Electric Forest announces 2013 dates, may also double capacity
Nestled in the majestic backwoods of the Double JJ Ranch in Rothbury, Michigan, Electric Forest is truly a festival experience like no other. Every year, art installations, kaleidoscopic lights, and gallivanting vagrants fill the deep wilderness in celebration of dance music. This summer, the natural habitat will suffer (or savor) pervading basslines and reverberant soundscapes June 27th through the 30th. It is also apparent that the festival plans to expand again. With a capacity of 25,000 last year, Electronic Midwest reports festival producers have requested to nearly double the capacity to 40,000. The increase in attendance would see extended use of the grounds (similar to the Rothbury Festival in 2009) and most likely additional stages. DA will keep you updated as more information unfolds.
