RECAP: ELECTRIC FOREST 2015

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:

ELECTRIC FOREST

We come to Electric Forest for each other.

The Forest is a place of love, not fear, of community, not segregation. With the arts as our language, we gather to hear the voice of community.

It is easy to see that monumental change has arrived. In these early days, the definition of change is unclear. It is unstable. It can still be shaped.

Now is the time to search for a new wisdom that community can provide. We seek a new center through understanding each other, and inspiring one another through actions of unity and hope.

Our call to action is simple. Listen.

More than ever before… Listen to new ideas, listen to difference, listen to the creative, listen to those in the margins, and listen to expression from music.

Listen HARD in every direction. Push with all of your might to uncover common ground. It is precisely there where we will find a revolution of spirit.

Listen far and wide. Listen with fierce love. If you come to the Forest, then bring what YOU can offer. Bring what you have learned. We want to know you.

Each day, we are one step closer to coming home again, and planting the seeds to make everywhere feel as open and as free as The Forest.

With immense gratitude, this is your invitation from all that is Electric Forest, and from the first artists who have committed to hear each other in Rothbury next summer.

Together, we aim for a truly epic experience. A celebration of purpose to match these historic times.

2017 Lineup Details: The String Cheese Incident, Bassnectar, Dillon Francis, DJ Snake, My Morning Jacket, Flume, Big Gigantic, RL Grime, Thievery Corporation, Lotus, Claude Vonstroke, A-Trak, Alison Wonderland, Cashmere Cat, Matisyahu, Lettuce, Papadosio, The Floozies, The Infamous Stringdusters, The London Souls and more!
