Electric Forest

by FRANK GARCIA

Electric Forest Festival is an eight day event on two weekends with multiple genres of music. Although the focus is on electronic and jam band genres. This event is in Rothbury, Michigan, at the Double JJ Resort. It is separated into two weekends, Thursday-Sunday is for the festival and Monday-Wednesday is used to clean up for the next weekend.

During the festival people camp in the fields in tents and walk to the concert ground. Inside the concert ground there is a forest that has lights all over the trees and all sorts things inside there. Electric Forest is in a more rural settlement compared to most festivals that are in bigger cities like Chicago or Los Angeles. This gives it a different crowd and feel than most. Electric Forest had its debut in 2008 and has been a hit ever since. Every year the attendance goes up and the lineups get increasingly better. Electric Forest is an experience everyone needs to have.
