Look forward to show-stopping sets from multi-award winning music producer and composer Jon Hopkins and legendary Chicago native turned San Francisco-transplant, house, acid jazz and downtempo producer/DJ Mark Farina who round out the extensive list of standout acts slated to hit Woogie Weekend, alongside a glorious mix of this year’s resident authorities of house and techno such as Nu, FDVM, Rodriguez Jr (live), Roman Flügel, Extrawelt, and Sebastian Mullaert aka Minilogue who will make appearances over the weekend plus many others full lineup release below!

In celebration of Woogie Weekend’s second anniversary, Do LaB has revealed this whimsical 2016 Woogie Weekend Official Lineup Trailer displaying the abundance of fun found on the blissful grounds of Oak Canyon Park.

Attendees at this year’s Coachella Weekends 1 & 2 got a sneak peek of the musical and architectural magic Do LaB has up their sleeves for their upcoming spring/summer events when they hosted their namesake “Big Fish” stage on the Indio grounds this past April to a resounding success!  Woogie Weekend serves as one of the more colorful and intimate affairs Do LaB will host throughout the year.

The delicately-crafted selection of artists is perfectly juxtaposed against the immersive, interactive and lively grounds upon which the festival is built. A veritable adult-sized wonderland replete with an abundance of activities to further amplify the energy of the weekend, Woogie Weekend welcomes revelers with a plethora of water-themed installations designed to be both optically-dazzling and a functional way to cool off. True-to-form, Do LaB provides a complete festival experience beyond their stellar production, with sunrise yoga sets, live art from the Do Art Foundation, the finest selection of fresh cuisine for all campers, and an array of magnetizing vendors, bursting with tasty treasures. Woogie Weekend, as with all Do LaB endeavors, upholds their core ethos of eco-friendly celebrations, implementing a “Leave it better, leave it beautiful” policy, in addition to providing free water stations, and both recycling and compost systems.
