In addition to Electric Forest’s incredible performance lineup, EF is known for offering “the ultimate festival experience.” From its carefully curated musical lineup, to the jaw-dropping Sherwood Forest, to the festival’s unprecedented participatory spirit via its “Plug In” program, to the site’s incomparable features and amenities - Electric Forest offers astonishing and unparalleled integration of music, art and community.
Electric Forest’s “Her Forest,” which launched last year as part of EF’s Plug In Program, is demonstrative of EF’s commitment toward creating a truly unique festival experience. Watch/embed EF’s just-release Her Forest Highlight Video HERE. The Her Forest program strives to nurture Connection, Inspiration, and Comfort within the EF community. Her Forest activities - including the Her Forest Women’s Camp, the Her Forest Artist Panel, and Her Forest Women’s Circles - are intended to help create the most supportive and empowering environment possible for festival attendees, especially for those who identify as female. New this year to the Her Forest program is a Her Forest Curated Event. The “stage–takeover” is now accepting submissions from dancers, musicians, and DJs from all over the world who would like to be considered to perform in a celebration of women and all they offer to art.
