Electric Forest Festival
Electric Forest is amazing. It inspires plenty to say but I am going to keep it short. This festival is unapologetically immature. Nanny Nanny Boo Boo. This is the festival of the future with freaks, geeks, and oh my! Kids. Or Kidz as we used to call em in my day. They are lude, crude, young, and full of piss and vinegar. Yes.
The 5th annual Electric Forest (EF) festival returned to the scenic woods of Rothbury, Michigan this past weekend hosting epic live music, stunning art installations and enchanted experiences around every turn. Throughout the long weekend, which offered near perfect weather, 45,000 attendees enjoyed over 125 live music performances on 7 stages, 20+ larger-than-life creative installations and gathering spaces, 250+ colorful roaming characters, 22 disco balls, and endless memories. Electric Forest 2015 once again raised the bar for U.S.
Electric Forest 2015 sold out in one day. How can that be? Well it isn’t for one particular reason but rather a whole bunch of reasons. The 5th installment will take place June 25th – 28th 2015 and for the over 35,000 folks ready to rage the forest, there is no doubt that it will be more glorious as the Festival continues to grow in glory. This festival is as unstoppable as only Pure Michigan can promise.
Today, Electric Forest’s (EF) Plug In Program launches the “Think For Yourself” campaign. In celebration of Electric Forest’s spirit of personal expression, and created in partnership with non-profit organizations The Urgency Network and Fight For the Future, the campaign aims to raise awareness around the issues of internet freedom and privacy.
Today, Electric Forest (EF) released the names of over 25 artists that are new additions to the lineup, including details on The Curated Event Series, for the festival’s eagerly awaited return to the Double JJ Ranch in Rothbury, Michigan on June 25-28, 2015.
Amidst a deep, emerald forest on the coast of Michigan's lower peninsula lies an extraordinary musical sanctuary; a ranch turned psychedelic playground which plays host to one of the world’s most premier music festivals, a place where thousands of fans from across the country come to experience the one-of-a-kind atmosphere that can only be captured in the deep woods of Rothbury.
