and techno.
Also descending upon Oak Canyon Park are internationally-acclaimed acts, the legendary techno god of north Germany, Hamburg’s Oliver Huntemann, and Mallorca’s TȂCHES, best known for producing romantic, euphoric and alluring soundtracks. Look forward to show-stopping sets from multi-award winning music producer and composer Jon Hopkins and legendary Chicago native turned San Francisco-transplant, house, acid jazz and downtempo producer/DJ Mark Farina who round out the extensive list of standout acts slated to hit Woogie Weekend, alongside a glorious mix of this year’s resident authorities of house and techno such as Nu, FDVM, Rodriguez Jr, Roman Flügel, Extrawelt, and Sebastian Mullaert aka Minilogue who will make appearances over the weekend plus many others!
Stay tuned for more coverage after the festival!
