Check Out the Electric Forest First Round Lineup
Electric Forest is making big moves in 2017. Back in September the festival made a huge announcement that it would expand from one to two weekends in 2017, limiting capacity for each individual weekend but increasing ticket sales overall. The Rothbury, MI festival released its first phase lineup so that attendees can make a somewhat informed decision in advance of ticket sales opening later this month.
Out of its major headliners, The String Cheese Incident, Bassnectar, Lotus, and Big Gigantic will play on both Electric Forest weekends, June 22-25 and June 29-July 2. Weekend 1 includes Odesza and Above & Beyond, while weekend 2 features RL Grime and Thievery Corporation.
With only this initial lineup, I’m still finding it hard to decide which weekend I prefer. Both weekends of Electric Forest have a strong list of lesser-known acts spanning funk, jam, hip hop, trap, house and more. While I’m slightly leaning more towards weekend 1 (Odesza!), as long as you have a ticket you can’t really go wrong. There are a ton of names left to announce though, and I can’t wait to see what else Electric Forest will have in store in 2017.
Check out the full phase 1 lineups below – artists listed in yellow will play both weekends of Electric Forest. And don’t forget to visit electricforestfestival.com for information on ticket sales and other updates.
