Over 40 new acts join the Electric Forest 2018 line up

As summer grows evermore near and the Forest Family begins preparation for both weekends of adventure ahead in Rothbury, collaboration is key – and with that in mind, these additions to the 2018 lineup seem especially fitting.

We’ll witness the debut of a brand new live band experience with the BOOGIE T.RIO (LIVE BAND)’s first ever performance during the Second Weekend. We’ll host TENNIS JACKET & STAR KITCHEN, new collaborative projects from Marc Brownstein of the Disco Biscuits. Members of Umphrey’s McGee, Thievery Corporation and Digital Tape Machine will come together as SUPERNATURAL BEINGS. Plus, a member of the Forest Family who was moved to Plug In and remix the now infamous Prize Cart theme from 2017 will get his chance to take the stage…
