Electric Forest is a four day music festival, showcasing talented musicians and artists, who know how to make us fall in love with our friends, random hula hoop dancers and the beautiful wonderland that is the Rothbury forest. It takes place from June 28th to July 1st in Rothbury, Michigan and tickets/line up just went on sale.
If you like camping, partying, forests, and lying in the grass while listening to The String Cheese Incident, this is your calling. I was in awe of last summer’s line up and I am just as excited for this summer. It is a grown up’s idea of a playground, with no rules and unforgettable moments –– I am definitely staying all for four days this summer.
Below, I listed some bands to check out, with links to their webpages. The songs are linked to Youtube.com for quick listening.
