Electric Forest has announced the dates for its 8th annual event in Rothbury, Michigan for 2018. The festival will once again be held over two weekends, on June 21-24 and June 28-July 1, 2018. Once again, the festival will have two distinct lineups for each weekend (with a little bit of overlap).

In addition to the announcement, Electric Forest unveiled a new fan participation initiative – The EF Wish Machine – encouraging the Forest Family to spread positivity, and offering the greatest evidence yet that Forest dreams really do come true.

According to the EF website, The Wish Machine is a gesture of keen hope in a time when many of us wish for change in the world:

“Kindness, radical acceptance, and good deeds are why The Forest is special. These values create freedom to discover ourselves, celebrate our beautiful differences and our unique gifts.

Goodness starts as a seed. Do you have an idea for a good deed or an inspiration for an act of human kindness?… What you choose to do is up to you.

HQ will choose some efforts to travel full circle, and The Forest’s reward can be big or small. What is your daydream of Electric Forest 2018?… Whatever you hope will happen is fair game.”

To participate in The Wish Machine, fans must submit their Forest Dream along with what they’re willing to do to have their wish granted. For example, “If I make sandwiches for the homeless every day until EF2018, then Electric Forest will allow me to be on stage with my favorite headliner!”

Fans can also visit EF’s Wish Machine online to see the kind, outrageous, and inspirational wishes of all their fellow Forest Family. Electric Forest will grant wishes by April of 2018. The Wish Machine is live at ElectricForestFestival.com/wish.

2018 artist lineup, ticket info and on sale dates are coming soon.
