LIB in the New York Times
“L.I.B. is one of the pinnacle festivals of West Coast conscious culture,” said Mr. Weiseth, using shorthand for Lightning in a Bottle, among a new type of gathering called “transformational festivals.” They could be described as the slightly smaller, psychedelic-art-and-electronic-dance-music-centered, commercialized progeny of Burning Man.”
“Held over four days in May and billed as a “heart and mind expanding oasis,” Lightning in a Bottle, in its ninth year, drew 15,000 participants, one of the largest and more influential of these festivals.”

inthemix Interview: Why Moby Chose LIB
At a festival like Lightning In A Bottle, community can happen through art, food, meditation, yoga – so many different ways to encounter other like-minded people. During the ’80s and ’90s, festivals were almost exclusively about music, but with the rise of Burning Man and Bonnaroo and Wanderlust, people are realizing a festival can involve music, but also be so much more.
