About Electric Forest:
Picked "one of the world's best music festivals" by Jetsetter for delivering "the ultimate festival experience" (IMF Magazine), Electric Forest offers a deep and diverse performance lineup, incomparable VIP accommodations, unique on-site features and amenities, astonishing and unparalleled integration of music and art, and a vibe so thick with "camaraderie and freedom…it must be experienced to be appreciated." (Consequence Of Sound)
At the heart of Electric Forest, the beloved Sherwood Forest is "with no exaggeration at all, the most well produced and artistically inspired area…ever seen at a music festival" (Magnetic Magazine). Showered with state-of-the-art, jaw-dropping light displays, intricate and earthy artful touches, and everything in between, in 2013 the Sherwood Forest is expanding in size for the first time ever. Fans can look forward to more to discover, wonder and wow.
Also in 2013, Electric Forest's unrivaled GOOD LIFE VIP experience promises even more stellar amenities and perks. From camping and RV spots, to log cabins and homes, to resort hotel-style suites – all located directly on the festival grounds – The GOOD LIFE has something for all budgets and tastes. The festival's exclusive site at the Double JJ Ranch - hailed as "The best place to hold a music festival" (Magnetic Magazine) - offers trails, forests, fields, lakes and beachfronts, and even on-site bars and eateries. In addition, Electric Forest patrons can take advantage of the resort's many amenities including a 60,000 square foot indoor water park, an 18-hole championship golf course, swimming pools, horseback riding, and more. Visit www.electricforestfestival.com for GOOD LIFE options and details.
Known for fully embracing the possibilities of an engaged festival community, Electric Forest's ever-evolving fan-participation "Plug In" Program has "reinvented the sense of unity [that can happen at a music event], insisting that mainstream festivals can be so much more for people than just a party. Rather an artistic playground for...young adults to communicate their innovative ideas and art-works through any means fathomable." (The Untz)
