Lightning in a Bottle 2013: New Location, New Dates Announced

LakePano: Lightning in a Bottle 2013: New Location, New Dates Announced

Annual music and arts festival Lightning in a Bottle is relocating to Riverside County this summer, West Coast Sound can exclusively report. In a vote yesterday, the Riverside County board of supervisors approved the application to hold Lightning in a Bottle 2013 at Lake Skinner County Park. The four day festival, which has taken place at Orange County’s Oak Canyon Park since 2009, was forced to find a new home due to zoning changes at that location.

Dede Flemming, co-founder of the DoLab, the production company behind Lightning in a Bottle, said the group was notified in September that Oak Canyon would no longer be able to host the event. The land that borders the park was recently donated to the Irvine Ranch Conservancy. Because the park, and specifically the onsite Irvine Lake, now border Conservancy-owned land, all large-scale music festivals there have been forced out.

“It wasn’t that Lightning in a Bottle was asked to leave,” Flemming says. “It was that all music events down there are coming to a halt.”

After a period of being “upset and a little freaked out,” DoLab organizers began searching for a new home. They subsequently discovered Lake Skinner, located in the Riverside county town of Winchester, near Temecula and 90 miles southeast of Los Angeles.

“Our relationship with the managers of [Oak Canyon Park] is still really strong,” Flemming says. “[The owner of that space] helped us find the new location.” The Orange County Sheriff”s Office and Fire Department provided letters of support for the DoLab’s four month campaign to secure the spot. “There’s no bad blood between anyone; we just had to move on.”

Previously held on Memorial Day weekend, the festival will have new dates because of the move.

Skinner Land: Lightning in a Bottle 2013: New Location, New Dates Announced

Lightning in a Bottle 2013 will take place July 11-15. A 48 hour ticket presale begins at 10am on Tuesday, February 12 at the event’s website.

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.”

COMMUNITY: JES Announces Second Single “Before You Go” With Andy Duguid, To Be Released Worldwide Sept 17th

JES Announces Second Single "Before You Go" With Andy Duguid, To Be Released Worldwide Sept 17th

LOS ANGELES – Aug. 28, 2012 There’s one journey that unites everyone in the world, the desire to feel connected. The search to find one’s destiny and be set free is fueled through JES’ brand new single “Before You Go” off her mix album Unleash the Beat. The new song, to be released by Black Hole Recordings through Magik Muzik Imprint and Ultra Records on Sept. 17th, brings together JES andEurope’s most sought-after beat maker, Andy Duguid for the very first time.

Sneak Peek Promo Commercial Link:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8neqDZHTjfA

(Remix Preview and Itunes Pre-Order Links will go live on Aug 31st)


JES is the chart-topping, award-winning artist who has packed four albums and two Billboard #1 singles into five short years as a solo artist while touring internationally and collaborating with countless superstar DJ’s and producers like Tiësto, Armin Van Buuren, Kaskade, BT, Richard Durand and Cosmic Gate. Her new single, takes quiet instances contained in the chaos of life, and sums up every “what might have been?” moment and sets it to a contagious electronic opus made by Andy.

“I’m obsessed with every facet of city living, and what inspired me to write “Before You Go” are the ‘what if?’ daydreams we all have in those idle moments” says JES. “Those short fantasies, just imagining that everything could change with one glance across a crowded subway car or a stolen conversation in a coffee bar.”

After creating the lyrics, JES sought out someone who could design the sound that fit her vision. The EMD heavyweight found her match in skilled Scottman, Andy Duguid. The original pairing creates a magnetic force on the track.

“I had written the song and I was really happy with my vocals but when I sent it out to some producers I wasn’t inspired by what was coming back. I just knew when I heard Andy’s first draft, that he totally got the song and found the perfect sonority for it right away” says JES.

JES’s dynamic vocals fused with Andy’s electric sound brings a pulsing urgency to the single. Andy’s original mix and radio edit keep the prog wheels turning with a vocal heavy arrangement that is as melodically satisfying as it is rhythmically inspired by JES’s lyrics.

A super strong remix package features a trademark Taxigirl Edit and Mike Saint Jules reinvents the song with his signature sound of effect laden power-trance. Pedro Del Mar rips up the dance floor with a classic high intensity emo trance remix that will keep hands in the air from start to finish. Tech lovers will choose Re-Zone’s sparse but inventive techno infused offering that keeps the drops coming. Timothy Allen & Loverush take dance floors by force with their disco tinged prog house mix that lays screaming lead lines against deep chords and a pounding beat that just won’t stop. It won’t be long before “Before You Go” will hit the world’s dance floors with a bang.

About JES:

JES has collected awards from the prestigious International Dance Music Awards at Miami’s WMC, the ISC (International Songwriting Competition 2008, 2009 and 2010) and topped Billboard’s “Most Played Dance Songs of the Decade” chart (2000-2010). Her most recent album release is “Unleash The Beat” and includes the radio hits “Awaken” and ”Every Other Way” (with BT).  “Awaken”, a single from last year’s album “High Glow” (Ultra Music / Magik Musik) has also been a staple of dance music radio’s daytime play lists. Unstoppably staying on top of the game, JES now presents her brand new collaboration with Scotsman Andy Duguid.

About ANDY:

Things may have been a bit silent on the Andy Duguid front, but behind the scenes he has been working very hard. Andy, who regularly performs as a DJ, has been in his studio for quite some time to work on new tracks, countless remixes and a new artist album. Andy made one thing perfectly clear wit his latest singles “I Want To Believe” (with Shannon Hurley) and “Music Box” (with Lizzie Curious) and that is that sound has evolved and grown. With the anthems “Don’t Belong” and “Wasted”, which both featured on Tiësto’s In Search of Sunrise series in his pocket, Andy built a rock solid reputation and so far released his album “Believe” and the mix compilation “Miracle Moments”. Regularly touring the globe to deliver his highly acclaimed live sets, Andy now once again confirms his status as a top producer with this fabulous new collaboration with Queen of Rocktronica, JES.
