After a slim margin of approval by the Grant Township in a board meeting earlier this week, Electric Forest will officially return to the Rothbury, Michigan next summer from June 25-28, 2015. It was reported that the board meeting involving the decision to allow the permit was a close call with a 3-2 vote in favor of the event.
According to sources, the economic boost and amount of community support involved in this event was too much to override a number of concerns that included traffic congestion, noise complaints, and other various circumstances. The Grant Township has been involved and receiving great exposure and funding from ticket sales from this event and its organizers since 2008. E-Forest is produced by Insomniac Events and Madison House.
