For many, electronic dance music is more than just a soundtrack to party, it’s a soundtrack to a healthy, active lifestyle. Testament to this are the growing number of electronic music festivals that have added wellness and health components to the their already robust experience.
One of these festivals is Lightning In a Bottle, which in 2014 has moved locations to Bradley, California. In addition to a cutting edge electronic music lineup, LiB also includes the Lucent Temple of Consciousness and with dedicated, unique programming.
The Lucent Temple Of Consciousness has its own unique audio experience, featuring world, devotional, and calming live music offering a soundtrack to the journeys within. Over 20 artists will be performing World Temple Music between classes and speakers, encompassing indigenous sounds from cultures around the world. The 2014 schedule inside the Lucent Temple, built out of recycled and found objects, will include over 300 different experiences in yoga, workshops, speakers and exotic world music.
A highlight of this unique Lightning In A Bottle experience is the recently announced yoga lineup. This year will see yogis like Radha & Govind Das, Joan Hyman, Tony Giulano, Kishan Shah, Gigi Snyder and The Human Experience, and more teaching classes, meshed to their own, unique soundtracks.
Yoga classes are scheduled from morning until evening throughout the weekend. All experience levels and Yoga styles will be on offer from high energy Vinyasa to relaxing classes integrating meditation. Some of the top yoga teachers are joining LIB this year, and many will be accompanied by live musicians.
Because this is such a spiritual festival, the organizers encourage all to participate in the yoga and meditation experience offered. This provides a holistic approach to music festivals rarely seen in some of the more commercialized events.
This year’s festival is taking place Memorial Day Weekend (May 22-26th) at the San Antonio Recreation Area in Bradley, CA. For more information and tickets, please visit Lightning In A Bottle’s website here.
