When: June 25th-28th
Where: Rothbury, Michigan
Why Go: Remember that dream where you do-si-do'd to the String Cheese Incident's progressive bluegrass then raved to the pulse of Steve Angello's Swedish house? That wasn't a dream, it was a flashback to last year's Electric Forest. The aptly named rural festival literally lights up the woods, blasting Wonderland visuals into the natural environment. Once again, the soundtrack will include EDM, jam bands and a lot of twentysomethings saying, "Ooh."
Must-See Acts: The String Cheese Incident, Bassnectar, Skrillex, Kaskade, Carl Cox, Flux Pavilion, Galactic with Macy Gray, Green Velvet, Joe Russo's Almost Dead, John Digweed, Paul Oakenfold, Flume, Lettuce, Charles Bradley and His Extraordinaires, Four Tet
