Given that, the stage’s theme embodies the groundbreaking performances, creating a spectacular experience for attendees.
“We’re definitely not trying to play the same game we are seeing with all the massive festivals these days when we book our music programming. Forget the big names you can see at 10 other festivals this year. For us the goal is to craft a musical playlist that will perfectly guide people along the experience we’re trying to create. We book each stage to be its own separate journey on any given day and we try to diversify it as much as possible so when you’re wandering around during the weekend you can always find something just right for you. This has been our goal since day one and it continues to shape how we book today.””- Lightning in a Bottle music director and co-founder, Jesse Flemming. -Jesse Flemming.
Lightning in a Bottle has become a destination for a community that seeks adventure, self-empowerment, and unknown talent. The lakeside venue experience is characterized by the musical environments, captivating installation artwork, and cause-driven instructive programming.
With such flattery structure, the music industry has focused its imitation towards LIB. The festival has become a transformational and spiritual event to attend that include yoga classes, group meditation sessions, creative art workshops, engaging games, and much more that is healthy for the mind, body, and soul.
LIB invites you to join in on the experience for a weekend that won’t be regrettable. Get more information and purchase your pass here!
