As I sit here 2 weeks out, wristband still attached, I can only smile and think about how amazing it is that events like LIB exist. What The Do Lab provided was much more than a music festival. Of course with entertainment provided by the likes of Pretty Lights, Lucent Dossier Experience, Bonobo, DJ John Kelley, Emancipator, Lynx, and Inspired Flight, you’re bound to have quite the musical journey (*cough Woogie Stage ftw!). But what you hardly ever get at music shows are the interactions and connections with the people around you! There are some amazing people who attend these events, and the life journeys and stories you’ll come across will blow your mind. I mean, you don’t often get to strike up a chat with Maurice, 32 yr old hippie from SF, and Heidi, 63 yr old parent of 5 from Carlsbad, all under the LED glow of the Bamboo Stage…respect.
What makes LIB so marvelous is how promoting it is of community. It shows you that a society founded on good will and open hearts not only exists, but flourishes. It is this openness of interaction and sharing that truly made me appreciate my 24-hour experience. Just check these out and catch my drift:

Been patiently waiting for 12FV’s take on his experience, and finally they’ve arrived!
From art installations to yoga sessions, DJs to guest speakers, “music” festival really doesn’t do LIB justice. It being centered around the ideals of sustainability, positivity, and healthy living, combined with beautiful people and non-stop dancing, almost makes me want to call it a “celebration of life” festival haha. I must say however, Lightning In A Bottle captures it quite perfectly.
And finally, big ups to The Do Lab for blessing us with their hard work and passion for art! Got our first taste of their “doing” at Coachella 2010, and now with this weekend, safe to say we are definitely looking forward to what the future holds for this collective. Stay up to date on their upcoming events here! Please keep doing what you do, we’re lovin’ it!!
Until next time…
May we give and receive, sharing our good fortune - believing that there is more than enough for everyone.
