I think we speak for everyone when we say – we CANNOT wait to return home to Lightning in a Bottle. Just a few days ago, the Kern County, California-based festival dropped their 2022 lineup. And yes, it’s just as perfect as we imagined it to be.
A few weeks ago, we got our first information of 2022’s installment and post-COVID return of LIB as they announced their festival theme for next year, where lightning strikes. They described this feeling as seeing a friend you haven’t connected with in a while or when you cross paths with a new lover. It’s that magic, that lightning. It’s hard to deny. To anyone that’s had the honor of attending past years of LIB, you know being there feels like a lightning strike from within. A spark that lights a flame inside you – it’s magic.
This is what lightning sounds like
Lightning in a Bottle holds nothing back with their 2022 lineup. Offering the perfect blend of different vibes and genres that somehow fit together like the last piece in a puzzle. The Lightning Stage will be blessed with Glass Animals, Kaytranada, GRiZ, Chet Faker, SG Louis, and Purity Ring. The Thunder Stage features CloZee, G Jones B2B Eprom, Of The Trees, Player Dave, and Ivy Lab. It doesn’t stop there, though. The Woogie Stage gets to experience performances from Four Tet, VNSSA, Black Coffee, Eli & Fur, plus so much more talent sprinkled across the whole lineup. Reading through this felt like I was reading through my liked artists on Spotify
Needless to say, you’ll want to secure tickets to this with the quickness. Pre-sale started today, and general on-sale is tomorrow at 10 AM PST. Words can’t describe how we feel about returning to LIB. We’ll see you guys at Buena Vista Lake next May 25th-30th for a reality escape of epic proportions!

November recognizes Native American Heritage Month. Since the first Europeans set foot in North America, Native Americans endured innumerable atrocities. From the genocide during colonization to the continued destruction of the land stolen from them. Native Americans face oppression to this day, as well as ongoing disrespect to places and practices that are sacred to their culture. Learn about the historical and modern issues Indigenous Americans face on the Native American Rights Fund website.
