Lightning in a Bottle festival, Bradley

Lightning in a Bottle (LIB) is an annual music festival in the Central Valley region of California first held in 2006. It is presented by The Do LaB, which seeks to promote sustainability, social cohesion, and creative expression.

All in all, only a few hours outside of L.A. and a better bang for your buck than Coachella to get to let loose for five days straight, LIB is your gateway festival for those wanting to go off the grid, see a stacked lineup of music, pretend you’re at sleepaway camp and get as weird as you’d like. This community will back you up.

Lightning in a Bottle is a mix of music, art, and culture. In addition to music performances, the festival also features guest speakers, visual and interactive art installations, yoga classes, group meditation, and other attractions.

The sun rises on Lightning in a Bottle, a five-day extravaganza combining music acts, culture talks and holistic programming—all set against the sweet scenes of Buena Vista Lake in Kern County.

For the 2020 festival, GA tickets are $349–$369 for four-day passes with access starting Thursday, or GA $419–$439 for a five-day pass with access starting Wednesday (for those who want to settle in early and skip any lines). For car camping, RV passes, or boutique camping prices look here.

Lightning in a Bottle encapsulates the thrill summer camp used to bring, only it’s for adults who are here to party—and boost their well-being, too. Attendees can keep entertained all day with yoga, meditation, body healing (think: accupuncture), fermentation cooking lessons at the Learning Kitchen, sex lectures at the Beacon and abstract art classes at the Artclave.

Others may wander the festival grounds to shop among vendors or hunt for an acai bowl or a crepe from the mostly vegan and vegetarian food trucks.
