Electric Forest is one of the premiere festivals in the country. The massive, multi-genre music festival located in Rothbury, Michigan, awaits a crowd of over 40,000 raging fans.
Sherwood forest will be teeming with festival goers from all over the country. Fans will witness acts ranging from Flosstradamus, to The String Cheese Incident, and many many more in between.
The Electric Forest also has a wide variety of activities that are not music related. A 60,000 sq. ft water park in the Double JJ resort is available to all the attendees for the duration of the festival. Golf, yoga and psychedelic friendship bingo are also on site for our forest friends. Art installations are set up all throughout the forest, turning the festival grounds into a live art gallery.
