Lightning In A Bottle Festival 2010 will be May 28 - 31 at Oak Canyon Ranch in Irvine, California



The Lightning In A Bottle Festival has announced their 2010 dates and lineup.

This Memorial Day weekend, the music, arts and green living worlds will converge at Oak Canyon Ranch in Irvine, California, for The Do LaB's 5th annual Lightning in a Bottle Festival on May 28 – 31, 2010. Celebrated for their one-of-a-kind interactive art environments, The Do LaB will bring its signature imaginative experience design stamp, as seen at festivals all over the world such as Coachella and Virgin Music Festival.

The new site of the four-day, three-night festival for all ages features over 100 acres of sprawling hills, lush trees and a tranquil reservoir, and accommodates up to 6,000 day guests and overnight campers combined. Oak Canyon Ranch is located just one hour south of Los Angeles and 45 minutes north of San Diego.

With a lineup that is equal parts music, art and green workshops, Lightning in a Bottle will envelop its guests in a myriad of activities throughout the festival. Three-day passes are available at this time to encourage a sense of community among all of the artists, musicians, performers, friends and families. Tickets can be purchased in advance starting at $190 online by clicking here.

The lineup is pretty damn amazing if you are a fan of electronic music. The variety and quality of the artists is stellar and includes John Tejada, Apparat, Booka Shade, David Starfire, Lee Burridge, March Fourth Marching Band, Nosaj Thing, Beats Antique, Kraddy, MartyParty, Sandra Collins, Vokab Kompany, Random Rab, DJ Garth, Daedelus and many more.

Pocket Underground is proud to be a part of Lightning in a bottle and continues to push the Woogie sound outside of the event through the "Woogie Nights" events in LA and SF.

We have a bunch of remixes, live recordings, and artist information on our site.
