Your Lightning In A Bottle Festival Guide
Some know it as the anti-Coachella or as Billboard calls it: the yoga and campout music festival, but LIB is much more. This is one of those musical festivals that actually cares about the music and presenting a sustainable, environmental mindful way of living and enjoying live music. The bands playing might not be major headliners, but with the likes of Grimes, Cashmere Cat and Chet Faker showing up it is sure to be an enlightening experience. This is the first time the up and coming festival has sold out before the gates open today.
