Artist Lineup Revealed for 6th Annual
Electric Forest Festival
June 23-26, 2016
Electric Forest engages its community in the #EF2016Reveal,
announcing the lineup for another sold out year.

Yesterday, Electric Forest (EF) revealed the initial artist lineup for the 6th annual music and camping festival taking place June 23-26, 2016 in Rothbury, Michigan. Excitement for Electric Forest has never been greater with the festival selling out earlier than ever, a mere two weeks after tickets went on sale. In line with EF’s strong community spirit, the festival surprised the EF community by inviting them to announce the 2016 lineup first.

EF2016 Lineup Invitations, each revealing one or more artists on this summer’s eagerly awaited lineup, were mailed to a handful of randomly selected ticket-holders. With mail deliveries throughout the day, new artists were continually shared on social media with the hashtag #EF2016Reveal, creating waves of excitement and a level of interaction between a festival and it’s fans that has never been seen before.  Forest HQ followed the reveals and collected many of the posts at By 9pm – the entire EF16 lineup had been revealed by the Electric Forest community itself.

Known for showcasing a mix of roots, rock and jam-style acts alongside some of dance music’s most talented performers, Electric Forest 2016 has again delivered a diverse lineup of over 100 established and emerging artists performing across 7 breathtaking stages.
