Rothbury veterans and live music pioneers The String Cheese Incident will headline all three nights, along with fellow headliners such as DJ Tiesto, Bassnectar, Pretty Lights, Edward Shapre & The Magnetic Zeros, Shpongle and Stephen Marley.

This year's festival features an elclectic lineup of artists from various genres, including REO Speedwagon, Kaskade, Galactic, Railroad Earth, JJ Grey & Mofro, Skrillex, Karl Denson's Tiny Universe, Toubab Krewe, Lettuce, Beats Antique and many more.

String Cheese Incident's side projects - Emmitt Nershi Band and EOTO - will also be playing sets during the event.

Hosted at the one-of-a-kind Double JJ Resort in Rothbury, Michigan, Electric Forest is graced with one of the country's most beloved festival sites. The unique site offers trails, forests, fields, lakes and beach fronts, and even on-site lodginig, bars and eateries.

Along with a killer lineup and an amazing natural space to call "home" for a few days, the festival will be packed with some serious attractions. Located in the heart of the festival grounds, the Sherwood Forest is one of the most unique trademarks of Electric Forest. By day, the area is a place to relax in one of the many hammocks that swing between the trees and explore the art installations that are sprinkled throughout the woods. At night, Sherwood Forest comes alive with extravagant light displays between the trees and is the perfect place to stumble into surprise performances and parties in the depth of the woods.

Festival patrons can also take advantage of the resort's 60,000 square foot indoor water park, an 18-hole championship golf course, swimming pools, horseback riding and more.

The festival's GOOD LIFE VIP experience in unrivaled when it comes to special treatment. For patrons of all budgets and tastes, the GOOD LIFE offers amenities from camping and RV spots, to log cabins and homes, to resort hotel-style suites - all located on the festival grounds. And as always, general admission weekend tickets include a four-day festival pass and onsite camping/parking.
