Electric Forest drops lineup; expands festival to two weekends

Over the years Madison House and Insomniac have curated a festival that has become a staple in many of our calendars.  Back in 2015, tickets sold out within 24 hours; earlier this year we saw tickets sell out within 17 days – before the artist lineup was even announced.  With such high demand for the opportunity to experience the magic of Sherwood Forest, like Coachella, Electric Forest will now take place over two weekends in 2017.  Next summer, thousands will flock to Rothbury, Michigan for the first weekend taking place June 22nd – 25th, with the second weekend being scheduled for June 29th – July 2nd.  Now with the lineup announcement, the organizers have said that while many of the acts will perform both weekends, each of the total eight days will be a unique experience.

Resident acts The String Cheese Incident and Bassnectar will, of course, perform both weekends.  Attendants of weekend #1 can also expect Odessa, My Morning Jacket, Above & Beyond, Big Gigantic, Lotus, and Oliver Heldens to headline.  Those attending weekend #2 will get DJ Snake, RL Grime, Thievery Corporation, Lotus, A-Trak, and more.  Tickets go on sale December 8th!
