Following the death, the festival released a statement that read, "Our deepest condolences go out to the family and friends of the woman who passed away at Twin Cities Hospital after attending Lightning in a Bottle this weekend. We ask that the LiB community keep her and her family in their thoughts and prayers during this difficult time."

The California festival is similar to Burning Man, featuring art installations, a pop-up city of tents, and a roster of cutting-edge DJs and artists.
