Returning to Rothbury, Michigan from June 25-28, 2015, the 5th annual Electric Forest Festival has announced plans for a 2015 curated event series as well as a slew of major lineup additions.
Meticulously placed within the Sherwood Forest, the perfect backdrop eloquently accompanies the weekend soundtrack, which is full of diverse electronic music acts. The annual music and camping festival, which sold out this past February in record time, has just announced 25 new additions to the 2015 festival roster.
Madison House Presents and Insomniac Events are bringing The Curated Events Series, which will showcase a number of additional artists across various stages at the Double JJ Ranch. In an effort to expand the 2015 Curated Event Series, Electric Forest has teamed with curated partners Future Classic, Carl Cox & Friends, Bassrush, Crew Love, Communion, and Lowtemp.
New artists added to the lineup include Wale, Galantis, Brodinski, Dam-Funk, Four Tet, The Fungineers, and many others. These artists join the already impressive list of artists set to perform including The String Cheese Incident (performing 3 shows), BASSNECTAR, Skrillex, Kaskade, Flume, Big Gigantic, Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros, Joe Russo’s Almost Dead, Yonder Mountain String Band, Odesza, Paul Oakenfold, Lotus, Carnage, Carl Cox, G-Eazy, Flux Pavilion, Seun Kuti, Shpongle (Simon Posford DJ Set), Phantogram, Gramatik, Galactic with Macy Gray, and many more artists. The complete list of artists announced for 2015 can be seen HERE.

Future Classic – a record label, artist management team, touring agency, and music publisher out of Sydney, Australia – will bring a sample of groundbreaking sounds from around the world to EF’s Sherwood Court stage.

Bassrush returns to Electric Forest’s Tripolee Stage showcasing a variety of bass music styles and artists. Since the ’90s, the Insomniac sub-brand has evolved from its strictly drum & bass roots to include dubstep and other bass-oriented genres. The goal of Bassrush is to provide a platform to showcase bass music the way it should be experienced: with massive sound and full scale production.
Featuring Soul Clap, Wolf + Lamb, Midnight Magic (Live), Life on Planets (Live), Nick Monoco (Live) Slow Hands (Live)
EF’s Deep in The Forest curated event returns to The Forest Stage, this year presented by Crew Love. Born in Brooklyn, New York, Crew Love started as a concept based around three main ingredients; good peeps, great music and non-stop party vibes.
Featuring Autograf, Teemid, Kevin Garrett, Joseph, Delta Spirit, Devon Baldwin, Pan Astral
London-based outfit Communion, created by Ben Lovett (Mumford & Sons), Kevin Jones (Bear’s Den), and producer Ian Grimble, takes over The Observatory stage for one night. EF’s Communion curated event is inspired by the Communion Residency – a monthly showcase that provides artists with a platform for discovery across multiple genres and cities including NYC, DC, Philadelphia, Nashville, Chicago, Minneapolis, Kansas City, Louisville, & Rock Island.
Featuring Gibbz, Russ Liquid, Adam Deitch (DJ Set), Freddy Todd, Branx
Launched by Forest favorite, DJ/Producer Gramatik, Lowtemp is an independent record label “created by artists for artists.” Look for Lowtemp to heat up The Forest Stage.
