Lightning in a Bottle 2010

A fun little reminder of things of the recent past, and things yet to come… The Lightning in a Bottle Music and Arts Festival sets the bar high for what a festival should be. Every year it gets better. Amazing music, live art with silent bidding. Great, wholesome foods, and health and wellness in the form of yoga, meditation and exploration of the depths of spirituality if that’s your thing.

Don’t miss Lightning in a Bottle! Takes place over Memorial Day weekend every year. Check the LiB website for more info, lovely photos and video. Connect with this amazing community. Your life will be changed for the better.

I’ve recently discovered the usefulness of Twitter. I used to think it was silly, but at the Lightning in a Bottle music and arts festival, I found it to be very beneficial.

LIB had been constantly updating their Twitter feed, letting you know who was currently on what stage, and other up-to-the-minute happenings throughout the weekend event. Very useful indeed.

Since 2000, the Temple has been a place for catharsis, remembrance, and rebirth, offering Burning Man participants a physical reminder to embrace change.

Drawing its inspiration from canyons carved over time by wind and water, the Temple of Flux rises from the desert floor as a series of graceful double-curved walls. Their wide, heavy bases taper as they ascend, leading the eye from a solid urban foundation to an increasingly fragmented upper edge as these long angles reach to the sky.

The Temple is a collaborative effort of three long-time community artists; Rebecca Anders, Jess Hobbs, and Peter Kimelman; along with numerous Burning Man communities and friends.

We have a huge range of experience and backgrounds, with one unifying vision: creating awe-inspiring, memorable art that emerges from the community and influences change.

Lightning in a Bottle Art and Music Festival 2010

Lightning in a Bottle 2010

Lightning in a Bottle Returns – Exceptional Art and Music Festival

Only a Southern California dance, art, and music festival can feature Daedelus and downward facing dog, but that’s exactly what the fifth annual Do LaB Lightning in a Bottle art and music festival will offer when it takes over 100+ acres of Irvine, California’s Oak Canyon Ranch over Memorial Day weekend.

The four-day, three-night festival bills itself as “equal parts music, art and green workshops.” Accordingly, those drawn to bone-crunching bass and funky rhythms can choose from over 90 artists including Booka Shade, The Album Leaf, The Glitch Mob, The Very Best, Daedelus, Daddy Kev, and Nosaj Thing.

Lightning in a Bottle will also feature a set from Krystee, the winner of the festival’s mix-tape contest that found DJ’s from across America looking for a chance to perform by submitting tapes using only Lightning in a Bottle acts.

Attendees can also explore other options, via green-living workshops that offer “practical, do-it-yourself lessons on creating a healthy, low-cost, sustainable lifestyle.” The workshops included “Small Space Container Gardening,” “How to Make Raw Chocolate” and “Growing & Using Medicinal Herbs.” Those looking to loosen up after three nights in a sleeping bag can increase their elasticity via an array of yoga courses taking place throughout the day.

An Art Festival as Much as a Music Festival

The artistically inclined may find solace in the festival’s art gallery, installation pieces, or its Lightning in a Paintcan Project, during which local artists will transform over-sized mural panels into paintings using recycled paint. The finished pieces will be sold in a silent auction, with proceeds going to Sonic Muze, a nonprofit group that provides underfunded schools with music instruments and art supplies. With three-day passes available for $190 (including camping), the festival figures to bring enough stimulation so that everyone will need to say Savasana by Monday night.
