Electric Forest Adds Dillon Francis & Flume to 2017 Lineup
The hardest choice you’ll have to make this year? Which weekend of Electric Forest 2017 you’ll be attending.
The Rothbury, Michigan electronic dance music festival declared its plans for a two weekend expansion earlier in 2016, a decision indicative not only of the festival’s continuous success in attracting dance music lovers worldwide, but in its pledge to bring an even larger and diverse array of talent to the “forest.” The first weekend of Electric Forest claims June 22-25th, naturally to be followed by its second weekend on June 29-July 2nd.
Electric Forest’s initial announcement of its intended 2017 lineup did not disappoint, featuring the talent of Above & Beyond, Odesza, DJ Snake, Bassnectar, Claude VonStroke, and Oliver Heldens among various other prominent DJs and producers.
Tickets to the festival, now entering its seventh year of existence, originally went on sale on November 29, 2016, but continue to remain available for purchase. We don’t anticipate, however, that tickets will long be available, especially in light of Electric Forest’s recent announcement concerning the two newest talents to join the lineup. The festival’s addition of “Bruk Bruk” DJ, Dillon Francis—who will perform both weekends of Electric Forest—and Australian artist, Flume—who will perform strictly on the second weekend of the festival—is sure to drive ticket sales in the coming weeks.
Festival season may indeed be several months away, but as per that old expression, the early bird gets the festival ticket--er, worm.
