Today, Electric Forest (EF) announced that tickets to its 5th annual music and camping festival have sold out. That sure was quick! It’s no surprise, though, as Electric Forest is one of the most intricately produced festival we’ve been to. That Forest, though! Tickets to the 4 day festival sold out 24-hours after the release of their 2015 lineup, about 3 1/2 months earlier than previous years! If that wasn’t enough to prove people adore the fest, EF’s variety of GOOD LIFE VIP experiences sold out in just minutes of going on sale this past December. The festival takes place June 25-28 of this year in Rothbury, Michigan.

Hailed as one of the “20 legendary world festivals to see in your lifetime,” (Distractify) Electric Forest 2015 promises to deliver the ultimate festival experience with its unparalleled integration of music, art and community.
At the heart of the festival, the Sherwood Forest houses specially commissioned art pieces and creatively themed environments that enhance the natural beauty of the event’s majestic wooded location. These popular creative elements continue to expand for 2015, as will the number and variety of colorful characters and performance artists that fill the grounds bringing smiles to the faces of the many guests they meet.
The lucky folks that purchased Electric Forest’s GOOD LIFE VIP experiences will experience unrivaled amenities and perks, including a variety of onsite lodging options ranging from camping, log cabins to resort-style hotel suites.
