Top Shelf readers– will we see you in the Forest?
Electric Forest has released its impressive 2023 lineup, returning to the Double JJ Ranch in Rothbury, Michigan from June 22-25. The beloved four-day Michigan music and arts festival celebrates its 11th year of performances, with a few familiar names returning to the stage.
Unfortunately, 2023 tickets have sold out within hours of going on sale. However, Electric Forest hosts an official wristband exchange for fans who are still looking to join the waitlist to purchase, or for those who can no longer attend and wish to sell. In working with AXS, the goal is to minimize the risk of counterfeit or fraudulent transactions, although EF still warns fans of unofficial exchanges. For more information, visit the link.
Headliners for Electric Forest 2023 feature Odesza, Jamie xx, Sofi Tukker, Illenium, Gryffin, Lane 8, Ganja White Night, Zeds Dead, Chris Lake, Chromeo, Above & Beyond, Rezz, Goose, and Madeon. As always, long time collaborators The String Cheese Incident is also planned to perform two sets. Other popular acts throughout the weekend include Channel Tres, 070 Shake, San Holo, SG Lewis, Gorgon City, and many more.
Since its creation in 2011 by Insomniac Events and Madison House Presents, Electric Forest has always focused on acts in the electronic and jam band genres. Formerly called ‘The Rothbury Music Festival’ from 2008-2011, EF has gained popularity over the years and has added fresh sounds in funk, psychedelic, reggae, and folk for fans to explore and enjoy. This year’s lineup is no exception, adding several emerging artists to the bill and rounding out their eclectic collection of acts.
The EF community is as passionate as they come, creating the four day experience to be nothing short of magical. Creating the iconic lights and art structures within the Forest combined with the exciting acts featured year after year solidifies Electric Forest as a must-see adventure of a lifetime.
