Electric Forest is a festival that entrances and exhilarates its attendees with a top-notch lineup and a unique, beautiful venue. With so many dedicated fans, Electric Forest expanded into a two-weekend format in 2017 – an effort to cut down on crowding in the campgrounds and provide a versatile experience for the festival-goers. However, in a recent announcement, the festival has revealed that they will be returning to the single weekend format in 2019.

The Insomniac-hosted festival has noted that this plan is part of a larger effort towards the conservation of Sherwood Forest. 2019’s iteration of the event will include “upgraded landscapes, areas with new grass, and infrastructure improvements across the site.” Though this may be a blow to some die-hard, two-weekend members of the Forest family, the idea of conserving the land for future generations of attendees is something that definitely is in line with the Electric Forest philosophy.

The 2019 edition of Electric Forest will take place June 27-30 in Rothbury, Michigan. Wristbands and lodging packages will go on sale at 12 p.m. EST Friday, December 7. Learn more here.
