The Sherwood Forest
Located in the center of the festival grounds, this is the heat of the festival and separates Electric Forest from every other festival out there.  During the day the forest is a shaded area to relax on hammocks, and sitting areas.  At night the forest comes alive with one of the most spectacular light / art installation you’ll ever see. For the first time, the forest will be expanding this year.

 

Conscience Alliance Food Drive

Conscience Alliance will once again be holding a food drive to benefit the local area.  So far,  Electric Forest has collected and distributed over 17,200 lbs of food to local communities in need.   With a donation of at least 20 non-perishable cans you will receive an Electric Forest Art that Feeds’ 3D Lenticular poster.
