LIBing The Dream!

Lightning in a Bottle, allowed! This past weekend was awesome, actually that is an understatement, it was epic! A long time in the making, we finally got out to one of the coolest festivals known as LIB {Lightning in a Bottle for the out of the loop folk}.

Just as the wristbands stated, it was legendary. The 5-day festival takes place on the grounds of Oak Canyon Ranch, overlooking the mountains and lake and is one of the most beautiful I have seen. It is split into two areas, the music and camping at the bottom of the hill, and the yoga zen-like vibe of the hilltop temple grounds.

Highlights included yoga with The Human Experience soundtracking, Om Shan Tea, too much music to pick a fav {Govinda, Shpongle, The Lucent Dossier Experience, EOTO, Big Gigantic to name a few}, raw food, awesome discussions, and a ton of new friends and perspectives to take back to the default world.

Legendary!

It is great to see their music spreading to new audiences and with a tour spreading its wings across the US over these next few months, this is not one to miss out on. Also to be noted is that Sidecar Tommy, beatmaker and co-producer/songwriter of Beats Antique will be at Lightning in a Bottle this year, stoked!

Feeling Kinda Irie (Caravan (Radikal Guru rmx) – Dreadsquad)


Dreadsquad was brought to us by a fellow festival attendee last weekend. Being reggae lovers here at AllowThat, we were a bit surprised that they had not been previously introduced our ears to them. While seemingly polar opposites, EDM and reggae music seem to share the very similar vibe through their community. As areas of dubstep begin to close the gap between these epic genres of music, remixes like this one from Radikal Guru show us just how throwing a little rastafarian twist into your next setlist could be just what the doctor ordered. A little reggae dub for your Tuesday and a sneak peek at Friday’s festivities…are you feeling irie?!

A Technical Submersion (The Sunken Bells of Ibiza (Original Mix) – Lissat & Voltaxx)


Summer sessions are heating up and for EDM this means only one thing….Ibiza. Lissat & Voltaxx, drop this tech-house gem on us and ring in the summer season right! Some say EDM shines in darkness, but it is hard to beat a summer beach party on the island of musical seduction!

Weekend Spotlight: Lucidity Festival (Live Oak Camp, Santa Barbara)


This week we wanted to highlight the birth of a new festival and a kickoff to your summer festival season. The Lucidity Festival has not only a stacked lineup of groovalicious musicians, but also has an abundance of fresh foods and workshops to keep your energy levels cruising. In its first year and with the support and hard work that has been put into it, this is not to be missed! It is always refreshing to get away from the rush of the week, and the Live Oak Camp with it’s nature-driven setting, should provide an epic weekend of creativity! Nab your ticket here, rally the troops and allow your mind to be blown. This is your festival, allow it!

From the site:
Lucidity is an open-source transformational arts and music festival. We call it open-source because we will be co-creating this festival experience with YOU! We invite you to come play with us, get involved with one of our six themed villages, bring art, lead a workshop, spark a spontaneous flash mob, embody a character from your dreams, be silly and wild and free! We are bringing together a world class lineup of musical talent and weaving them together with the sounds and vibrations of our beloved local stars. Our galleries will showcase the sickest fine art our region has to offer, promising to enrich the festival as a visual voyage. Art installations will pleasure participants with multi-sensory stimulation while themed environments will create intimate settings for personal connections. Lucidity’s environmental commitment is to leave Live Oak better than before.

When we become lucid in our dreams, we realize ourselves as infinite potential, we let go of fear, and we are free to create that which we want to see in the world. Bring those visions, those possibilities, and that delicious conscious energy with you to Lucidity and wake up in the dream.
