If you’re going to Electric Forest 2017, chances are you’re only thinking about Electric Forest this week. While the lineup is large and daunting, we tried to narrow down a few of your selections for the weekend.
Nero is arguably one of the best groups in all of electronic music. Their monumental album Welcome Reality from 2010 was, for a lot of people, an introduction of EDM to the new wave of dance music fans. With the singles “Promises,” and “Crush on You,” among others, Nero became a staple in the world of dance music. The only problem: they don’t tour that often around here. So go see them.
This artist is gaining a large fan base, and fast. His chilled-out, melodic bass music is reminiscent of Seven Lions, but unique in its own way. Don’t be surprised when Illenium breaks through to main stream music in the next year of two, so get your chance to see him now.
Just do it.
Liquid Stranger b2b Space Jesus
Somehow, dubstep rebranded itself as Riddim and these two DJs are leading the pack of the re-polished genre. With the hype among these two bass DJs, this is bound to be a popular choice for many of the forest fam.
String Cheese Incident
In case you’re new here, no, this is not an out of place booking. The String Cheese Incident has had long standing ties to Electric Forest, since before it was even called Electric Forest (shout out Rothbury Festival). The jam band plays forest every single year, so default, you must attend a performance.
