Returning to Buena Vista Lake in Southern California on Memorial Day Weekend, May 25-30 Lightning in a Bottle (LIB) music festival promises a lineup of fantastic music guests, healing yoga and movement sessions, art, interactivity, and learning.
The event is taking place on the shores of Buena Vista Lake in Southern California, hosted by the Do LaB team who have been curating LIB since 2006. Naturally, the primary draw for an event like this one is a stellar lineup of music headliners which for this year include Glass Animals, Kaytranada, Chet Faker, Monolink , Big Wild, Four Tet, and Ekali – just to name a few. This is an immersive, five-day experience that kicks off with a Lakeside Launch Party at the LIBeach ahead of full days and bright nights of performances. For 2022 Do LaB is also premiering a new stage at LIB called The Junk Yard, first seen at Burning Man, which will be the home of the Junk In The Trunk art car. View the complete lineup by stage here. Here is a playlist for inspiration and preparation.
The wellness portion of the festival features amplified yoga led by Donovan McGrath with Rob Garza (of Thievery Corporation), more info on classes and workshops here. Art & Interactivity programming includes Fire Flow Zone, where attendees gather for fire dancing in a safe space, The Playa Relámpago will celebrate celebrating Latinx, African and Indigenous cultures, while Frick Frack will be a place for various games.
Compass music, learning, and culture programming is another height of this year’s festival, creating opportunities for attendees to gain life-changing lessons to bring back to their day-to-day lives through a series of talks, workshops, and performances from world-renowned visionaries, experts, and thought-leaders. Some of the key innovative workshops will include Art of Benevolent Leadership in Ritual Community, Psychedelic JEDI Training, Hope in the Anthropocene, Ceremonial Chants & Medicine Music, Remote Viewing for Psychic Development, and No Means No – How to (Not) Talk to Cops.
