Before we begin, check out this video Electric Forest released on theirYouTube Channel last week.

Yeah. That happened. And that was just a highlights reel.

Electric Forest is one of our favorite Summer events. This year, over 45,000 Foresters flocked to Rothbury, Michigan to attend the sold out festival featuring both huge names like The String Cheese Incident and Skrillex as well as our favorite buzz bands like Kevin Garrett and Made in Heights!

Here are a few clips, pics and snippets from a few weekends ago – stroll down memory lane with us as we reminisce and anxiously count down ‘til #EF2016.

The Performances:

The String Cheese Incident played a 3.5 hour set…and we loved every second of it. Arial acrobatics from a hot air balloon, blimp drones, confetti, oversized beachballs – we’re all about it.

Macy Gray throws back to a classic, revamped with Galactic and a grooving crowd. Excuse us as we get transported back to yesteryear and sing along.

Lindsey Stirling goes from YouTube sweetheart to rocking a packed set while fiddling w/ our hearts.

Artists’ Social Media:

Perusing Instagram is one of our favorite past times. Here are a few from #EF2015 by way of the artists.

Odesza, up close and personal.

Come back anytime, Flume.

Dancing to Allison Wonderland is our happy place.

Can we also join the fam Skrillex?

We will sport this look with you any day, Sarah!

YOU’RE SO WELCOME CRIZZLY.

The Foresters:
