FESTIVAL // LIGHTING IN A BOTTLE 2013: A Truly Enlightening Trip

* UPDATE * Read live coverage from the festival here *

JULY 11-15, 2013 // Temecula, CA // 60 mi outside Los Angeles

The Do LaB (Coachella) and Southern California host Lightning In A Bottle 2013, the region’s purest and most creatively extravagant festival of the summer. Attendees can explore a 5 day celebration of art, music, performance, sustainability and life. Interactive Areas facilitate communal art projects, classes in “The Learning Kitchen” and exercises to strengthen the body and the mind. Expect opportunities at every corner to inspire you: meditation, yoga, tea, philosophy talks and music in The Temple of Consciousness; art installations on hills overlooking surrounding forests and Lake Skinner; focus on communal love and inner peace has never taken such a beautiful form.

Sound like too much spiritual program for you? Fear not, the music is definitely the main course. Headliners are still being announced, but check out some of this year’s lineup so far:

  • Nicolas Jaar
  • Purity Ring
  • Rusko
  • Emancipator
  • Tycho
  • Acid Pauli
  • Griz
  • Paper Diamond

Expect beautiful minimal electronic with Nicolas Jaar, bass-whipping dance with Tycho and Rusko and much, much more. Last year, festival goers saw Apparat, Big Gigantic, Bassnectar and The Glitch Mob. Choose heavy or light with this year’s lineup, each for a different state of mind.

You’ll meet new friends, eat tasty home-grown food and dance among music-lovers from all over the world. Come to dance, come to listen, come to learn and come to share. A puff and some meditation later, you might find it’s the perfect CA destination this summer.
