Love Machine have just announced a bumper lineup for May’s Edition, as they return to the Californian Desert for their latest instalment May 6-9. The “restorative musical and wellness getaway” in the sun-bathed and boulder-strewn mountains of Jacumba, California returns with an all new third stage and tasteful line-up of international musical legends old and new including Roman Flugel, Âme, Doc Martin, Riva Starr, Marc Houle, Colyn, Oliver Koletzki, Jimi Jules, Jennifer Cardini and many more.
Located just 75 minutes outside San Diego, organisers describe the event as “an all encompassing mix of art, yoga, music, workshops and lifestyle awareness with experts and performers from the local areas as well as around the world. It is located well away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. It boasts a recently renovated restaurant with two pools and a spa and a wealth of natural features, hot spring and clean air that will make you forget all your woes and worries in an instant.”
They boast production of the highest quality, with stylish stage designs and immersive light and sound across all stages. On top of the usual two, this year will feature a third stage to hosts day parties and it will be nestled in the centre of the festival grounds and decked out with a custom pool, cabanas, shaded tapestry, lounges, misting station and bar that allow you to take advantage of the hot desert sun and enjoy a little vibration while jumping in for a dip to escape the heat.
Special guests will include Serge Devant, a well rounded set from the secret guest “acidsloth”, party sounds from Snatch! boss Riva Starr and a special sunrise closeout with Anjunadeep’s David Hohme who’s sets have become legendary at the exquisite Bubbles and Bass parties seen on the playa. The rest of the soundtrack is a mouthwatering one that takes in many different points on the house and techno spectrum. Friday will see German icon Roman Flugel bring his hard to define electronic sounds with Love Machine resident Doc Martin serving up his famous West Coast house and Jimi Jules offering some slick techno.
Saturday welcomes Innervisions pair and deep house shamen Âme, electro mainstay and Correspondent label lead Jennifer Cardini and more from Trikk and Echonomist, with a secret Sunday headliner TBA with direct support from stil vor talent boss, Oliver Koletzki, a live show from minimal man Marc Houle as well as sets from Afterlife superstar Colyn and the amazing producer Mihai Popoviciu.
Next to the music, visitors can expect a mix of grand art installations, sound baths, lectures, bodywork, meditation and healthy food offerings with a focus on plant-based living and plenty of holistic workshops including yoga and mindfulness. Also new for this year are some special shift pods for out of town travellers or people who want to elevate their stay with a unique glamping experience. Each one will be equipped with all the necessary amenities for a destination travel experience.
