Lightning in a Bottle (LIB) is a music festival in the Central Coast region of California first held in 2006. It is presented by The Do LaB. The Do LaB seeks to promote sustainability, social cohesion, personal health, and creative expression. They have also contributed art installations to the Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival in Indio, California. Lightning in a Bottle is one of the largest and most influential of a new kind of transformational festivals described as slightly smaller and centered around psychedelic art, electronic dance music, ecological sustainability, community building, workshops and yoga.
Lightning in a Bottle took their name from a private birthday party in 2000. From 2000 to 2003, the birthday celebration recurred each July as a private event. In 2004 Lightning in a Bottle Music and Art Festival was born.
In 2004, the event's co-founders and producers, who now called themselves The Do LaB, hosted Lightning in a Bottle at Gold Creek Ranch in the Angeles National Forest. After a one-year hiatus, they revived the festival in July 2006 at Live Oak Camp in Santa Barbara, California, and returned each May thereafter through 2008. However, after this eighth festival The Do LaB decided to relocate Lightning in a Bottle to accommodate the increasing attendance. Another one-year hiatus passed, and in 2010 they brought the festival to Oak Canyon Ranch in Silverado, California. In 2013, the event was moved to Lake Skinner in Winchester, California. For the first time, the event has been relocated outside of Southern California, with the 2014 festival taking place at San Antonio Reservoir Recreation Area in Bradley. in the following years of 2015 and 2016, the attendees returned to San Antonio Reservoir Recreation Area in Bradley, California. During the 2017 event, twenty-year-old Baylee Gatlin died after being taken to the hospital from the festival.
About the festival

There are many opportunities available for volunteering at the event such as participating as a performing artist in the DoArt Foundation's Lightning in a Paintcan, known as the biggest live painting event in the United States.
Lightning in a Bottle is the only United States festival to win the "Outstanding Award" from A Greener Festival, five years in a row.
