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.
