Lightning in a Bottle’s Lucent Temple of Consciousness Creates an Oasis of Explorative Learning; Traditional Education Should Take Note
The state of education in America is a sore subject for many. Pathetic public investment in grade schools plus steadily increasing costs of higher education combine to make America one of the poorer performing Western countries when it comes to education. New models for education are springing up around the country, and while I’m not saying that music festivals may be the answer to our country’s education woes, I am convinced that progressive festivals like Lightning in a Bottle, which has dedicated half of its offerings to conscious, community oriented education, hold some of the answers to making learning fun...
Festifull of Love: Lightning in a Bottle gives the biggest bang for a fest-goers buck!
Let’s face it. Going to festivals ain’t cheap. Maybe the ticket price is reasonable, but perhaps you have to fly, or drive states away to get there.

Casting Spells for a Living: An Interview with Random Rab
I first convened with Random Rab’s elegant sound waves at Lightning in a Bottle 2011; it was here, also, that I was privy to his mesmerizing stage setup, better known as the Infinidroid, (please see videos below) which was co created with Android Jones . To me, Random Rab is like a gentle warm tear rolling slowly down your cheek when you’ve found yourself in the purest of all moments. The release of his latest album, “Visurreal,” has been a powerful musical presence in my life and is a gift to the ears of any listener. Through this interview I...
Lightning in a Bottle: Life Changing in a Weekend
To start this fairy tale off appropriately, I’d have to begin by shouting out the biggest THANK YOU ever to the “Do Lab” and recognize them for their superior hard work and heartfelt dedication. Thank you to everyone who took part in making my first Lightning in a Bottle experience the most successful and luxurious festival of my years. Never in my life have I felt so blessed to be part of something so thoughtfully beautiful and conscious. By the law of attraction, Lightning in a Bottle and I were meant to be together. At a dull point in my...
