What if the new season of American Horror Story took place in a haunted Studio 54? Well, headlining opening night would be Dolls. Nikki Milovanovic, formerly the lead singer of Canadian synth pop band The Royal Society, moved to London in 2013 to begin her solo career under her new moniker: Dolls. Part new wave, part gothic, all avant-garde Dolls is poised for a killer 2016.

 

Dolls’ sophomore album, Eat It Up (dropping May 20th), is a combined effort with UK producer Fauxplay and we cannot wait for it to come out in all its synthy goodness.

At first glance, BADBADNOTGOOD is one of the more curious placements on the lineup. The Canadian trio has made its name in avant-garde jazz jamming. Delve a little deeper, and it comes to light that their off-kilter beat work has also earned them features alongside stars in the hip-hop and R&B scene. Catch them Saturday for what is looking to be one of the most unique sets of the weekend. Expect some guest features.

Part funk, part glitch, part indie, all groovy. Hailing from Oslo, Norway this Scandinavian electronica duo is sure to be one of the more upbeat and memorable performances in the desert. Lemaitre (pronounced lem-my-tray) consists of former classmates Ketil Jansen and Ulrik Denizou Lund and boy do these two know their synths. Fusing traditional instruments and original synth melodies seamlessly, every Lemaitre production is carefully crafted and proportioned perfectly.

 

 

The viking duo’s 2016 is already off to a massive start with the release of their EP earlier this year 1749. Sonically, this release has a heavy use of piano and takes a few cues from neo-French touch music in the same vain as Breakbot or SebastiAn. Their live set is not one to miss. See you out there at the Polo Club.

Further Future | Lineup | Tickets

 

Last year, the famed Robot Heart crew decided it was time to host their own desert oasis outside of Black Rock. And thus, Further Future was born. A forward-facing experience in music, performance, food, arts, community, and inspiration, this particular “renegade” festival has already set itself up to be a staple for progress-aficionados. Unmistakably calling on its Burner roots, Further Future stands as a shorter and less demanding introduction to the future of festival culture.

Temple Days | Tickets

 

Last year, we attended The Do Lab’s Lucent Temple of Consciousness Temple Days Pre-Party and were astounded by the spirituality and synchronicity of everything. This year, the eye-opening LIB pre-event touches down at Wanderlust Hollywood for 12 hours of workshops, yoga and movement, food, art and musical performances designed to expand the heart and open the mind.

 

This year’s event will host speaker headliners John Perkins and Dream Rockwell, and music from DJ Tasha Blank, among many others. Many of these speakers will be at LIB as well; however, Temple Days provides a rush-free and guilt-free atmosphere by which one can absorb the totality of each artist’s message. If ever you’ve been interested in going deeper into free thought, this is an event specially curated for you.
