Lightning in a Bottle is accessible to all guests with disabilities. It is our goal to continually make the festival more accessible, and we thank you for your support and participation.

Wheelchair Accessibility

The venue is fully navigable for people with mobility disabilities with the assistance of our Accessibility Team. ADA camping/parking is conveniently located near the main points of activity. Thus there are accessible pathways throughout the event grounds. Our Accessibility team will provide transportation to people that need extra assistance getting where they need to go. To request a ride, please check in at the Access Center.

Access Center

All accessibility-related inquiries can be answered at our Access Center. This is the location to request accessibility accommodations, recharge wheelchair batteries and/or the other assistive technology requiring electrical charging, as well as store medical equipment or just get some relief from the sun.


ATM’s and Concessions are fully accessible and located throughout the venue. If assistance is required please confer with a festival staff member.


A separate ADA lot will be available for patrons with a handicap placard and the applicable proof that that placard belongs to them. Please follow signage or ask staff upon entering the festival how to access this lot.


For ADA patrons who are camping, there is a camping lot with close proximity to the festival entrance and is located close to all activity areas/stages. To gain access to this lot, a handicap placard and paperwork to show that it belongs to the person requesting access will be required, in addition to a camping pass.  Please register for ADA Camping here.

First Aid

We have several First Aid locations that are noted on the festival maps. Professional medical staff can help you with your medical needs at these locations.

Pets and Service Animals

No animals or pets of any kind are permitted at Lightning in a Bottle (except your spirit animal of course!). Only legitimately trained service animals are permitted. The festival environment can be very unhealthy for house pets and emotional support animals, and can take a severe toll on their mental state.


This means:

  • NO Emotional Support Animals

  • NO Therapy Dogs

  • NO Comfort Animals

  • NO Pets

  • NO Exceptions


Trained service animals are permitted on a case-by-case basis. All service animals need to be registered at the Tolls upon entry into the festival grounds, and will be issued specific credentials. All service animals must be housebroken and under the proper care of the handler. Anyone bringing an animal will be responsible for and liable for any damage or injury caused by the animal. All service animals must remain by the handler’s side at all times and must be harnessed, leashed, or tethered, unless these devices interfere with the service animal’s work or the individual’s disability prevents using these devices. In that case, the individual must maintain control of the animal through voice, signal, or other effective controls. All animals should have legally required vaccinations which may checked.


Please keep in mind, it is illegal to fraudulently claim that your pet is a legitimate service animal. Please contact our ADA department for more information here.

Viewing Platform

There will be accessible viewing areas made available to ADA patrons who may need to see above the crowd. AVAs will be located for Thunder and Lightning stages. For access, please visit the Access Center.

Effective Communication Request

There will be several options available for ADA patrons who are hard of hearing. There will be Hearing Loops provided for the Thunder and Lightning stages, as well as assisted listening devices available at the Access Center (you will need to leave your government issued ID with us until you return the device). We will also have American Sign Language Interpreters (available upon request) to provide sign for requested performances. If you require an ASL Interpreter, please contact PLEASE NOTE: Requests must be made no later than four weeks before LIB to allow for sufficient processing time.

Visual Accommodation

We will be providing daily guided tours throughout the venue. If you would like a guided tour, please contact or come by the Access Center once onsite.

The Do LaB will consider any request by a guest with a disability for reasonable modification of its policies, practices or procedures or for auxiliary aids and services that will permit the guest equal enjoyment of the goods and services offered at the Festival.  We encourage you to make any such request as far in advance as possible to enhance our ability to evaluate and fulfill the request.
