This past week has been filled with festival lineup drops across the nation with much anticipation building up for those heading to Rothbury, Michigan for Electric Forest 2015 this summer. There has been a lot of “leaked” lineup pictures floating around since the release of Wakarusa, Bonnaroo, Mountain Jam and other festivals. Although some artists on the leaked photo may very well be performing in the forest this year, these posters are indeed photo shopped and false.
HOWEVER, according to festival guru “The Festive Owl,” we can “expect the lineup to look more like 2011-2012. That’s about all we will say.” This remark has sent EF2015 goers off the wall and in hopes they will be able to experience performances by Pretty Lights, Big Gigantic, Grizmatik, Conspirator, Bassnectar and many more. Amongst these false lineup announcements, there have been some performances confirmed for Electric Forest such as Lotus, the String Cheese Incident, EOTO, Bassnectar and MartyParty.
In the past year, the EDM scene has kicked off with festivals such as Electric Daisy Carnival (EDC), Electric Zoo, and TomorrowWorld becoming widely popular and all containing well stacked major name DJ sets. I think what the Festive Owl was trying to hint at by telling anxious forest fans to expect a lineup that resembles that from 2011-2012, is this year Electric Forest goers can expect to stray a little far from home with the classic DJ sets of recent popular lineup announcements, such as Tiesto, Dillon Francis, and Zedd and expect more of a jam band based lineup.
Electric Forest Festival is set to return to the Rothbury, Michigan, Sherwood Forest, June 25-28, 2015. Throughout the years Electric Forest has never failed to provide festival goers with some of the best lineups available. In 2014, the festival’s lineup consisted of The String Cheese Incident, Steve Angello, STS9, The Glitch Mob, Matt and Kim, Moby DJ, Tycho, Bro Safari, Zeds Dead, Conspirator, GTA, Luke the Knife, Papadosio, Zoogma and many more.
There are different packages and wristbands available for forest goers. The festival is offering a few NEW options this year if you want to rent a tent, RV, Cabin or Log Home while there. All of the ticket options can be viewed on Electric Forest’s Ticket Info Page.
All wristbands will be mailed in the weeks before the event unless otherwise specified in the purchase process. Please be sure to specify a mailing address where you can receive your wristband up to a week before the festival.
According to the forest: If your forest savings jar is only half full, never fear, all wristbands and packages will be eligible for the layaway payment plan.
How the layaway payment plan works is, you just have to put 10 percent down to lock in your Electric Forest wristband and then make THREE EQUAL monthly payments afterwards. The three follow up payments will be taken out of your account on the first day of the next three months.
