Lightning In A Bottle Is Not Your Average Festival & Here's Why

By: Aviva Sonenreich

Memorial Day planning just got significantly easier with LIB, Lightning in A Bottle Arts and Music Festival, which takes place in Bradley, California. This immersive art experience is unlike any music festival of its kind. For that, we have the LA-based artist collective, the Do LaB to thank.

It’s important to note that LIB is not just a music festival. It’s a gathering and celebration of the arts. Fire dancers? Check. Late night burlesque shows? Covered. Need we say more?


As for the main event: the music. Now aside from a stellar lineup, the Do LaB's stage design is nothing short of a spectacle. The Do Lab employs artists to create open-air structures that double as stages. The festival is homemade, and you can taste it.


The headliners this year are notable. LIB 2018 will be graced with top musicians from across the globe. Spanning genres from tech house, to jamtonica, to feel good hip hop, you’ll find us front and center for Zhu, Anderson .Paak & The Free Nationals, Nicole Moudaber, and newcomers to the scene X&G.

To add to the entertainment there will be talks, workshops, wellness practices, cooking classes and more. Need to sweat? Enjoy LIB's yoga classes, dances classes, and finish it off with a group meditation. Perhaps after the Must - Dash 5k Run, feast at a sit-down dinner at one of LIB's farm to table dining experiences. Plus- don’t forget to grab your unicorn floatation device and take a dip in lake LIB (formally known as Lake San Antonio).
