Electric Forest Festival Initial Lineup Announced

The String Cheese Incident

The initial lineup for Rothbury, Michigan’s inaugural Electric Forest Music Festival was announced today.

Highlights of the initial lineup include The String Cheese Incident (3 shows!), Tiesto, Bassnectar, Pretty Lights, Karl Denson’s Tiny Universe, Lettuce, The New Deal, Railroad Earth and Toubab Krewe. There will also be a “Saturday Afternoon Special” with REO Speedwagon. To view the full initial lineup, click here.

The festival is replacing the infamous Rothbury Music Festival, but its focus is clearly different. Electric Forest is a mix of premium jam groups with top-shelf electronica.

Tickets go on sale on Saturday, March 5 at Noon. There will be a limited number of $199 weekend tickets available.

If it’s sounding a bit steep for you, don’t worry. There will be a work exchange program to attend the festival in exchange for sacrificing some of your time.

More news on this one as it’s released.

About clazaga5

I am a music writer. I graduated from FIU's School of Journalism and Mass Communications in April, 2011. I've always had a passion for music. Since high school, I've been involved in a few bands and written a good number of original songs. I loved going to shows and seeing live music. So when the notion struck me to combine the two, it seemed only logical that I write about live music when and wherever I find it. This blog is what came of that notion.
