Electric Forest is no average music festival. Anyone who has experienced the magic of walking through Sherwood Forest at night for the first time will certainly attest to this. Foresters come from all over the country to feel the spirit and energy that is harnessed at this unique festival, and such a special environment requires an equally special lineup.
The 4th Annual Electric Forest Festival is going to be bigger and better than ever, making its return to the famous Double JJ Ranch in Rothbury, Michigan. Save the dates: June 26th – 29th you will not want to be anywhere else. The artists, fans, art and natural landscape come together to form a paradise of music, friendship and fun at the Electric Forest.
The anticipation for a lineup to this ultimate music and camping festival had been growing steadily since before the New Year began, and this past Friday the fans patience was rewarded with a huge first phase announcement. Electric Forest is known for bringing out some of the largest names from a multitude of genres, and this year appears to be no different. The String Cheese Incident, a hallmark of every Electric Forest lineup, will return to play three shows, including one special performance with Lauryn Hill. Additions headliners include STS9 (who will also play two shows), Steve Angello, Zedd, The Glitch Mob, Flying Lotus, Zeds Dead, Eoto, and many more. These headliners, along with an abundance of other incredible artists, are sure to add their own great vibes and tunes to the already exceptional community soul that can only be found at Electric Forest.
