EXCLUSIVE: Lightning in a Bottle's COMPLETE Lineup
Christopher Victorio/OC Weekly
Oak Canyon Ranch's Lightning in a Bottle festival, the 10-year-old music and wellness festival that takes place on May 24-28 in Silverado, released their full musical lineup last March. And while the festival is a musical experience quite unlike any other, what really sets it apart are its intangibles like the Lucent Temple of Consciousness.
Built out of recycled and found objects and set on a cliff overlooking the whole fest, the Temple is the perfect place to stretch your body and your mind in new ways. Over the weekend it offers over 300 different experiences in yoga, workshops, speakers and exotic world music. Temple organizer Dream gives her thoughts on what people should know about this experience. (Also, full festival lineup after the jump!)
Dream says, "We are at the dawn of new humanity. We are the bringers of the dawn. Thus we are seeking the valuable information that will move us forward in our journey here on earth. Maybe we want to learn about edible forestry, or permaculture. Maybe it's the cosmos that draw our attention, maybe we seek a deeper connection with beings from other galaxies. Maybe we just want to learn how to make raw chocolate, or beer. Whatever your interest, the Lucent Temple is the perfect place to experience the beyond. So join us at the top of the mountain where the sun shines through the trees, a warm breeze fills the air and the awakening of the body and soul is on the menu."
