5 Ways to Maximize a 5-Day LIB Experience

There’s nothing quite like bearing witness to the production of a festival, watching as a city rises from nothing into a mesmerizing playground of learning, loving, and a whole lot more. This year at Lightning in a Bottle, guests who purchase Early Arrival passes to arrive on Wednesday will have the opportunity to peek behind the veil, to see the LIB crew sprint across the finish line to create one of the most fantastic festivals in the world.

In order to truly appreciate the full scope of this event, you need to revel in as much as LIB has to offer, and that means jumping in the deep end for the full five days. For those who arrive on Wednesday, here are just a few experiences to enjoy with a full extra day at the festival…
