Electric Forest sets the tone for 2017’s festival season with a jam packed lineup announcement.

The beloved Michigan festival expands to two distinct weekends for its seventh year, with The String Cheese Incident, Bassnectar, ODESZA, Above & Beyond, My Morning Jacket, Big Gigantic, Claude VonStroke, and many more, with additional headliners and artists still to be announced.

In the spirit of Electric Forest’s commitment to building and nurturing community, the festival posted a “Call to Action” along with the initial EF17 artist lineup announcement.  In a post on the EF website, which can be viewed HERE, EF Producers are encouraging the EF community to LISTEN in the face of monumental change.  “Listen to new ideas, listen to difference, listen to the creative, listen to those in the margins, and listen to expression from music.”  The freedom and acceptance that the Electric Forest experience has come to be known for is more important now than ever before.  At EF17, the Forest Family will continue to seek a revolution of spirit. “Together, we aim for a truly epic experience.  A celebration of purpose to match these historic times.”
