Have you ever wondered what it would be like to have the time of your life for several days straight, but instead of being exhausted and depleted of nutrients when it’s time to go back to work after the weekend your body is well nourished and more energized than ever? At LIB, we’re making moves to make this dream reality with three farm-to-table food fantasies from sustainable sourcing experts and top chefs at Dub Gypsy Kitchen, The Rancho, and The Last Supper Club.

Can’t bring farm fresh produce or locally sourced free-range meat in your cooler? We’ve got you covered. With a few clicks, you can indulge in professional grade dining options and taste magic prepared by culinary wizards with techniques and ingredients from all over the world.

Are you looking to skip shopping, cooking, and cleaning? Maybe you’d rather just leave the camp kitchen at home? Are you hoping to make new friends who share your commitment to eating well at the festival? LIB has options to make it easy, so prepare to experience the nutritional upgrade you’ve hungered for.
