[FEST NEWS] Electric Forest Packs Over 95 More Killer Acts Into Lineup
Electric Forest is a special place.
Any of the Rothbury, Michgan’s past festival attendees can tell a multitude of magical stories about its odds and ends.
But between repurposed-material saloon boogie-downs by the Jenkstars, bingo, full libraries, tea parties, or fairy nests in the forest trees, one thing is for certain, when it comes to detail the organizers never miss a beat.

The festival’s garnered an enormous amount of worldwide attention since its beginnings as Rothbury Festival in 2008, ultimately leading up to this year’s decision to hold two weekends. To those who have seen the crowds spike in recent years this seemed like a no brainer.
Today in an additional lineup announcement, Electric Forest announced over 95 additions to the already incredibly, detailed lineup, proving itself once again as a world-renowned destination.
Both weekends are now set to feature appearances from The Revivalists, Snakehips, Haywre, EOTO, DJ EZ, StéLouse, Tom Misch (DJ Set), Bluegrass Generals featuring Chris Pandolfi, Andy Hall, Bill Nershi & Keith Moseley, and more.
The first weekend’s (June 22-25) added performances include Tycho, Breaking Biscuits (Break Science and members of the Disco Biscuits), Maya Jane Coles, ANDY C, Crizzly, and Kamasi Washington. While first weekend GA tickets are already sold out, those interested in attending can still purchase VIP passes for the Good Life Village.
Weekend number two (June 29-July 2) has added Conspirator, Nahko and Medicine for the People, Black Tiger Sex Machine, Break Science, Delta Heavy, Dr. Fresch, Oddisee & Good Company, Preservation Hall Jazz Band, and River Tiber. GA and VIP Tickets for Weekend Two are both still available, although they’re likely to sell out soon.
