Music fans and festival junkies can sleep well on Tuesday night knowing that they’ll be heading back into the forest of Rothbury, Michigan next summer. Electric Forest announced its full 2019 lineup on Tuesday, along with detailing the dates and location for when it returns next summer. More notably, Electric Forest will go back to taking place over just one weekend in 2019 instead of two as it was expanded in 2018, but fans should still be ready for a nice long weekend of music and fun under the shade of the forest when the festival returns on June 27-30 next summer.
The headliners for the 2019 edition of Electric Forest are all electronic based artists, including Odesza (Thursday), Kygo (Friday), Bassnectar (Saturday) and Zeds Dead to close things out on Sunday. Progressive bluegrass band String Cheese Incident will also return to the festival as part of their 25th-anniversary tour next year, where they’ll be playing three different sets throughout the weekend, so fans should be on the lookout for plenty of guest sit-ins whenever the Colorado jam band takes the stage. Other notable mid-level artists who are scheduled to perform at the event include rising Aussie DJ Alison Wonderland, Bob Moses and Ganja White Night, The Knocks, STS9, Gramatik and even T-Pain.
While electronic artists may seem to take up much of the space on the 2019 poster (see below) the weekend schedule also boasts a mix of jam-based bands including Lettuce, Mungion, Spafford, Twiddle, Ghost Light, Pigeons Playing Ping Pong and emerging Grateful Dead tribute band, Grateful Shred. Another notable jam band, The Nth Power, also look to be preparing a fun, customized set themed around Earth, Wind & Fire rebranded as Earth, Wind & Power.
G.A. and VIP Wristbands, as well as Lodging Packages will be available for first-time attendees beginning this Friday, Dec. 7, 2018, while returning fans will have early access to passes beginning on Wednesday.
