Past Event
Produced by the Do LaB, best-known for their colorful Coachella stage, Lightning in a Bottle began as a small underground party for members of the Burning Man scene but has since grown into one of the biggest and best alternative-music festivals on the West Coast. Returning to the San Antonio Recreation Area in Monterey County for the fourth straight year, the 2017 incarnation of LIB features four stages; two bar areas with DJs; guest speakers and panels; yoga and meditation; cooking classes; burlesque shows and enough activities and sensory overload to keep attendees busy for its entire six-day duration (the event kicks off Wednesday, May 24). On the music front, the main draws are headliners Bassnectar, Bonobo and Richie Hawtin, but the lineup is stacked with talent, including future bass purveyors Paper Diamond and eDIT, Colombian psychedelic cumbia party-starters Bomba Estéreo, and the raw-nerve folk-rock of Thao & the Get Down Stay Down. Through Monday, May 29.
