It’s in the name of the festival, and thus, prepare to be enchanted by Enchanted Forest 2018 and the full release of their Phase Two lineup!
In the lush greenery of Northern California’s Black Oak Ranch (Mendocino County) sprouts a small gathering that boasts a massive presence. Not to mention, a dope lineup curated with the wholesome intent of pleasing. Enchanted Forest offers a comprehensive selection of farfetched artists from across the globe as well as some local flavor and repeat offenders who have graced the stage in the past.
Enter the bass heavy orchard that is home to headlining acts like Mark Farina and Keys N Krates with everything from mushroom jazz, house & techno, and soulful electronic tunes between just the two. There is also Beats Antique with their highly performance based show and live music offering, dabbled with a bit of unexpected electronic flare as well. Touching upon the glitch hop genre, Marvel Years is set to get your tush bouncin’ with his electro-funk that makes your junk feel said funk!
For a lively musical experience, seek the Knoll Stage. This is where music conceives dance and play with instruments of the heart. In slightly less dramatic wording: this is the live stage! You may find one of my all-time favorites, Dirtwire, playing here and perhaps you’ll notice David Satori (violinist/multi-instrumentalist) from Beats Antique as well. Toying with the eclectic fusion of genres comes Del The Funky Homosapien w/ Amp Live. Damn right! I’m talking about Del from Hieroglyphics, Deltron 3030, the hip-hop dude on the Gorillaz track ‘Clint Eastwood’. I’m excited to see this new collaboration and you should be too!
Forget the music (not really), the Saucy Spa hosts sudsy, foamy, saucy parties throughout the weekend for you to dance away all your sins and general filth from the dust. You can quite literally get hosed down with a foam gun and rinsed off. Sound like a human car wash at the gas station doesn’t it? Oh…right…the music. Get grimy with Antennae and DOV1 who are also playing Knoll Stage under their moniker DNA. Also catch Bogtrotter for some heavy bass vibes and a handful of other names I’m not yet familiar with and cannot wait to be!
Enchanted Forest 2018 is June 8-10 at Black Oak Ranch, CA
