Back for the third year of it's six year story arc, Lucidity Festival is returning to it's favorite spot, snug in Santa Barbara's Live Oak Campground where Lightning in a Bottle was first held. This year's theme is the 'Universe', building on the 2012 theme of 'Awake Your Dreams' and last year's theme 'The Totem's Return
Starting back in 2012, The Lucidity Festival is the brainchild of bold, bright minds from Santa Barbara. Started by Luke Holden, Andrew Garrard, Jonah Haas, Alan Avila and Satory Palmer (no longer with the group), the team has gone from building a festival to pushing a lifestyle, with international events, conscious media and lucid marketing.
The Lucidity Festival itself is the culmination of community efforts; envisioning themselves as an open-source festival of transformational music and art, garnering and manifesting ideas from each and every participant.
Lucidity implies clarity of self and the capacity to perceive the truth, and throughout the four day Festival there are a variety of theme camps, live art and interactive entertainment pushing each individual to find their own 'lucidity.' The festival's mission is to strengthen the community through the individual using their seven tenets - which are as follows:
1. Participation and immersion in the artistic process
2. Personal growth and healing
3. Awake and aware consciousness
4. Environmental and social responsibility
5. Fun and creative play
6. Communal reciprocity
So far, the musical talent from this year includes (but is most definitely not limited to):
