We all know festivals are environments full of stimulation, where the party goes round the clock until the gates close Monday. There is so much fun to be had it can be a little overwhelming (how do you see two favorite artists on two different stages at the same time?!) After many years of attending festivals, I’ve learned that balance is important. Learning how to party is easy, learning how to party for an entire weekend or more takes some practice. You can go much harder for much longer if you take care of yourself throughout the process.
It’s summer: you’re coasting along the highway – a sweetly rumbling engine and good tunes in your ear, the summer wind on your face. Imagine spending an entire summer in nature, living simply, constantly seeing new things and meeting new people, and consistently being surrounded by incredible music and art. You’ll spend weeks in environments that encourage free self expression, where you can indulge in the luxury of being your truest self. This is the appeal of a nomad summer spent road-tripping from festival to festival.
Adventures are magical things that leave you changed forever; they take you outside of your comfort zone and teach you things about yourself that you might never have otherwise discovered. Through this lifestyle you start to remember what’s really important in life, what’s important to you.

Lightning In A Bottle is like most modern day fests, packed with great music, live art, workshops on topics of every kind, this year an array of activities for teens (cheers to that!), a lake to swim in, healthful foodie delights including a special Bruch Royale, and so much more. But this year thats not ALL!
