10 Artists to Watch at Electric Forest: June 27th – 30th
This year’s festival season might be the busiest one we’ve ever worked. Between The Hangout, Party in the Park, Magnetic, Bonnaroo, AthFest, and now Electric Forest (not to mention the rest of summer), we’ve had to remember to occasionally slow down, drink some water, and pace ourselves. Not bad advice for anyone going to a festival this summer – or even life, bro.
Electric Forest takes place in Rothbury, Michigan at the Double J Resorts and will be held this year from June 27th – June 30th. Produced by Madison House and Insomniac Events, this four-day extrava-jam-za plays host site to performance from The String Cheese Incident, Pretty Lights, Passion Pit, Empire of the Sun, and more than 75 other choice nuggets from the EDM, jam, and even world/hip-hop scene – along with light and art installations as part of their new “Plug In” experience that gives fans seemingly unlimited creative options for crafting their perfect festival.
Lauren and Katie, two of our savvy writers, decided to give you a few suggestions on who to spend the weekend with if you’re having any doubts. Don’t forget your earplugs, friend.
