12.34. Electric Forest 2012

February 7, 2012

The Electric Forest seems to be growing year by year. I even have friends from Chicago traveling into see it or ask me about it. The Electric Forest grew out of the Rothbery Music Fest at the Double JJ Resort in Rothbery, MI. In addition to music and arts, the festival is intended to promote sustainability and promote overall improvements to the environment.

The festival takes advantage to all that the Double JJ has to offer from a water park, camping, glow in the dark disc golf, BBQ, horse back riding, and Sherwood Forest. The Sherwood Forest, located in the heart of the festival grounds, is the pulse of Electric Forest. By day, the Sherwood Forest is a place to relax in one of the many hammocks that swing between the trees, explore the art installations sprinkled throughout the woods and meander down paths to discover plenty of surprises. At night, the Sherwood Forest comes alive! Witness the extravagant light display, stumble into surprise performances and parties in the depths of the woods, and gather with friends to enjoy the party. Make sure to check out the Forest Stage with live music and performances day and night, as well as unannounced surprise sets.

The Festival runs Thursday, June 28th thru Sunday, July 1st 2012. This is a festival you are not want to make last minute plans for. You are going to want to either make your reservations to camp or stay at the Double JJ now. Staying in a hotel in Muskegon and driving back forth to Double JJ is not the way to experience this fest.
