One of the most sought after music festivals in the United States, Electric Forest, has just dropped their lineup for 2018, and it’s stacked. Once again, Electric Forest will take place over two consecutive weekends: June 21-24, and June 28-July 1. This year, the majority of all the artists in attendance will perform both weekends. There are, however, artists who will be exclusive to either weekend. Those are highlighted in red on the lineup poster below.
At first glance, this lineup seems like a dream come true for electronic music fans with headliners like Bassnectar, Griz Live Band, Rufus Du Sol, and ZHU. Electric Forest has historically been a festival that does its best to combine the best of the electronic artists and jam bands. This year, although there is a small selection of great bands, seems to be more focused on EDM. For instance, String Cheese Incident, the band the festival was essentially created around, is now performing just two sets for the weekend, instead of their usual three.
That being said, we are SO hyped for Electric Forest 2018. We could go on and on listing all the names we are stoked on, but that could be endless. Instead, take a look for yourself at the amazing talent Forest HQ put together right here:
