The Do LaB has just announced that Lightning in a Bottle, California’s premiere transformational boutique music and arts festival, will take place over Memorial Day Weekend (May 21st – 25th) at San Antonio Recreation Area in Bradley, CA for its ten year anniversary.
After what many are calling the best year in the festival’s lifespan in 2014, The Do LaB is excited to return to the beautiful San Antonio Recreation Area. The last two LIBs have been held in new locations, so The Do LaB is excited about returning to the same location, which will allow them to build and improve off of last year’s efforts.
Tickets go on sale on Monday, January 5th at 10AM for the Rush-n-Get-Em 24-hour ticket window starting at $235 for the full weekend pass. Up-And-At-Em tickets go on sale the day after for $260. Purchasing tickets now is the best way to secure one of the limited car camping, boutique camping or lightning bus spots.
The Do LaB is excited for what promises to be an amazing 10th year of existence. Just last week, it was announced that IS050 (Scott Hansen of Tycho) will be the lead visual designer for LiB 2015. ISO50 will have his clean, colorful touch on everything from the website to the lineup flyer.
Lightning in a Bottle just released their first image from IS050, who was given a blank canvas to showcase his unique design style and preview what is to come for next year’s festival. IS050’s design was built off a photo from photographer and friend Daniel Zetterstrom, whose photo was selected for its focus on individual experiences within a communal setting that has come to embody LiB. Also, the water pail that one of the characters is holding signifies the festival’s connection to the environment and its role to improve/educate California amid the drought.
ISO50 also produces music under the name Tycho, creating dreamy atmospheric music that has garnered admiration from music critics and fans across the globe, highlighted by the release of one of 2014’s most standout albums, “Awake.”
The Do LaB has been a fan of Scott Hansen’s work, both musically and visually, for years and after performing at LiB as Tycho for the first time in 2013 Hansen immediately fell in love with the festival. In his own words:
“A lot of my friends have been going to LIB for years and I’ve always wanted to go. When we finally got a chance to play the festival I immediately felt a sense of community that was very inspiring. When LIB contacted me about designing some images for them it seemed like a perfect opportunity to apply the aesthetic I’ve been developing for Tycho to a physical space. I was really inspired by the images my friend, photographer Daniel Zetterstrom, had captured of the event the year prior and set about incorporating them into a sort of idealized vision of what a gathering of people around art and music could be. I tried to create images that felt less literal and more like the memories people would take away from the event.”
