Electric Forest Puts Together 2 Expansive Weekends For 2018
Electric Forest has long established itself as one of the premier music festivals in North America if not the world. The multi-day extravaganza that calls Rothbury, Michigan home recently opened up a new chapter when the event extended to cover two weekends in 2016. Now, Electric Forest continues to plant its flag as one of the most well developed and high-quality festivals in the ever-expanding landscape. Electric Forest will return to the legendary Sherwood Forest from June 21-24 and June 28- July 1.
Some of the most faithful of the Forest Family may lament the festival’s inexorable growth and long for the says of its more intimate nascent stages, but it cannot be argued that Electric Forest stands at the summit of music festival prominence. 2018’s absolutely stacked double lineup is a testament to that. Bassnectar leads the way as one of the festival’s most visible residents while Griz’s Live Band, Bonobo (Live), Rufus Du Soul, Chromeo, The Glitch Mob ZHU, and Louis The Child join up with festival founders String Cheese Incident for two weekends of work.
