Fresh off a chart-topping album release the famed electronic icon Bonobo is served up his signature brand of lively, transcending grooves. For his first LIB yet, the high-octane UK-based sensation TroyBoi joined the fray and the venerable Rüfüs Du Sol bringing a scintillating mix of live and electronic instruments to the mainstage.

Haitian-born producer Kaytranada rendered a drum-heavy set to showcase ear-catching sounds from 99.9%, one of the most celebrated albums of 2016. At the illustrious Lightning Stage, house-heads danced all night long in the mesmerizing pop-savvy live electronic show planned by Bob Moses
