Today, Electric Forest (EF) revealed the initial artist lineup for the seventh annual music and camping festival in Rothbury, Michigan. For the first time in the festival’s history, Electric Forest will span over two distinct weekends on June 22–June 25 and June 29–July 2, 2017. View the complete list of announced artists set to perform the First Weekend and Second Weekend HERE. 
 
In the spirit of Electric Forest’s commitment to building and nurturing community, the festival posted a “Call to Action” along with the initial EF17 artist lineup announcement.  In a post on the EF website, which can be viewed HERE, EF Producers are encouraging the EF community to LISTEN in the face of monumental change.  “Listen to new ideas, listen to
difference, listen to the creative, listen to those in the margins, and listen to expression from music.”  The freedom and acceptance that the Electric Forest experience has come to be known for is more important now than ever before.  At EF17, the Forest Family will continue to seek a revolution of spirit. “Together, we aim for a truly epic experience.  A celebration of purpose to match these historic times.”

For the 7th year in a row, Electric Forest welcomes back fan favorite The String Cheese Incident, performing 2 shows each weekend with a very special SCI Sound Lab Live Experience on the First Weekend and EF’s famed SCI Saturday Night Shebang hosted on the Second Weekend. Also topping the bill on both weekends – Bassnectar, Big Gigantic, and Claude VonStroke. Heavyweights ODESZA, Above & Beyond, My Morning Jacket, and Nero (Live) will perform exclusively on the First Weekend. DJ Snake, RL Grime, and Thievery Corporation will appear only on the Second Weekend. Many more artists, including additional headliners, are still to be announced.
 
Other acts announced today include: Snakehips, Pendulum (DJ Set), TroyBoi, Viceroy, and AC Slater on the First Weekend.  Cashmere Cat, Sub Focus, GTA, Alison Wonderland and Mick Jenkins on the Second Weekend. 
 
12th Planet, Jai Wolf, Lettuce, The Floozies, The Infamous Stringdusters, and Waka Flocka Flame  are among additional artists who will be performing both weekends, many of them promising unique shows so that no two experiences are alike. Fans can expect to hear some of the acts unplugged, with unusual collaborations and sit-ins, performing special themed sets, and more.
 
Yoga with The Forest’s favorite instructor Hannah Muse returns, and new cardio dance opportunities with The Fitness Marshall will keep the Forest Family energized.
 
The first round of EF Curated Events were also announced today. Bassrush, Bird House, Foreign Family Collective, Her Forest, and Night Bass will host EF stages on the First Weekend. Bassrush returns for the Second Weekend, along with Crew Love, Future Classic, Hi-LO presents Heldeep, No Xcuses, and Turntablists.
