While L.A. dance fans are prepping their sunscreen and skimpy attire for Coachella, another Southland electronica festival has announced a lineup worth noting.

The Do LaB's annual Lightning in a Bottle made its poster official today, and it features some unexpected top billings. Nicolas Jaar, the young jazz-infused experimentalist who stunned a sold-out Echoplex last year, leads a pack of electronic acts that includes the reggae-dabbling dubstep auteur Rusko, Tycho's psychedelic meditations and the globe-trotting acid house vet Lee Burridge.

TIMELINE: Coachella and Stagecoach

The festival usually leans harder into EDM and crossover dubstep fare, so it's exciting to see a marquee electronica fest going deeper and more difficult in its marquee bookings.

Veteran house producers Marques Wyatt and Miguel Migs, Patten Bar and Voodoo's Eduardo Castillo, L.A. dream-popper Goldroom, beat scene maven Eskmo and Ninja Tune/Rhymesayers stalwart Blockhead are among the other notable names on the undercard. 

The fest takes place July 11-15 at Lake Skinner in Temecula. Tickets are on sale now at
