Transform your experience at Lightning in a Bottle and look into this year’s lineup for Learning & Culture at The Compass! 


There is no doubt the music at Lightning in Bottle fuels a large part of the experience, but diving deeper into the educational aspects can provide enriching, nourishing perspectives you didn’t know you needed. The Compass is the educational heart of Lightning in a Bottle and will host a variety of speakers and workshops over the weekend.

Their mission is to create experiences that carry themselves beyond the festival. Reflecting on my first LiB this is the reason I fell in love with the festival. I was glowing with gratitude from all the impactful words I heard from speakers and workshops. Take a break from the music and be sure to immerse yourself in all aspects that make Lightning in a Bottle so beautiful.

As Lightning in a Bottle opens a new chapter embodying the new 6 Ways of LiB: Celebrate Life, Create Community, Respect Yourself And One Another, Actively Participate, Honor The Land, and Be A Citizen there will be no better place to put them into practice than The Compass. Speakers include author and scientist Dr. Vindana Shiva and Mycologist Paul Stamets and workshops will range from Daily Water Blessings and Sunset Fire Gratitudes to Sound Healing and Self Love Rituals For Women.

Although his first live show was underground hip-hop, he began listening to a variety of different genres and found his niche within electronic community. After attending more concerts and festivals, Zachary was seeking out a platform that would allow him to express his passion and love for live music and share it with friends, family, and the world. Having always been an avid writer he began to combine the two arts and shortly after writing his first article Zachary became part of the EDM Identity team in August 2015.
