Take part in the ultimate summer campout US festival under the star-studded skies and lush forests in Rothbury, Michigan, at the 2018 Electric Forest festival. Now is your time to hop in your car with your best buds and complete that epic timberland road trip you’ve dreamed about. The first ever Electric Forest festival was held in 2011 and has come a long way since. This year’s event will be held over an eight day span presenting multi-genre music performances and several cultural activities on the festival grounds.
Each weekend has a similar lineup and will feature some of the hottest names in bassy, funkadelic jams of the electronic music genre. The String Cheese Incident, Bassnectar, Rufus Du Sol and ZHU are notable headliners throughout the two week event. Bright colors, neon lighting and trippy visuals await those looking to dive into the deep magical influence of the Michigan forest.
Electric Forest also collaborates with multiple experiments and programs within nature’s community. Their “Plug In and Do More” campaign offers creative opportunities for attendees through multiple contests and artistic projects. From photographers, artists and eco-friendly citizens, Electric Forest 2019 has an event tailored for just about everyone.
“Plunge into psychedelic vibes of music, woods, water and camping during the Electric Forest festival.”
The 2018 Electric Forest festival will be taking place at the Double JJ Resort. The vast venue has expanded in recent years and now includes an indoor water park, golf course and a mock western town. Festival grounds are surrounded by the seemingly endless Michigan frontier where trees, water and everything nature awaits. Ticket packages range from general admission to several types of lodging packages. Choose from tent rentals, RVs or cabins for your preferred camping experience.
The closest airport is located about 30 minutes away in Muskegon for those flying in. Electric Forest Festival has also partnered with Bus.com to provide convenient shuttle travel from major city centers such as Detroit, Chicago, Grand Rapids, Muskegon and New York City. Shuttle ticket holders are eligible for early access on Wednesday night and can connect with new friends on the ride before hand! Once inside the festival grounds there isn’t much of a need for transportation. If you are looking to check out the surrounding areas, car rentals and ride sharing apps are your best best.
This should go without saying, but the Electronic Forest festival should really be experienced through one of the many campsites on the Ranch. Organizers for the event have provided several options for parties of all sizes. Grab a ticket package with just general admission or go all out with VIP access, bottomless beverages and exclusive private enclaves.
