Festival season is right around the corner and ravers are already preparing for their favorite festivals, like top-of-the-list fest Electric Forest!

The beloved Rothbury, Michigan festival announced that they are expanding to two distinct weekends, June 22 to June 25 & June 29 to July 2, 2017, for its seventh year. Some of the major fan favorite headliners include The String Cheese Incident, Bassnectar, ODESZA, Above & Beyond, My Morning Jacket, Big Gigantic, Claude VonStroke, Nero, and many more, with additional headliners and artists to still be announced.

In the spirit of Electric Forest’s commitment to building and nurturing community, the festival posted a “Call to Action” along with the initial EF17 artists lineup announcement. EF Producers, Madison House Presents and Insomniac, are encouraging the EF community to listen in the face of monumental change:“Listen to new ideas, listen to difference, listen to the creative, listen to those in the margins, and listen to expression from music.”

The freedom and acceptance that the Electric Forest experience has come to be known for is more important now than ever. Next year, the Forest Family will continue to seek a revolution of spirit. The EF producers expressed, “Together, we aim for a truly epic experience. A celebration of purpose to match those historic times.”

The String Cheese Incident will perform two shows each weekend with a very special SCI Sound Lab Live Experience on the First Weekend and EF’s famed SCI Saturday Night Shebang hosted on the Second Weekend.

Many of the artists announced will perform both weekends, but promise unique shows so that no two experiences are alike. Fans can expect to hear some of the acts unplugged, with unusual collaborations and sit-ins, performing special themed sets, and more.

The Forest’s favorite instructor, Hannah Muse, returns with Yoga, and new cardio dance opportunities with The Fitness Marshall will keep the Forest Family energized. The Silent Disco will also be hosted both weekend, along with additional artists, special happenings, and EF Curated Events.

The first round of EF Curated Events were also announced. Bassrush, Bird House, Foreign Family Collective, Her Forest, and Night Bass will host EF stages on the First Weekend. Bassrush returns for the Second Weekend, along with Crew Love, Future Classic, Hi-LO presnts Heldeep, No Xcuses, and Turntablists.
