Every year Electric Forest is one of the most celebrated festivals on the circuit. Combining jam band culture with dance music all in the pristine Sherwood Forest of Rothbury Michigan, the Forest is a special place of unity and connection. Now, after two years off due to the pandemic, the festival has returned with a lineup to match its reputation.
For the dance music community, headliners Disclosure, GRiZ, and Porter Robinson will warm their hearts while other acts lower on the list like CloZee, Subtronics, and John Summit satisfy every niche. All the jammers will be thrilled that The String Cheese Incident are returning for three sets along with other staples of the scene like Lettuce and Femi Kuti to provide instrumental soundscapes.
Those who know Forest, however, know that the music always extends far beyond electronic and jam. This year’s lineup has an impressive amount of soul with the organ master Cory Henry and nascent singer/songwriter Cautious Clay. There is also a presence of crossover electro-pop acts like Sylvan Esso and Mindchatter.
Sounds of all genres and sources will emanate amongst the trees at Electric Forest. If there is any festival to explore (and dance to) something new, this is it.
Electric Forest 2022 will take place June 23-26 in Rothbury Michigan. Check out the full lineup below. All remaining wristbands and add-ons go on sale this Friday, December 10. Click here for more information.
