Electric Forest just blew us away by announcing their lineups for Weekends 1 and 2 in 2018!


Electric Forest returns to Rothbury, Michigan once again for two uniquely epic editions of the festival. The First Weekend is set to take place from June 21 – 24, while the Second Weekend is set for June 28 – July 1.

Coming off an absolutely stellar edition this past June and having already announced the EF Wish Machine program this year’s edition of the festival, the hype for Electric Forest 2018 grew to an immense size. Forest HQ teased a lineup reveal earlier this month by releasing some of the artists playing this year through hints at a show in Ann Arbor, Michigan, but now the lineups for both weekends has been unleashed.

Headlining both weekends of Electric Forest will be The String Cheese Incident, Bassnectar, GRiZ with a live band, RÜFÜS DU SOL, and ZHU. Additionally, the sub-headliners on both weekends are just as stacked with Bonobo (Live), Chromeo, Cut Copy, Malaa, and more.

Electric Forest’s First Weekend in 2018 will feature exclusive headliner Galantis, along with a solid sub-headliner list that includes JAUZ, Keys N Krates, Lil Dicky, Green Velvet, and Washed Out.

The Second Weekend of Electric Forest 2018 has a series of exclusive artists that will blow any music lover away. Additional headliners of Marshmello and Testpilot will be bringing the two internet adversaries to the festival on the same weekend. The sub-headliners are epic in their own right, as Datsik, Get Real, REZZ, and Superduperkyle will also be serenading crowds.

The undercard for both weekends, exclusive or not, is filled to the brim with artists from a wide variety of genres and definitely will get any music lover interested in attending this year’s edition. Loyalty tickets for Electric Forest 2018 go on sale next month, so make sure to stay tuned for more updates on the festival!

Grant Gilmore’s authoritative voice as a media professional lends credibility not common to EDM journalism. As the founder of EDM Identity he has effectively raised the bar on coverage of the past decade’s biggest youth culture phenomenon. After ten years of working for nonprofit organization Pro Player Foundation, Gilmore launched EDM Identity as a media outlet offering accurate informative coverage of the rave scene and electronic music as a whole. Although they cover comprehensive topic matter, they have taken special care in interviewing the likes of Armin van Buuren, Adventure Club, Gorgon City, Lane 8 and Afrojack. In addition to household names, they have also highlighted unsung heroes of the industry through their ID Spotlight segment. Whether he’s covering it or not, you can expect to find Grant Gilmore attending the next big electronic music event. To find out what’s next on his itinerary, follow him via the social links below.
