After what felt like the longest wait ever, we finally have the dates for Electric Forest 2019. The festival went to all social media platforms to debut the announcement. The biggest part of the announcement? The coveted two-weekend festival will be back to one in 2019.
The festival plans on going back to one weekend in order to “protect and curate the grounds of Electric Forest for generations to come.” The post goes on to say that the impact of two weekends on the Forest needs to be reduced.
Being in such a beautiful, natural environment, it's great to see a festival that cares so much about its impacts.
The lineup hasn't been released yet, but it's only a matter of time now that we have a date set. Will you be visiting the Forest in 2019?

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, #ElectricForest will be one magical weekend in 2019. See You In The Forest, June 27 – 30, 2019! ⚡️🌲 #EF2019
