Lightning in a BottleLake Skinner County Park
37701 Warren Rd, Winchester, CA
With the continued evolution of über-large weekend-music fests, Lightning in a Bottle is remarkable for its strong bent on sustainability and mindful practices. There's a wide reach and diverse scope of music and modern-day ceremony, including many unique experiences such as a tea temple and massive outdoor yoga classes. You never come back the same, no matter how many times you make the pilgrimage. There are talks, pop-up shows, real-time painters and artists, and vegetarian food served on biodegradable dinnerware. As for lodging options, consider camping at Lake Skinner to complete your Earthly re-birthing. In the proverbial Age of Aquarius, you do not just attend this festival — you alight in a full-fledged paradigm shifting vortex.
