Each year, the end of June marks a very special occasion. Electric Forest, an electronic music festival held in Rothbury, MI, brings together 20,000+ people from all around the country to enjoy three days and four nights of music, art and great people. This all takes place in a magical land know as the Sherwood Forest, which needs to be seen to be believed. Featuring headliners such as The String Cheese Incident, EOTO, Big Gigantic, Bassnectar and STS9, the lineup is sure to get your any music lover excited.
If dubstep and electronic music isn’t quite your cup of tea, don’t fret, there are plenty of other festival options in the midwest and surrounding areas to keep you satisfied. Hoxeyville Music Festival, located just outside of Cadillac, MI, is a bit more mellow than Electric Forest. Bringing in just 2,000-3,000 festival goers, Hoxeyville is a place to sit back, relax and enjoy some incredible bluegrass and rock and roll. Headliners this year included The Mickey Hart Band, Bruce Hornsby & The Noisemakers, Greensky Bluegrass, Seth & May and 7 Walkers.
