Lightning In A Bottle in Bradley, California is widely regarded as one of the most spiritual and true festivals still out there. They boast a ‘free water‘ initiative which gives every person that attends free water for the duration of the festival if you have your own reusable container in order to reduce the amount of waste generated by the festival (They do have re-usable water bottles you can buy on site and ask that you don’t bring plastic water bottles.) Lightning in a Bottle is truly about freedom, spiritual enlightenment and respect. They put a ban on the wearing of Native American Headdresses to avoid disrespecting of the Native American people, a subject where they speak extensively on their info tab.
It is not just a music festival about seeing great music for a few days, they truly preach about leaving the festival a more knowledged and more connected person via their centerpiece, The Lucent Temple of Consciousness.
The Lucent Temple of Consciousness, in the heart of the festival, is the place to get inspired by world renown visionaries, wisdom keepers, master teachers, healers, activists, performers, and musicians. Absolutely everything The Temple offers is designed to activate your body, expand your mind and open your heart.
The Temple is a sacred refuge, devoted to deepening our understanding of self, science, ecology and phenomena as well as honoring our connection to spirit, to mother earth, to our brothers and sisters and to all our relations. We invite you to take part in lighting the collective fire of transformation to become the positive change makers we seek to be. – Lightning In A Bottle
