Exciting news echo from the valleys surrounding Lake San Antonio in Bradley, California. Next Memorial Day Weekend, Lightning in a Bottle is returning once again to bring joy and elation to thousands of festival goers and music lovers alike for the 11th straight year. And this year, the people at The Do LaB are especially excited to announce that there will be a fifth day of fun added to the festival!
A limited amount of discounted tickets will be going on sale January 4th at 10am for a 24 hour flash sale. General Admission tickets will then go on sale starting January 5th at 10am. Check the Lightning in a Bottle website for all ticket and camping related questions. http://lightninginabottle.org/
Previous Lightning in a Bottle lineups have included incredible artists such as Bassnectar, Flume, RL Grime Chet Faker, Odesza, Moby, Beats Antique, Griz, Shpongle, Rusko, Odesza and Tipper. It’s safe to assume that next year’s lineup will be the festival’s best one yet. Here is the 2015 LIB recap video to give you a little taste of what it’s like when you trap lightning in a bottle.
As previously mentioned, next year’s LIB will be expanding to a full five days of music, art, and education. With the purchase of an Early Arrival Pass, festival goers will be allowed to enter the site on Wednesday, May 25th at noon. Though there will be no music on the first day, there will be an abundance of art, food, yoga and informational talks for attendees to explore. The main perk of arriving early on Wednesday is that it allows you to settle in, meet your neighbors, and acclimate to your surroundings before the upcoming weekend of love, laughter, and loud music. The Early Arrival Pass will also give you access to the High Ground Camp site, located perfectly in the middle of everything for easy access to the entire festival grounds.
Lightning in a Bottle is truly one of the most unique and extraordinary music festivals in the entire world. The atmosphere of the festival, which is set by the attitudes of the festival attendees, is unlike any I have ever been to before or since. Earlier this year was my first time experiencing the love and happiness that encompass this beautiful festival, and it certainly won’t be my last.
