Well folks, the final nail just got stuck in the coffin. It’s official; Electric Forest has absolutely killed it this year!
Umphrey’s McGee is the latest addition to this incredible lineup that, honestly, didn’t need any more additions. I thought it was killer the way it was, but rest assured that 2 shows of Umphrey’s McGee has just sent this bad boy in to best-fest-of-the-year ranking…That’s right, I said it.
Electric Forest is really just the full package now for a festy head. You like jams? Good, because String Cheese plays 3 shows, Umphrey’s & Tribe 2, Anders Osborne, Kung Fu, The Revivalists, Poolside, Papadosio and Moon Taxi will play hours worth of jammin’ good music for us. Actually, it might even add up to a day’s worth…
As far as electronic music goes, this is still my favorite lineup of the year! FlyLo, Tycho, Cut/Copy, Moby, Booka Shade, Art Department, Classixx, Dusky, Catz n Dogz, Justin Martin, Kaytranada, Soul Clap, Chrome Sparks…It seems I’m Electric Forest’s target because these choices are straight out of the bag of DJs I still enjoy.
Even if music is a side note for you, the amount of fun you can have in that forest late night is unparalleled by any other festival. As they continue to expand, adding layers to their tripster playground, I can’t wait to see what they do this year!
