After making a literal splash during an unseasonably rainy weekend in Southern California last summer, Do LaB’s beloved technicolor progeny and Lightning in a Bottle’s spirited sibling Woogie Weekend returns for the second annual gathering this July 8 – 10, 2016 to its home at Oak Canyon Park in Silverado, California.
Boasting two magical stages affectionately dubbed The Hive and the Beat Nest, the inaugural Woogie Weekend proved to be an intimate musical affair of exquisite house beats and techno’s elite. With a soundscape led by the stylings of Woogie Stage staple Pumpkin alongside Danny Daze, Jonas Rathsman, Moon Boots, Henry Saiz, Nick Warren,Way Out West, Tara Books, Autograf, J.Phlip, Mikey Lion, Adam Freeland, RÜFÜS DU SOL, and Gigamesh, Do LaB curated an impressive roster totaling over 50 in number. Another marquee feature of the Woogie Weekend musical offerings included a very special “All Day I Dream” Sunday stage takeover conducted by the dream weaver himself, Lee Burridge.
The magic of Woogie Weekend is best showcased in the 2015 Official Recap Video. Dive inside as Do LaB captures the people, moments and landscape that join together to create the effervescent spirit of Woogie Weekend.
A dynamic setting with a sprawling landscape, Do LaB transformed what was once known as the old-stomping ground for their long-revered Lightning in a Bottle festival into a mecca for fun and frivolity, ripe with delightful details that enhanced the weekend spirit of positive vibes and perseverance. Through rain and shine, revelers dove head first into the comprehensive assortment of activities Woogie Weekend had to offer, including an adult-sized slip ‘n slide hosted by LA’s silliest and sophisticated performance troupe extraordinaire Bijoulette. This time around Do LaB is stealing some of the more vibrant elements from their “Big Fish” stage at Coachella by upping the ante with new water games, misters, and strategic splashing!
Adding to the list of activities are sunrise yoga sets, live art from the Do Art Foundation and a healthy buffet of local fare to satisfy the palette. Five-time Winner of A Greener Festival’s ‘Outstanding Award’ for Lightning in a Bottle, Do LaB makes no exception for Woogie Weekend, as the festival embraces eco-conscious initiatives, including free water stations, a recycling system, composting, and a “leave it better/leave it beautiful” policy.
Woogie Weekend makes its jubilant return July 8th – 10th with its world-class, one-of-a-kind production that transcends the music and color spectrum, and the carefree vibes of summer.
