Electric Forest Festival 2017
After careful and thoughtful consideration, Electric Forest is ready to take an amazing leap into the future. Forest HQ is incredibly excited to announce that Electric Forest 2017 will take place on two distinct and back-to-back weekends at a lower capacity. The dates will be:
Weekend 1: June 22 – 25
Over the past six years, the strength and spirit of the Forest Family have grown beyond our wildest dreams. But as we also grow in size, we keep coming back to one important question: How do we preserve intimacy and integrity while welcoming new friends?
Our community is an ever-evolving experiment of culture, creativity, and friendship where we explore what happens when the complexities of our daily lives are put on hold in favor of connecting with one another on a deeper level. Yet, there are many who do not have the opportunity to participate because weekend passes sell out so quickly. Why not expand something that creates so much good? Why not allow our collective energy to create space for new ideas, and greater participation? This is not untethered growth. This is mindful evolution with tremendous care being placed on the deepest ideals of the Forest. Electric Forest 2017 represents a meaningful, organic expansion into the creative wilderness that honors the experience we cherish together.
More information will be coming this Fall, although you may have many questions right now. Below is a short Q&A that will shed light on some main topics.
