Just this week, Electric Forest finally released their full lineup. The festival also explained its decision to scale down to take place over only one weekend in 2019. The lineup was the perfect example of what Forest has become synonymous with – quality electronic music, some of the best jam and funk in the world,

Needed time to breathe in between Electric Forest’s one weekend announcement and the lineup? Too bad. Within one week, Electric Forest has debuted that they’re going back to one weekend, that the tickets are going on sale Friday, and now we have the lineup. It’s okay, I’m overwhelmed too. In 2019, Odesza, Kygo, Bassnectar, Zeds

Electric Forest is pulling out all the stops for their single 2019 edition. The festival recently scaled back their two weekend offering back to their original one weekend format, though organizers were quick to even it out with the delivery of 2019’s lineup. To say next year’s billing is stacked would be an understatement — ODESZA, Kygo, Bassnectar, and Zeds Dead are holding down headlining duties, with festival favorites The String Cheese Incident returning for a three-night run. The under card features a mile-long list of talent headed to Rothbury, Michigan including Claude VonStroke, Alison Wonderland, Bob Moses, Lettuce, Ekali, Whethan, Gramatik and many more across June 27 – 30.
SLANDER and NGHTMRE are billed for a GUD VIBRATIONS label showcase, with Snails, TOKiMONSTA, The Knocks, and Bloodpop all slated for Electric Forest 2019 as well. Live sets from Gorgon City, Pnuma, and Ookay are expected, along with jam band flavors and a healthy serving of hip-hop from T-Pain. See Electric Forest 2019’s full lineup below.
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.

After what felt like the longest wait ever, we finally have the dates for Electric Forest 2019. The festival went to all social media platforms to debut the announcement. The biggest part of the announcement? The coveted two-weekend festival will be back to one in 2019. The festival plans on going back to one weekend

This is truly one of the most heartbreaking things I have seen in quite some time. Only one individual died at Electric Forest this past year (excluding Kevin Graves who is still missing). His name was Hunter. As his parents are still processing the tragic and untimely passing of their son, they have begun reaching
It seems like Electric Forest was just a week ago but for the family of Kevin Graves, it must feel like a lifetime. Kevin is a 28-year-old man local to Michigan. He went missing during the second weekend of Electric Forest this year. Despite professional and amateur search efforts, Kevin is still missing 30 days

The duo recently revealed that they would not be returning to Colorado’s famed Red Rocks Amphitheater in 2019, thereby ending a consecutive four-year streak of annual shows at the venue. The pair assuaged any disappointment that their announcement inspired among listeners in their promise that they had “something big in the works” instead.
Its been an absolute honor to perform at Red Rocks, and 2018 was our favorite yet! After an incredible 4 years in a row, we won’t be returning to Red Rocks in 2019, but we’ve got something big in the works. Stay tuned ⬡⬡

Fans have been waiting attentively to see what Harrison Mills and Clayton Knight’s next joint move will entail, though a festival venture seems like the most likely next move. ODESZA indicated interest in a festival featuring talent from their Foreign Family Collective label in a Reddit AMA hosted in 2017. Fans have speculated that the producers will not only debut a Foreign Family Collective festival in 2019, but will host the rumored event at another iconic outdoor venue — the Gorge Amphitheater, a space that ODESZA has yet to play.
Foreign Family Collective enjoyed an Electric Forest first in 2017 with ODESZA’s own stage, programmed with talent curated from their imprint including Jai Wolf, Chet Porter, Kasbo, and RÜFÜS DU SOL. Launching a festival-style event would be a logical progression, though as speculation continues to mount, ODESZA remain tight lipped. We’ll have to wait and see.

Electric Forest has just wrapped its 8th annual gathering, and the Insomniac/Madison House produced event seems to grow exponentially with each passing year. Complete with spectacular new stages, yet another expertly curated 2018 line-up, and new crevasses to explore at every corner of the grounds, it’s no wonder Sherwood Forest is a place that draws world-class visual and musical artists to showcase their work.
Living up to it’s promise to offer a truly unforgettable, always changing festival experience, EF boasted a completely revamped Ranch Arena stage, which played host to resident headliners The String Cheese Incident and Bassnectar, along with Marshmello, ZHU, and Galantis, to name a few. The expansive Tripolee stage continues to add new visual dimensions to its world each year, with artists like CloZee, Netsky, Herobust, Jauz, and Testpilot revealing a new chapter into its rich story. Step deeper into Sherwood Forest to find The Observatory and Forest stages, which hosted several secret sets and a Desert Hearts takeover throughout the weekend. Perhaps the most exciting addition to the Forest, however, was the Carousel Club, a brand new circus tent stage experience that played host to renegade artists featuring the Saturn-sounds of rising act Desert Dwellers.
For those who weren’t so lucky to have witnessed the weekend spectacle live and in-person, DA has compiled a list of streams from Electric Forest 2018 to relive the festival’s most magical moments. This post will be updated as more sets become available.
