Lightning in a Bottle Bids Adieu to Bradley, California

San Antonio Recreation Area will no longer be home to the Flemming brothers’ birthday party-turned festival.

Today, L.A.-based Coachella stage craftsmen and festival producers Do LaB announced the paragon of woke festival culture, Lightning in a Bottle (LIB), is moving again. With plans to remain in Central California while adjusting both their location in Bradley and the conveniently calendared Memorial Day Weekend, the departure marks the fifth time the Flemming brothers’ birthday party-turned festival has relocated to a new place.   

Following the dreadful 2017 attendee death and following lawsuit, yet the following attendee death by ‘freak mishap ’ in 2018, along with an announcement just weeks ago they would reduce the size of the occasion by 25%, LIB’s future could have appeared unclear to the casual viewer. According to the announcement that went out now, however, it was the closing of the Monterey County Parks Department along with a string of demands presented with new leadership at the absorbing Resource Management Agency who made remaining in Bradley hopeless. 

For those acquainted with all the culture or the fervor with which West Coasters espouse Do LaB, it must really come as no surprise the LIB is evolving. The way it will return at the still unannounced new location is predicted to influence the festival year in 2019 and in years ahead. 

“If that news comes as a shock, we apologize,” The LIB Marketing Team wrote in the announcement. “Venue challenges are an unavoidable part of throwing festivals, and also the way we can do is move through them as quickly as you can.”

Early bird tickets will be announced in the coming two to three months along with also the festival lineup is supposed to drop in February. Experts at Do LaB were unavailable for comment but additional information will be announced through the Do LaB site, Facebook page and also the LIB newsletter. Naturally, will soon be present to keep step with the beats as upgrades become available. 

New dates for Lightning in a Bottle 2019 are set for May 8th to May 13th.
