This week on the all new FestHype, hosts Steven Rhys & Mike Van Dusen explore the epic yet laregely underrated Electric Forest Festival taking place in Rothbury, MI June 23-26.
Electric Forest Festival which originated as the Rothbury Music Festival, has long standing roots in the music festival community highlighting artists from the genres of electronic, dance, and jam. This year’s notable headliners include Electric Forest regulars (and Steven Rhys’ favorite) The String Cheese Incident, Bassnectar, Major Lazer, and many many more! Those who have had the pleasure of actually attending the festival know there is much more to experience than just the music, as you can roam the forest taking in all the art and the literal “Electric Forest.”
Before diving into the festival we discuss the numerous topics that are on every festival goers mind. This week touching on the local news portrayal of festivals, knowing when to ask for help, and much more!
