The creative masterminds over at the Do LaB are making some serious changes to their usual roster this year. Known to the public as the creators of Coachella’s most colorful stage, the team has just announced that their newest festival offering, Woogie Weekend, will “be going on the shelf for the time being."
In just two short years, the intimate festival spinoff created a tight-knit community centered around the love of house music, conscious living, sustainable partying, and of course, the woogie. Though we are grieving its momentary lapse, we have full faith in the team that they are rendering whatever means necessary to continue growing and pushing the limits of festival experience.
If you were looking forward to getting your Do LaB fix this year, worry not—the Woogie spirit will be alive and well at Coachella as well as at their flagship festival Lightning in a Bottle (LIB). Here’s a quick taste of how the Woogie went down last year at LIB:
Returning to the grounds of Bradley, California this year, Lightning in a Bottle is a progressive festival incomparable to any other. Spanning over six days this Memorial Day Weekend (May 24-29), the vast grounds of the San Antonio Recreation Area are transformed into a playground of immersive art, music, culture and celebration. With over four stages—The Lightning Stage, The Woogie, The Thunder Stage and the DIY-style Grand Artique—any attendee can find their niche in the broad musical landscape.
This year’s diverse lineup includes some of the biggest names in dance music, from ENTER. creator Richie Hawtin headlining the Woogie, to bass moguls TroyBoi and Bassnectar at the Thunder and Lightning stages. Also joining the party will be LA house music hero Marques Wyatt, Canadian Grammy Award-winning duo Bob Moses, producer extraordinaire Kaytranada, Bonobo, Claude VonStroke’s alias Barclay Crenshaw, Machinedrum, and Stephan Bodzin.
Other notable acts include underground house and techno artists Adam Port, Guy J, Lauren Lane, Eagles & Butterflies, Julia Govor, and Leon Vynehall. If you don’t want to miss out on experiencing the Woogie vibes in their rightful birthplace, you can grab a ticket right here and check out the full lineup below:
With such an impressive repertoire of work up their sleeves, we're looking forward to even greater Do LaB adventures in the years to come.

"We are excited to share more details on this groundbreaking project we have in the works, but we ask for your patience as we devote this summer to focusing on the project and creating an entirely new festival experience from the ground up.”
