Thanks to KXSC Radio and fellow alumni Jason, I was lucky enough to attend Lighting In A Bottle for the first time this year. If you've never been to this amazing festival, you're missing out. I'd describe it as the best elements of Coachella and Burning Man combined. During the day I went to yoga classes and workshops on everything from how to draw mandalas to permaculture, and at at night I danced my cares away to some of the best electronic acts making beats right now. Though, I can't really recreate the daytime experience for those who missed it, I can offer a highlight of the best tunes I heard and grooved out to.
With no further ado, here's the first episode of my newly resurrected radio show, Make More Noise. After a year hiatus, I bring you highlights from Lightning In A Bottle 2014: new artists discovered and old favorites celebrated! If you missed this amazing festival held in the heart of California, here's your chance to hear the best of the best, including J. Philip, Kraak & Smaak, Tourist, and What So Not. Originally aired on KXSC.org, a service of USC.
