After Electric Forest 2016 (which runs from June 23 to June 26 in Rothbury, MI) sold out in record time, we were waiting patiently for the lineup to be revealed. Of course, there were multiple trolls with iffy Photoshop skills that created fake lineups.
People all over the internet couldn’t wait for the actual lineup and Electric Forest teased us with a Snap earlier this year, showing an envelope with the Electric Forest stamp with the hashtag #EF2016Reveal. Many of us wondered what it meant, while others just cheered.
The lineup was officially revealed a month ago, but we still aren’t over the excitement! These artists are CONFIRMED to play at Forest 2016:
The String Cheese Incident, Bassnectar, Major Lazer, Adventure Club, Baauer, Beats Antique, Bonobo (DJ Set), Duke Dumont, Fetty Wap, Flosstradamus, Gorgon City (Live), Greensky Bluegrass, Griz, Nahko and Medicine for the People, Porter Robinson (Live), STS9, Tchami, The Disco Biscuits, and more! Check out Electric Forest’s site for the rest of the lineup.
I’m so glad they’re sticking to their jam roots, instead of booking Hardwell or something (although Hardwell is talented…he’s not for Forest). Last year the lineup featured more EDM producers and DJs, like Big Gigantic, Borgeous, Carl Cox, Flume, Galantis, Kaskade, and Skrillex.
