Southern California' s favorite holistic hippy festival Lightning in a Bottle has released its 2013 lineup, and boy is it a doozie. The five-day art-music-culture festival is celebrating its fifth year with a new location, a new summer date and plenty of fresh new acts to entertain.

Headliners include dubstep tycoons Rusko and GriZ as well as ambient rock acts Tycho and Nicholas Jaar. Other notable acts include Emancipator and Paper Diamond and festival regulars Lucent Dossier Experience. Even KCRW's own Jason Bentley will be providing a DJ set.

Here's the complete lineup:

In addition to the world-class music, Lightning in a Bottle has proved to be an amazing spiritual escape for yoga aficionados, artists and even families of all shapes and sizes. The festival's new location, now taking place at Lake Skinner in Temecula, is unproven for such an event but looks to be as equally beautiful and close as the festival's previous Southern California homes.

The new festival dates, now July 11-15 instead of Memorial Day weekend, will again prove to be a different experience as the summer heat descends upon the area.

While anything new can be a recipe for disaster in lesser hands, festival sponsors The Do LaB have really stepped up their game in recent years and will undoubtedly deliver on all levels.

Anyone who has been to the fest knows what a one-of-a-kind weekend it can be, and this year looks to be a similarly unique and fulfilling experience.

Tickets for the 2013 Lightning in a Bottle festival can be purchased on the event website.
