Electric Forest 2017 Lineup – Electric Forest (EF) has revealed the initial artist lineup for the seventh annual music and camping festival in Rothbury, Michigan. For the first time in the festival’s history, Electric Forest will span over two distinct weekends on June 22–June 25 and June 29–July 2, 2017.
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 artist lineup announcement. In a post on the EF website, EF Producers 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 before. At EF17, the Forest Family will continue to seek a revolution of spirit. “Together, we aim for a truly epic experience. A celebration of purpose to match these historic times.”
For the 7th year in a row, Electric Forest welcomes back fan favorite The String Cheese Incident, performing 2 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. Also topping the bill on both weekends – Bassnectar, Big Gigantic and Claude VonStroke. Heavyweights ODESZA, Above & Beyond, My Morning Jacket, and Nero (Live) will perform exclusively on the First Weekend. DJ Snake, RL Grime, and Thievery Corporation will appear only on the Second Weekend. Many more artists, including additional headliners, are still to be announced.
