For the past two years, Electric Forest in Michigan has spanned two weekends. This is a testament to the popularity of the festival itself, as well as the sheer number of artists it brings each year. Next year, however, the festival will be returning to one weekend.
In a statement posted to social media by the festival earlier today, it is explained:
During the next year the Electric Forest grounds will see many exciting improvements that include upgraded landscapes, areas with new grass, and infrastructure improvements across the site. Most importantly, a new multi-year Sherwood Forest conservation plan will take effect.
Protecting and curating the grounds of Electric Forest for generations to come is important to all of the Forest Family. The impact that comes with two weekends will need to be reduced for the new improvements to take hold.
With conservation and longevity in mind, Electric Forest will be one magical weekend in 2019.
While this is sure to be a shame to many, next year’s event will likely be a more “intimate” event because of the change. Electric Forest 2019 is scheduled for June 27-30.
