Hosted annually at the Double JJ Resort in Rothbury, MI, Electric Forest is one of the premiere jam and electronic music festivals in the United States. The festival was co-founded in 2011 by Insomniac Events and Madison House, two years after Rothbury Festival--held at the same location--was dismantled. Since that time, Electric Forest has become so popular that it’s been expanded to two weekends for 2017: June 22-25 and June 29-July 2. Headliners for this year’s event include String Cheese Incident, Bassnectar, Flume and My Morning Jacket, with Dillon Francis, Big Gigantic and Lotus also on tap. Besides the impressive roster, the fest is known for its Sherwood Forest, an area which transforms from a relaxing hangout spot by day into a seemingly enchanted party spot by night. There’s plentiful on-site camping available at the Double JJ Resort, and layaway options for those interested in a ticket payment plan.
