Rothbury, MI's Electric Forest Festival is located on the one-of-a-kind JJ Ranch, and features attractions such as the Sherwood Forest- a cool lounge by day that lights up at night with art and music, a waterpark, a lake, and, for you, over 25,000 potential new fans. Electric Forest prides itself on its cutting edge production- assembled by Madison House Presents and Insomniac- and its fantastically receptive community.
This year, we would like to invite a new artist onto our stage! Join a lineup that includes Bassnectar, STS9, Thievery Corporation, Girl Talk, Steve Aoki, Richie Hawtin, Wolfgang Gartner, and a lot more.
One talented winner will receive a 30 min set at the event's Forest Stage, 2 VIP Event Passes (valued at $1000), tent lodging onsite, and $500 towards travel.
We are ready to find a new artist with the skills, talent, and vibe that our eventgoers will adore.
See you in the Forest!
