Lightning in a Bottle Moves to New Home:
Lake Skinner Park
Posted by: Y2
As you may have heard, Lightning in a Bottle is most definitely happening in 2013! Now that everything is confirmed, we’re bursting with excitement to say, LIB has a beautiful new home! The Lightning in a Bottle Festival will now be at the Lake Skinner Park in Temecula, California. LIB is also changing dates to July 11th – 15th.
We are so excited to invite you all to an even more beautiful location surrounded by a big blue lake, majestic Southern California mountains, and more lush green grass than ever before! Lake Skinner is a hidden gem of Southern California and we feel very lucky to call it our new home. Besides the beautiful views, the new location is more compact, so even though there is more open space, it’s all closer together and easier to navigate. It also features full RV hook-ups and a significantly more comfortable camping experience.
There will once again be 3 main stages along with the tons of smaller stages and interactive areas spread throughout the festival grounds for you to explore and discover. These smaller stages and interactive areas will keep the dancing and festivities going all night long after the main stages close each night. Also, to beat the heat, we have plenty of daytime water areas and features planned to keep you cool, just like our oasis stage at Coachella.
Farewell to Oak Canyon Park
Though we are excited about our new home and welcoming the change, we are sad to be leaving our wonderful home of the last three years, Oak Canyon Park. From the supportive team at Oak Canyon’s James Events Productions to the representatives of Irvine in the sheriff, fire and municipal departments, we have always been made to feel welcome in Silverado Canyon, and we would stay there if we could. However, Oak Canyon Park now falls under the jurisdiction of the Irvine Ranch Conservancy, which has declared that all music events in the Silverado Canyon area must end, and LIB is considered a music event by the conservancy. We have dealt with this change as quickly as we possibly could while still finding a new location that can provide the LIB experience we’ve all come to know and love. We feel great that Lake Skinner is that place, but were forced to select a new date for LIB, as Memorial Day weekend is not available, and the weekend of July 11th was the next available date. Summer here we come!
