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.

He is from Highland Township and is 6 feet tall, weighs 185 lbs, has blue eyes, sandy blonde hair, and a USMC tattoo on his left shoulder. His family is offering a $10,000 reward for any details on his whereabouts.

He is 5 feet 6 inches tall, weighs 165 ibs. and has curly, strawberry blonde hair with blue eyes. He has a septum and nostril piercing, and a tattoo that says “slut” on his upper right shoulder as well as a cat whisker tattoo on his right index finger.

Our hearts go out to both families and we wish them a safe return home.
