2024 has already seen a slew of festival lineup announcements, and following the disappointment by some (most) people at one particularly large Southern California festival’s lineup, the lineup from Lightning in a Bottle, So Cal’s premiere boutique camping festival, is utterly jaw dropping.
Returning to Buena Vista Lake, a couple of hours north of Los Angeles for Memorial Day Weekend, the lineup reads like a dance/indie music fan’s fever dream. Skrillex, Labrinth, Lane 8, James Blake and M.I.A. consist of the topline headliners, any blogger in 2014 would be salivating at this lineup. The next line of headliners is equally exhilarating as ISOxo, Fatboy Slim, CloZee and Nora En Pure round out a stellar group of artists. The festival provides a living and breathing outpost for misfits, creatives, and experience hunters to experience an array of top-tier music curation, art installations, immersive environments, and educational programming.
The 2024 edition is all about returning to why the festival started in the first place – having as much fun as possible. The LIB experience continues to be one of many facets and paths. It’s a festival defined as both a transformational wonderland and a wild party where freak flags fly. A place to learn and create, but also reconnect with one’s mischievous inner child, where surprises hide around every corner.
Lightning in a Bottle is a true off-the-grid experience, providing five full days to explore the music, art, and magic the expansive grounds have to offer. Arriving from day one gives weekend warriors of all kinds the opportunity to pick out the best campsites alongside their crew, attend pre-parties soundtracked by lineup artists, and become fully immersed in the festival before the crowd.
New for this year, Lightning in a Bottle is introducing three day tickets and hotel package options. The three day pass will be available beginning from the general on sale, and makes the LIB experience more accessible to those who’d like to build their own adventure at their own pace. Other new packages available this year include Easy Peasy Pre-Set Camping and Pre-Set RV options, taking away any of the stress of setting up camp upon arrival and instead being met with the convenience of having accommodations taken care of from the outset.
