In the wake of the 2020 cancellation of Lightning in a Bottle due to the effects of COVID-19, Do LaB, one of North America’s premier independent music and arts festival promoters, revealed the lineup and more for the first-ever DGTL LIB livestream music festival, taking place Memorial Day Weekend, May 22-24. DGTL LIB will not only have live streamed performances by LIB artists but will also keep the LIB community alive with educational talks and discussions, yoga, meditation and live painting.

“For the first time ever, a branded festival environment has been recreated in a gaming engine to be used for live broadcast,” said Heather Shaw, CEO of Vita Motus Design Studio. “We at Vita Motus think that Lightning in a Bottle is an ideal environment to showcase our realtime rendering capabilities because of its completely unique architecture, iconic design, and immersive content.”
Select artists will perform in favorite LIB stages, recreated 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 Thunder Stage, there’ll be a musical home for everyone. By utilizing Unreal Engine technology and leveraging live production expertise, 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.
“Here at Do LaB, we've always been forward thinking and our longtime partnership with Vita Motus has helped us bring our insane visions to life,” said Jesse Flemming, President of Do LaB, Inc. “We are excited to be pushing the envelope with them again, but this time in the digital world.”
The educational haven of The Compass will offer viewers with in-depth discussions on Aliens & ExtraTerrestrials with film producer Alan Steinfeld and a special Kiss the Ground presentation from actress Nat Kelly, while the ArtClave and the Learning Kitchen provide viewers with workshops on Water Color Painting with Coffee, Aphrodisiac Chocolates, and making Sourdough Bread.
The Compass will also bring guided yoga and meditation instruction, from favorite instructors such as Kundalini yoga expert Jai Dev and Deep Exhale house savant Marques Wyatt. Now, more than ever, it’s important to unwind the mind and experience a one of a kind space for dancers, yoga enthusiasts, and movers to take a load off and regenerate their energy. Through yoga, art workshops, live painting auctions and more, DGTL LIB is poised to transport attendees out of their homes and immerse them in the true festival experience.
