Electric Forest returns to one-weekend format.


By Allison Scarbrough, Editor.

ROTHBURY – Electric Forest, the gigantic music festival that attracts 50,000 or more people from across the country and beyond, is downsizing from a two-weekend format to a one-weekend event in 2019.

The festival, which takes place at the Double JJ Resort, offered a two-weekend format the previous two years in 2017 and 2018.

The 2019 festival is scheduled for June 27-30.

Festival producers made the following announcement on the EF website:

“During the next year, the Electric Forest grounds will see many exciting improvements that include upgraded landscapes, areas with new grass, and infrastructure improvements across the site. Most importantly, a new multi-year Sherwood Forest conservation plan will take effect.

Protecting and curating the grounds of Electric Forest for generations to come is important to all of the Forest Family. The impact that comes with two weekends will need to be reduced for the new improvements to take hold.

With conservation and longevity in mind, Electric Forest will be one magical weekend in 2019.”

Wristbands and lodging packages go on sale Friday, Dec. 7, at noon.

The 2019 event will be the ninth consecutive Electric Forest Festival, which started back in 2011. ROTHBURY, a similar festival, took place at the Double JJ in 2008 and 2009. There was no festival in 2010.
