Another day closer to the start of 2018, means another fantastic festival lineup has been revealed. On Thursday it was the magically illuminated Electric Forest, which announced the lineups for each of its two weekends for when it takes place at Rothbury, Michigan’s Double JJ Resort once again this coming summer.
For their 2018 running, Electric Forest will see The String Cheese Incident performing a pair of headlining sets both weekends, along with Bassnectar, GRiZ (live band), Rüfüs Du Sol, Galantis and ZHU for weekend one June 21-24. The festival’s second weekend, which takes place June 28-July 1, will see Marshmello and Testpilot (aka the techno alter-ego of Deadmau5) replacing Galantis as just a few of the main headlining acts.
Other artists on this year’s lineup who are scheduled to perform at both weekends in the glowing woodlands include Bonobo, Cut Copy, Gryffin, Louis The Child, The Werks, The Nth Power, Turkuaz, Marian Hill, The Glitch Mob, Xavier Rudd and the long awaited return of Chromeo just to name a few.
Since starting in 2011, Electric Forest has become one of the premiere summer events for fans in both electronic and jam band music worlds. The unlikely combination between the two very unique fanbases has worked out quite well, as bands and artists from both ends of the musical spectrum have helped add to the magic that settles upon the Rothbury forest for eight days and colorfully bright nights each summer.
