Lightning in a Bottle 2013: New Location, New Dates Announced
|Lake Skinner County Park|
Lake Skinner, which also hosts the annual Temecula Balloon & Wine Festival, offers the same camping opportunities as Oak Canyon Park, with more facilities, flat area, trees and grass than the previous location. The new space is almost entirely on a peninsula and provides the same privacy and natural setting as Oak Canyon. "Normally with a change like this there's a lot of compromise and the sacrifice of some of our standards," Flemming says. "We don't feel like that's happening at all. It's really going to be a more comfortable experience all around.
Lake Skinner also offers increased capacity; the Board approved attendance of 15,000 for this year's festival. "We've always had an eye out for a next venue because we hit capacity at Oak Canyon," Flemming says. "We were planning on doing a couple more years there, but because that situation changed we were able to find a newer, better place sooner than we thought we had to. We're excited to hopefully make Lake Skinner a long term home for Lightning in a Bottle."
The DoLab will now move forward with booking artists and workshops for the yoga, sustainability, art, and electronic music-focused event. "This is a pretty exciting day," Flemming said shortly after hearing the Board's decision. "We were afraid to start creating the festival before we got approval, and even though we're sad to leave a very welcoming Oak Canyon Park, we're thrilled and excited to have this new home."
