Lightning in a Bottle
Unfortunately, California music festival Lightning in a Bottle will not take place this year due to the Coronavirus. They’ve shared out an official announcement about its cancellation. This event was expected to take place this May during Memorial Day Weekend. However, due to the uncertain future in regards to the virus, the festival has taken early precautions. According to their statement, “The health and safety of our attendees, our amazing staff, crew, vendors, artists, and supporters is priority number one. In light of all this, it has become clear that putting on the festival in May is not currently possible.”
Truthfully, the future of Lightning in a Bottle is now uncertain. As the announcement states, “Beyond losing the Memorial Day date for LIB 2020, we are unfortunately not able to provide further details on LIB’S future status at this time.
