If last year’s lineup for Electric Forest seemed a tad predictable, the more-varied roster of artists for 2024 has plenty of festivalgoers excited about heading back to Rothbury in June.
“Wow, this is probably the best lineup ever,” gushed Jessica LeeAnne Blunt on Facebook.
Madison House Presents announced Wednesday that Pretty Lights, Subtronics, Excision, Everything Always (Dom Dolla & John Summit), Nelly Furtado, Ludacris, Black Tiger Sex Machine, The Disco Biscuits, Psyren (Clozee & LSDream), Umphrey’s McGee, Gigantic Nightmre, Ben Bohmer, Knock2, Charlotte De Witte and The String Cheese Incident will headline the four-day festival at Double JJ Resort June 20-23.
While electronic music superstars continue to dominate the landscape at the festival, the addition of jam-fueled favorites such as Umphrey’s McGee and funk’s Lettuce clearly has excited many regular festivalgoers.“Thank you for giving us some jam: Umphrey’s McGee, Disco Biscuits, Lettuce, Eggy, Dumpstaphunk and, of course, Cheese (String Cheese Incident), wrote fan Jay McCormack on Facebook. “Hope we can get STS9 added in at a later date, but I’m happy with what we have so far.”
Added Cassidy Francesca: “Entirely different than last year. … Can’t wait to experience the complete evolution Electric Forest has to offer. Top-of-the-line artists from all genres. So pumped.”
The lineup announcement of more than 70 acts includes a few with Michigan ties, including Dixon’s Violin and Neil Francis, as well as popular returning artists such as Cannons, Maddy O’Neal and Dumpstaphunk.
“The Forest is home to all the sounds that swirl through our summer,” the festival contended in announcing the first slate of performers.
