Lightning In A Bottle 2017- A Preview of the Can’t Miss Music Magik!

first_imgLightning in a Bottle is not merely a music festival, but instead an unparalleled gathering where people congregate to experience open-minded community, and concepts for living a brighter tomorrow.  The instructions are quite simple, and the LIB Thrive Guide says it best: “Lead by example. Pack it In and Pack it Out. Honor the land. Respect others and their journey. Practice good citizenship. Own your actions. Go above and beyond.”LIB is unique for each person who attends the affair; no two LIBs are the same. Some focus on seminars and workshops, listening to ideas and inspirations from a cavalcade of gurus, experts, healers and leaders. Others seek out the litany of visionary installations and collaborative art projects evolving each year. People go to LIB for the diversified yoga programs, the learning kitchen, the spirituality, the tea houses, the improv troupes, the fashion, and the dozens of thriving subcultures. This year, The DoLab is unveiling The Compass; an evolution of educational workshops and content offerings. The Compass will bring a renewed focus on connecting activism and grassroots organizing to our core ethos of education, healthy living, environmental stewardship, and cultural respect. Families, loners, and longtime festival crews come back to LIB to experience what is among the most engaging, socially conscious, and interactive music festivals on the planet. The word “transformational” is thrown around a lot these days, but there is no irony, sarcasm, or tongue planted in cheek here; Lightning in a Bottle is a life affirming endeavor that can fundamentally change somebody, if they are willing and able to surrender to the flow.Lightning in a Bottle 2017, taking place over the long Memorial Day weekend holiday May 24-29, is shaping up to the best and most vibrant yet. Maybe the most amazing part of LIB is the wide-ranging blend of progressive music, across numerous genres and beyond!

Arsenal sign striker Lacazette from Lyon

first_imgArsenal break club record to clinch Lacazette dealLyon, France | AFP |  Arsenal signed France striker Alexandre Lacazette from Lyon for a club-record fee that could rise to 60 million euros ($68m, £52.56m), the two clubs confirmed on Wednesday.The transfer fee is also a new record sale for the Ligue 1 outfit, worth an initial 53m euros, according to a statement on the Lyon website.The deal beats the 50m euros that Arsenal paid to bring Mesut Ozil to the Emirates from Real Madrid in 2013, while it sees Lyon break their highest sale for the second time in a month after seeing midfielder Corentin Tolisso move to Bayern Munich for 47.5m euros.Arsenal said the 26-year-old had signed a “long-term contract”, which British media reported to be for five years.“We are very happy to have Alexandre join our group. He has shown over a number of years that he can score goals and that he is a very efficient finisher,” Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger said in a statement.“As well, he has very interesting technical qualities and a strong character.“So he is a guy who is a great addition for us, and someone who will help us challenge at the top level this season.”Lacazette will be hoping that the move to Arsenal can help boost his hopes of cementing a place in the France squad ahead of next year’s World Cup, having only played one international in the last two years.The north London club will be expecting Lacazette to add some much-needed firepower up front, after a disappointing fifth-placed finish in the Premier League last term that saw them miss out on the Champions League for the first time in 19 years.He scored 37 goals in all competitions last season, including 28 in just 30 league games.“I want to give 100 percent in every match. I want to show I’m worthy of the shirt. I want to do everything I can to make sure we win titles,” Lacazette told Arsenal’s website. “There are quite a few French players here, which makes it easier to settle in. In my opinion, Arsenal is also the club that plays the best football in England so I really wanted to come here.”He had been at Lyon since the age of 12, and scored 129 goals for the senior team, including 100 in Ligue 1.Lacazette, who has made 11 international appearances for France, last season became the first player to score 20 goals or more in three successive French top-flight seasons since Jean-Pierre Papin in 1992.“I am very pleased with the success of Alexandre, who, besides being one of Olympique Lyon’s best-ever strikers, is a charming player who I became very close to,” said Lyon president Jean-Michel Aulas in his club’s statement.Meanwhile, the signing puts the Arsenal future of Olivier Giroud in doubt.The former Montpellier front-man is currently above Lacazette in France coach Didier Deschamps’ pecking order, but he could now struggle to find a place in Wenger’s Gunners starting XI under pressure from his compatriot.Giroud has been linked with possible moves to both Everton and West Ham United.But Arsenal supporters will be delighted to see Wenger spending big, as they look to mount a serious challenge on a first league title since ‘the Invincibles’ lifted the Premier League trophy in 2004.
