This year brings the 20th anniversary of SoCal’s Lightning in a Bottle festival, and its organizers have spared no expense.
This week brought the release of a star-studded Phase 1 lineup poster, revealing Rezz, Diplo, ZHU, Tale of Us and The Glitch Mob as headliners.
Taking place at Buena Vista Lake in Bakersfield, from May 24-29, the fest will host more than 60 artists via this first wave of announcements.

A host of bass music acts—from Liquid Stranger and LSDream to Moore Kismet and Mersiv—rounds out the expansive bill of music-makers handpicked for the iconic event’s milestone.
