A couple of years ago, I attended Lucidity Festival for the first time, and ever since, I’ve wanted to return for its eclectic music programming, vibe, art, and down-to-earth crowd that prefers an intimate experience. Just last week, Lucidity announced its 2015 lineup, months after selling out of the initial “Early Owl” passes, and it’s looking like it will be another fantastic 3-day weekend run from April 10-12 in Santa Barbara. Headliners such as The Polish Ambassador, Thriftworks, and Fort Knox Five hold down the bass music front on the Lucid Stage, while Elephant Revival and Dirtwire grace the Alive stage, along with other stand out underground and local talent scattered throughout.
In addition to the Lucid and Alives stages, the Nomad stage, curated by Santa Barbara’s Music Is Love, rounds out the bill with an on-point selection of house, techno, and some more bass music. Artists like Doorly, dirtybird’s Christian Martin, Pumpkin, Perfect Driver affiliates Wood Holly and Ballast, Trevor Kelly, Bix King, A La Mode, and a couple of our own, The Interns, will man the decks on that stage throughout the Lucidity weekend. To highlight the Nomad stage, we’ve put together a music-focused showcase of select artists from its lineup to get you ready for what’s to come.

The first edition contains gems from the likes of Booka Shade, Kidnap Kid, Lindsay Lowend, 16 Bit Lolitas, Tom Misch, Overjoy and more. Ranging from the realms of house music to future bass, “Industry Analysis 001″ has a little something for everyone.
