When Burning Man founder Larry Harvey limited ticket sales for the 2012 event, thousands of veteran and artist attendees were left out, and rumors swirled that Burning Man would end this year. But fear not, the transformative festival experience is far from over. Lucidity Music Festival, located in Live Oak Camp in Santa Barbara, is filling the Burning Man niche and then some.
Lucidity’s campgrounds are broken into six main categories: the Renegade, the Warrior, the Mystic/Healer, the Family, the Lovers, and the Lunatic. These aren’t your average festival campgrounds; each comes equipped with its own central downtown area, with booths, vendors and workshops that fit the village’s archetype. Warriors, do not leave your Boba Fett costumes at home! Most importantly the food vendors are going to treat their customers to an excellent local and organic menu, keeping you filled up all weekend.
Random Rab, Love+Light, Birds of Paradise, Russ Liquid and many others will grace the stage with their musical talent. The wide array of musical genres and performances guarantees good family fun for the whole gang. CelloJoe is going to be there, he beat boxes and plays the cello! How cool is that?
The best part of all? It is extremely cheap! For only $80 you get to run amuck in this crazy paradise for three days! The festival takes place on April 13th through the 15th and you do not want to miss it. Tickets available here.
