Purity Ring Added to Lineup!
Posted by: Y2
We are happy to announce a big new addition to the Lightning in a Bottle lineup – Purity Ring! Comprised of vocalist Megan James and percussionist Corin Roddick, the experimental electronic pop act’s debut album Shrines was released to critical acclaim last year, and their innovative live setup, in which Roddick plays a custom-built tree-shaped instrument that drives both live sound and lighting, has been mesmerizing audiences and selling out theaters across the country. They will be an amazing experience on the main stage this year, and we can’t wait to enjoy it with y’all!!
Check out their recent interview with Pitchfork below:

Lightning in a Bottle is not just an art and music festival. LIB is really about being a catalyst for change; for triggering transformation in peoples lives so that we all may have a more positive impact on the world. For 5 days of magic we gather together to create, celebrate, smile, and love in a space that elevates the connection and wonder our everyday world often lacks. And we’ve heard many stories now about how the space Lightning in a Bottle creates changes peoples’ lives in beautiful and powerful ways.
We have heard stories about people meeting, falling in love, and getting married. People discovering the creative spark to leave a corporate career and embark on a life the produces sustenance from art and independence. Or people finding creative partners for new endeavors that take them on journeys they never thought possible. Transformation. From the normal to the beautiful. From the broken to the mended. From the dull to the shining brightness of a new dawn.
We’ve heard many of these stories, but we want more people to hear them. We want these stories to wake people up to what’s possible when we take a chance and believe in ourselves and each other. Please tell these stories to the world! Share your stories of love, creativity discovered, and positive transformation catalyzed. This is why Lightning in a Bottle exists. This is the crazy spark of electricity we are always trying to capture for a weekend and share with the world.
We want to hear your story. The world wants to hear your story. It can be a written story, a short video, a painting, a photo essay – however you feel best expresses the story of transformation you need to tell. We will read all your stories, share them, and every 2 weeks through May, select a story to be featured on the LIB website. All featured stories will receive 2 full weekend passes to this year’s festival. That’s 4 chances to win! So tell us your LIB story and tell it beautifully. Share it in a way that inspires and connects us all to that powerful spirit of positive change within us all!

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!
