The Learning Kitchen
You are what you eat! In the spirit of living well, in good health and vitality, we have added a fun and informative area to LIB this year called The Learning Kitchen. The Learning Kitchen will offer kitchen workshops that promote happy bodies and healthy eating habits, with classes ranging from farm-to-table meal prep, juicing and smoothies, raw food, the alchemy of cacao, herbal and medicinal beer making, how to eat for better sex, and more.
The Village Culture as a Verb
The Village is an invitation, a story in the making. A co-creative cultural experiment birthed out of the longing for and fascination with what village life could be, and how to bring that into a festival context. Within the collaborative process of exploring this inquiry, through our study of indigenous wisdom traditions, we acknowledge that at the core of village life are earth-based practices of creating offerings of beauty with our hands and with our voices.
The Village is an opportunity to experience and participate in many aspects of this way of being such as song sharing, ritual theater, sunrise and sunset ceremonies, collective prayer, storytelling, and much more. We will be providing varied forms of ancestral arts classes such as carving, archery, fire making, weaving, as well as councils and presentations of traditional stories and prophecies with Indigenous Elders.
The popular Lumi Lounge & Cafe is back at LIB, as The Do LaB and Rasa Foods will once again team to provide a proper place to relax and savor some delicious organic delights while listening to live music from a fresh lineup of talented singer-songwriters and bands. Hosted by Michael Cassel and Shannon Moore from Venice of America, The Lumi Lounge & Cafe will be open day and night, so be sure to stop by for breakfast, lunch, dinner or late-night snacks while enjoying eclectic sounds you won’t find anywhere else.
SCENE. NOT HEARD” These words exemplify the mission, challenge, and lifeblood of Silent Frisco. This San Francisco-based crew of sonic missionaries turns impossible public performance challenges into powerful outpourings of free expression. They use cutting edge technology to enable artistic, political and educational expression.
Silent Frisco is bringing more than 3000 two-channel, festival-optimized wireless headphones. Custom-designed and built from scratch, Silent Frisco headsets operate on two simultaneous, long-range feeds, providing the best in audio clarity, volume, and comfort. With this technology, and the creative and operational experience born of 17-years in the business, they enable the music to play while neighbors enjoy peace and quiet. Once one removes “noise” and “nuisance” from the equation, public gatherings can be seen for what they truly are: an unalienable civil right.
They have consistently blazed new trails leading the US silent disco community on its first national tours, and first activations in beaches, parks, and boats.

What: Since its inception in 2010, Rootwire has grown to be one of the premiere live music and arts events in the Midwest – and is the on-going creative project of the nationally touring electronic/rock syndicate Papadosio. Well known for their relentless touring schedule, mindful melodies and transcendent tracks, Papadosio has become one of the major acts today seeking to reshape and transform the music festival landscape. Through their own eyes and ears, they have witnessed miracles and mishaps of festival culture alike and threw the first Rootwire as a way to create and practice their model for an ideal gathering. Every year since, the line-up and scope of the festival has grown, culminating in the critically acclaimed RW2K12, easily the most exciting and elegant Rootwire to date.
