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.
