Electric Forest is one of the largest growing jam band/electronica music festivals in North America. Quickly growing in popularity, the festival sold out its entire ticket base this year before the lineup was even released. Electric Forest takes place in Rothbury, Michigan across four days, June 23-26, 2016.
In the sixth year of its Electric Forest iteration, the festival ground of JJ Ranch will hold an event showcasing some of the hottest artists in the scene today. Some may argue this is the biggest lineup of the festival yet.
Headlining artists include the annual 3-night, 6-set performance of The String Cheese Incident, the returning performance of Bassnectar, and also headlining Major Lazer. Many other notable acts include the likes of STS9, The Disco Biscuits, Nahko & Medicine for the People, Alina Baraz, Marian Hill, and many more.
Music isn’t the only feature of this extravagant event. Electric Forest is home to many artists, community engaging organizations, and upbeat, welcoming, open-minded attendees. Together they create the Forest Family, a praise that any previous and future attendees refer to as a badge of honor.
We will be covering this event in June so please check back for photos and updates.
