All about DGTL LIB
This year’s DGTL edition welcomes a taste of the historically eclectic LIB musical programming. Of course, you’re going to get the amazing lineup that you’ve come to expect from LIB. For starters, the lineup is topped by North American electronic originator MOBY, globetrotting house and techno icon Seth Troxler, genre-defying duo SOFI TUKKER, and superstar vocalist and dj ALUNA. Absolutely killer! But of course, you’ve got more! The lineup is a testament to the coming together of styles that LiB has always forged and continues with the likes of Purple Disco Machine, Patrice Baumel, Mikey Lion, WhoMadeWho, Sango, The Polish Ambassador, TSHA, Tor, HOLLY, The Librarian, Desert Dwellers, and more.
Not only will performers curate one-of-a-kind sets for guests to enjoy, but artists like MOBY, Desert Dwellers, Megan Hamilton, and Mikey Lion will perform in favorite LIB stages. I can’t wait to see how they do this digitally! The team will recreate the stages as digital environments by Vita Motus Design Studio to create a full immersive experience. From the colorful tendrils of the Woogie to the striking bass-heavy temple of The Stacks, there’ll be a musical home for everyone. The pioneers plan to utilize Unreal Engine technology and leveraging live production expertise. As a result, all elements of a real production are able to seamlessly integrate and bring an engaging broadcast to life from various remote locations, including set design, lighting design, video mapped content, embedded performances, camera capture, and more.
There Are Workshops Too?
Furthering their commitment to both the arts and digital innovation, Do LaB will welcome live painter Benidigital to the event and will be partnering with Modern.com to sell the original works as an NFT after the show, eternalizing the weekend as a piece of digital art for one lucky collector. Are you as sold as I am?
Do LaB regulars know best that it remains the wacky surprises and hidden turns that make the Lightning in a Bottle experience truly one of a kind. DGTL LiB strays not from this journey, welcoming signature immersive partners like The Jive Joint, Fungineers, William Close & The Earth Harp, and a slew of other bizarities you won’t find anywhere else.
Okay, I’m Sold! Take Me To DGTL LIB
DGTL LiB will kick off early for round two, with a restream of DGTL LiB 1.0 on Wednesday, May 26, a night of classic hits Live from the Mixtape on May 27th, and proper pre-party vibes from Patricio & Friends on Friday, May 28th.
If you can point to one thing that connects the diverse and fantastic LiB community it’s the shared resilience between event producer and attendee. It is this joint adventure that continues to define the experience within and beyond the gates of Lightning in a Bottle, spilling into the internet for now and forward to the idyllic shores of Buena Vista Lake on Memorial Day Weekend 2022.
