ADA Info

Lightning in a Bottle is accessible to all guests with disabilities. It is our goal to continually make the festival more accessible, and we thank you for your support and participation.

Wheelchair Accessibility

The venue is fully navigable for people with mobility disabilities with the assistance of our ADA Compliance team. ADA camping/parking is conveniently located near the main points of activity. Thus there are accessible pathways between this reserved campsite, the vendor area, and almost all of the stages. There is a steep hill which separates this area from the space with the Woogie Stage. Our ADA team will provide transportation over this terrain for patrons who need assistance. To request a ride, please visit the Access Center.

Access Center

All accessibility-related inquires can be answered at our Access Center, which will be located at ADA camping. Additionally this is the location to recharge wheelchair batteries and/or the other assistive technology requiring electrical recharging, as well as store medical equipment or just get some relief from the sun.


ATM’s and Concessions are fully accessible and located throughout the venue. If assistance is required please confer with a festival staff member.


A separate ADA lot will be available for patrons with a handicap placard and the applicable proof that that placard belongs to them. Please follow signage or ask staff upon entering the festival how to access this lot.


For ADA patrons who are camping, there is a camping lot with close proximity to the festival entrance and is located close to all activity areas/stages. At this camping location, power will be provided for assistive technology. To gain access to this lot, a handicap placard and paperwork to show that it belongs to person requesting access will be required, in addition to a camping pass. For campers in RV’s please contact us in advance at

First Aid

We have several First Aid locations that are noted on the festival maps. Professional medical staff can help you with your medical needs at these locations.

Pets & Service Animals

No animals or pets of any kind are permitted at Lightning in a Bottle (except your spirit animal of course!). The festival environment can be very unhealthy for house pets and can take a severe toll on their mental state.

This means:
NO Emotional Support Animals
NO Therapy Dogs
NO Exceptions
Trained service animals are permitted on a case-by-case basis.  All service animals need to be registered at the Tolls upon entry into the festival grounds, and will be issued specific credentials. All service animals must be housebroken and under the proper care of the handler. Please keep in mind, it is illegal to fraudulently claim that your pet is a legitimate service animal.Please contact our ADA department for more information HERE.
