WANT A LIGHTNING BUS TO AND FROM YOUR CITY?  If you can organize 15 or more bus riders from you city, we can help arrange a bus. Contact lightningbus@thedolab.com Would you like to get reimbursed for your Bus ticket? We are currently looking for one responsible volunteer from each city per day to serve as a bus manager. This person will be responsible for keeping tally of who makes it onto the bus, as well as arriving early to meet the bus. The qualifying volunteers will have their bus ticket reimbursed. If you are interested please email meg@thedolab.com. Here’s some important info to help you keep your stuff compact, manage your waste, and be environmentally friendly while doing it:

  • Depackage all your food and products before you come – saves space, reduces waste!

  • Bring 3 different bags to sort your Recycling, Landfill, and Compost waste in your camp.  A bucket with a lid for compost would be best.  This is important because:

  • As a bus rider you have special privileges to leave your waste at LIB rather than taking it home on the bus.  **With your bus confirmation in hand** you will be allowed entrance to the dumpster area to dump your waste.  It MUST be sorted properly in order to go in the dumpsters!!  Sorting guidelines are below, and will be readily available for you at the event in your festival booklet.

  • Remember to bring your own water container, utensils, plates, etc.  Free filtered water will be available, no need to pack plastic bottled water as long as you have a container.  You can also be super eco and use your own reusable plates and cups in the food vending area as well as your camp.
