Is camping included with my festival pass?

YES. 2-Day, 3-Day, 4-Day & 5-Day Passes include general walk-in camping. If you’d like to camp with your car, you’ll need to purchase a Car Camping Pass in addition to your festival pass.

Does each person inside a vehicle need a car camping pass?

No, you’ll only need one car camping pass per vehicle. Only one person in the vehicle needs to purchase a car camping pass if you plan to camp with the vehicle. Each adult in the vehicle needs their own Festival Pass (5-Day or 4-Day Pass or 3-Day Pass or 2-Day pass).

What qualifies a vehicle as Car Camping vs RV Camping?

Van or Camper-Van = Car

Car with Trailer = RV

*All lengths of vehicle passes are for combined total length of RV and any vehicle towing*

What else is super important for me to know about RV passes?

RV areas will be much closer to the action this year! RVs with Power will be in a separate RV campground than RVs without power. All RVs will be placed in order of arrival and at the discretion of the RV placement team. We cannot accommodate self selection during the arrival process. For best chance of neighboring with your friends, please stay in line together. All RVs have a limited amount of space along side the RV and is considered your "personal space" which accomodates opening the awning for a cool social space between you and your neighbor. Small unstaked tents may fit in this space if desired, but cars are unlikely to fit. There is no sewage dumping for any RV upon exit of the festival. As with general event policy, no unathorized amplified sound! Please respect the neighborhood vibes of a cozy RV camp. More information on RVs will be on the LIB site and buyers can expect a reach out with more information closer to the festival.

Can I bring my pet?

NO, Absolutely no animals or pets of any kind are permitted at Lightning in a Bottle (except your spirit animal of course!)
This means:
NO Emotional Support Animals
NO Therapy Dogs
NO Exceptions
Medical alert animals (those used to warn the owner of a life-threatening medical condition) are permitted on a case-by-case basis. Please contact our ADA department at for more information.

Can I bring a generator to use at my campsite?

Due to safety and fire concerns, the use of any personal generators inside the festival and campgrounds is now prohibited. We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience this causes our attendees. We appreciate everyone's support and understanding as we work together with the Kern County Fire Department to keep LIB safe.

The festival will have safety staff monitoring the campgrounds to enforce all safety regulations.
