One special thing about Electric Forest, is that it radiates carefree vibes and a welcoming atmosphere like no other. The minute you set foot in the gates, everyone you come across becomes your “Forest Family.” Festival-goers walk by everyone they meet yelling “Happy Forest!” exchanging Kandi, and complimenting each other on their unique outfits or totems.

Then, there was the music. As Electric Forest expanded to two weekends in 2017, this allowed the festival to feature a diverse lineup of EDM, Hip-Hop, and R&B. The highlights of weekend one’s performances were Francis and the Lights, Tom Misch, Snakehips, FKJ, and Dillon Francis.
