At Lightning in a Bottle, the sky is truly the limit when it comes to what you can learn and experience!
From cooking classes and art workshops to speaker sessions, Lightning in a Bottle offers much more than incredible music. The festival grounds stay completely open during the day, so you’re welcome to romp around and explore in the daylight, checking out the various workshops and activities put on by the festival and partnering organizations.
While raging the night away is always an amazing time, being able to wake up, rejuvenate with a yoga class, grab an acai bowl, and attend a speaker session all before starting the festivities again is what makes LiB so special.

So far, the festival has announced its live painting lineup, art classes, learning kitchen lineup, content partners, and yoga & movement lineup!
