The String Cheese Incident, Major Lazer, Bassnectar Top Lineup At Sixth Annual Electric Forest
February 3, 2016 at 12:32 PM (PT)
THE STRING CHEESE INCIDENT, MAJOR LAZER and BASSNECTAR top the lineup just announced for INSOMNIAC's sixth annual ELECTRIC FOREST music and camping festival taking place in ROTHBURY, MI, JUNE 23rd-26th. The festival sold out earlier than ever, a mere two weeks after tickets went on sale. In line with EF’s strong community spirit, the festival surprised the EF community by inviting them to announce the 2016 lineup first.
EF2016 Lineup Invitations, each revealing one or more artists on this summer’s eagerly awaited lineup, were mailed to a handful of randomly selected ticket-holders. With mail deliveries throughout the day, new artists were continually shared on social media with the hashtag #EF2016Reveal, creating a level of interaction between a festival and its fans. Forest HQ followed the reveals and collected many of the posts here. By 9p (ET), the entire EF16 lineup had been revealed by the ELECTRIC FOREST community itself.
