After selling out in five hours, Electric Forest 2019 was bound to be epic. I’ve only been going to music festivals for about a year, but after hearing so much about Electric Forest, I decided to dive in for the first time this year. The only thing I was going off of was what I
Rothbury, Michigan – One year after Kevin Graves disappearing from Electric Forest in Rothbury, Michigan, his sister and her daughter have been passing out flyers and asking festivalgoers about her brother on the road leading up to the festival grounds. “Hi, my brother went missing from her last year,” she says asking if anyone knows

WUKILEAKS is the (now-not-so-hidden) gem account for DJs across the Internet—a project that started approximately three years ago by Kris Berman—better known as Wuki. The Denver-based producer started off with mash-ups of Busta Rhymes, the Six Flags-famed “We Like To Party” theme, and more, all of which instantly exploded into DJ sets everywhere. One year ago, Berman fused Major Lazer‘s breakout hit “Pon De Floor” with Daft Punk classic “One More Time.”
Now, Wuki gives fans a new take on another masked-robot classic, teaming up with Ship Wrek on “Techno Logic.” The rising LA-based duo are making a ton of noise with their distinct brand of house, adding that flare to the grooved-out bass-line on this new collaborative homage to the French visionaries. Of course, listeners are also welcomed by utter craziness from Wuki under the beloved Daft Punk sample.
Catch Wuki on a packed summer itinerary, hitting Electric Forest on June 29 after a string of shows in Australia, followed by a performance at Yellow Club in Bangkok before stops at Red Rocks (August 10 with Alison Wonderland) and Electric Zoo August 30.
It seems deadmau5 is perennially hard at work. From consistently live streaming his creation process for fans and overhauling his Cube rig for the third time, to scoring films and pulling double duty at Ultra this year, performing under both his deadmau5 and Testpilot monikers, it seems Joel Zimmerman rarely takes a moment to smell the roses, if ever. Luckily for fans, the Mau5trap head honcho keeps the pedal to the floor, and his latest offering comes by way of a rare Testpilot outing, on perhaps the most renown mix show in electronic music. That’s right—we’re getting a Testpilot Essential Mix.
The BBC Radio 1 mix, debuting on March 23, is actually billed as deadmau5/Testpilot, suggesting that Joel will be flipping between aliases, and a trove of new material is likely underway. The Essential Mix comes hot off the heels of the recent release of Testpilot’s full Electric Forest performance from 2018. Revisit the Electric Forest set below in preparation for one of the most anticipated Essential Mixes of the year.
A lover of all things analog, Joel Zimmerman indulging his penchant for techno is a perfectly logical next step in the esteemed producer’s career. After launching his Testpilot alias for that exact reason more than five years ago and creating cryptic social media pages under the Testpilot name earlier this week, Zimmerman has shared his Testpilot set from Electric Forest 2018.
Having released just one track on Richie Hawtin‘s Minus imprint and played major festivals such as Movement and Ultra, Testpilot sets are known to be hard-hitting and rare. With his set from Electric Forest now available via Apple Music, fans can now check out the mixed selection of tracks from techno heavyweights Charlotte de Witte, ANNA, Pig&Dan, Cirez D, and more. Spanning over two hours, the set can be a great way to prepare for the Testpilot set at Ultra later this month or relive the high octane moments from the woods of Michigan last summer.

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.
