Future Forest is an outdoor camping festival with a focus on electronic music and art. The festival originated in 2012 as a fundraiser for a friend and accomplished DJ, Jay Hamilton, who was diagnosed with cancer. Future Forest proudly embraces the perspective that there are no spectators at the event but rather participants who in some way contribute to the overall experience. Now in its sixth year of operation, the 2018 festival features world-renowned international musicians as well as many local and up-and-coming artists with over 100 musicians.
The festival is located just outside of Fredericton, NB on the side of Little River in a 200 acre wilderness retreat that the festival purchased. The festival promotes many kinds of art other than music including performance art, visual art, art installations, digital projection art and stage design.
