Why you should plan now for LIB 2018

Lightning in a bottle promises a good time but that isn’t a reason to start planing now. A lot of music festivals promise a good time but Lightning in a bottle is starting to truly set themselves apart from the pack. They are one of the very few music fests that are already promoting their 2018 festival.

The first reason to start planning for LIB 2018 is that they have already started running ticket sales and if you want the best discount on ticket prices then buy early. They recently ran a super early bird sale and will probably gear up for another early ticket sale. If you prepare now you will have the money. Not to mention it is definitely easier to commit to a music festival when you already have the tickets!

Another good reason to plan now is LIB has been hosted in Bradley, California for three years running. If you are like me and located in Northwest Indiana then having the time to plan a cross county trip is definitely a necessity. Unless you plan on flying with all your camping gear then a road trip is required and no one wants to miss the opportunities to see the country because they didn’t plan properly for a road trip. Who wants to stop in Vegas on the way!

LIB is super organized when it comes to music festivals so it is something you can follow and plan around easily. You can always follow their blog Here and keep up to date on all the important issues. They have a killer website (lightninginabottle.org) which list some awesome activities you can check out all their activities at the bottom of their page.

Plan now. If you don’t plan now you are planing to fail! Live your life because you only get one so make sure you have made it a memorable experience! Music festivals do not need to be a one time experience. You never know when you will meet someone who changes your life, experience, thoughts, and opinions.


Checklist for Camping at a Music Festival

Of course, we have all done it before. You’re all excited, packing the car for the music festival you have been planning for a month. So you think you have everything ready and just toss it all in the car. Then you arrive and your unpacking when, BAM you forgot the connector for your propane stove! What happened? You remember packing it last week!

Take a load off because I’m here to  make your life a tad easier. I have created a downloadable, printable checklist for FREE! Now just check it off the list and relax some, you can download the .pfd check list HERE.  Now, This begins the debate on what materials are best for a festival but I like to maintain that everyone’s preferences are different. So adapt and adjust accordingly.

My have to have no matter what equipment though is all based around the comfort of my small community space. I like to chill with friends. We like to set up three tents around the outside of our canopy tent and use the canopy as like a communal stomping grounds where everyone chills. Honestly, this is how you meet the best people at festivals! Ya never know who you will jive with but what you need is a great place to chill. I set up an inflatable couch to chill on. They are cheap and save space while packing. Not to mention they are extremely comfortable when covered is massive amounts of blankets and pillows! This is the one I use. http://amzn.to/2vPSUno.

No matter what you decide I hope our checklist helps you out! Have a great time at your next festival and as always, stay safe.
