Electric Forest Weekend Tickets and GOOD LIFE VIP Packages are available now (Loyalty Tickets, Early Bird Tickets, and Electric Entry Ticket price-levels are SOLD OUT).

Now in its third year, Electric Forest is reputed for propelling the U.S. festival scene into a brave new era of music and camping festivals. Undeniably known for delivering “the ultimate festival experience,” (IMF Magazine) Electric Forest offers incomparable VIP accommodations, unique on-site features and amenities, astonishing and unparalleled integration of music and art, and a vibe so thick with “camaraderie and freedom…it must be experienced to be appreciated.” (Consequence Of Sound).

At the heart of Electric Forest, the beloved Sherwood Forest is “with no exaggeration at all, the most well produced and artistically inspired area…ever seen at a music festival” (Magnetic Magazine). Showered with state-of-the-art, jaw-dropping light displays, intricate and earthy artful touches, and everything in between, in 2013 the Sherwood Forest is expanding in size for the first time ever. Fans can look forward to more to discover, wonder and wow.

Also in 2013, Electric Forest’s unrivaled GOOD LIFE VIP experience promises even more stellar amenities and perks. From camping and RV spots, to log cabins and homes, to resort hotel-style suites – all located directly on the festival grounds – The GOOD LIFE has something for all budgets and tastes. The festival’s exclusive site – hailed as “THE best place to hold a music festival” (Magnetic Magazine) – offers trails, forests, fields, lakes and beachfronts, and even on-site bars and eateries. In addition, Electric Forest patrons can take advantage of the resort’s many amenities including a 60,000 square foot indoor water park, an 18-hole championship golf course, swimming pools, horseback riding, and more. Visit for GOOD LIFE options and details.

Electric Forest returns in 2013 with new and expanded philanthropic efforts. The festival’s annual Food Drive, hosted each year in partnership with not-for-profit organization Conscious Alliance, was renamed the Roy Price Memorial Food Drivein 2012 to honor cherished Electric Forest neighbor and huge Food Drive supporter, the late Mr. Roy Price. Each year Electric Forest patrons are encouraged to donate non-perishable food items, and are thanked with an exclusive Electric Forest Food Drive poster. To date, Electric Forest has collected and distributed over 17,200 lbs. of food to local communities in need.

Also returning is the Electric Forest Music In Schools Program, where EF partners with local public schools Shelby High School and Montague High School and Middle School to help support music education. In addition to donating much-needed funds (in 2012 the Music In Schools Program donated $10,000.00), each year young musicians from these schools are invited to perform at the festival, providing them with a very exciting opportunity to be part of the show.

A portion of each Electric Forest ticket sale is donated to Conscious Alliance, EF Music In Schools Program and, new this year, to The Kitchen [Community] – a national not-for-profit connecting kids to real food by creating Learning Gardens in schools and community organizations across America.

Electric Forest’s 2013 Plug In Program offers a variety of innovative ways for fans to help shape the Electric Forest experience. Visit the Plug In section of Electric Forest’s website for all the details on how fans can participate in shaping this year’s event.
