BREAKING: Severe weather causes Electric Forest shutdown

Storms have descended on Rothbury, Michigan and Double JJ Ranch, where weekend 2 of Insomniac’s Electric Forest is currently underway.  A DA staff member on the ground states, “it’s dumping [rain] and lightning is hitting right outside the sight.”

We’re getting word via social media that as a result, the festival has been shut down indefinitely due to safety concerns from the wind, rain, and other elements pummeling the venue.

REZZ first posted about the festival being shut down, noting that the LED lighting had also been removed from the stage she’d been set to play. Shortly after, Electric Forest posted an official announcement on their Twitter and Facebook about the festival’s closure, asking everyone already on the grounds to please depart the premises and use their cars as shelter.

Rave photographer Rukes later replied to REZZ with a screenshot of the current storms passing through the area, stating the weather advisory predicted things to calm down by around 11 at night.

Stay tuned for more updates on the situation.
