The Do LaB 's reality-expanding 6th annual Lightning in a Bottle Festival.
Building on the success of last year’s event which drew over 7,000 attendees, the four day, three night festival will once again be held on 100 sprawling acres of hills, trees and reservoirs at beautiful Oak Canyon Ranch, located just one hour south of Los Angeles and 45 minutes north of San Diego.

Lightning in a Bottle, which has been described in the press as an enlightened cross between
Coachella and Burning Man, was recently named a recipient of the prestigious European Festival Awards’ Outstanding Greener Festival Award.

Lightning in a Bottle , the one-part electro-tastic, one-part environmentally friendly California music festival, returns for its sixth incarnation May 27-30 on the 100 sprawling acres of hills, trees and reservoirs at Silverado’s Oak Canyon Ranch. Presented by The Do LaB , the festival will look to build on the success of last year’s event — which drew over 7,000 attendees — with a 2011 bill topped by Pretty Lights and a Thievery Corporation DJ set. Other confirmed heavyweights include Lucent Dossier Experience, Bonobo (DJ Set), Beats Antique, Claude VonStroke, MiM0SA, Nick Warren, Random Rab and the Infinidroid, Eskmo, PANTyRAiD, Baths, Fools Gold, Emancipator, Lee Burridge, Y La Bamba and many others. 

In addition to the music, this year’s Lightning in a Bottle will also feature green living workshops, providing easy, Do-It-Yourself lessons on creating a healthy, low-cost, sustainable lifestyle, organic food vendors, and yoga and dance classes taught by industry leaders. Plus, there will be large scale art installations, children’s activities, live performance troupes and Lightning in a Paintcan, where local artists transform over- sized mural panels into paintings which are then sold in a silent auction with the proceeds benefiting The Do LaB’s brand new non-profit organization, DoArt Foundation. The Foundation is a social enterprise dedicated to developing artist-audience relationships throughout local and international communities.
One-day, two-day, and three-day passes are now available and can be purchased via the festival’s website .

THE STORY

Our story picks up where Don Quixote left off, but in the parallel universe of the Red Nose.With the passing of Juan Dickote, former semi-pro knight errant and pseudo-employer of our hero, Pancho Sanza. With Dickote’s death, Pancho finds himself loosed of his proverbial subservient shackles, freed to roam the planet under clear skies once again.

But the gawds aren’t done with him yet. Will he rise to the occasion and gain his long-sought glory, or forever be doomed to a life of mediocrity and antagonism? Show up to find out, and to help Pancho find his saving grace – or
