Back in its 6th consecutive year, New Brunswick’s Future Forest will drape itself across the lush trees and riverside at Albrights Corner, inviting attendees to immerse themselves in a musical wilderness. The outdoor camping arts and electronic music festival was created in 2012, as a means of raising funds for DJ Jay Hamilton, who was diagnosed with cancer. Future Forest proudly embraces the perspective that there are no spectators at the event, but rather participants who in some way contribute to the overall experience.
Here’s our top 5 reasons why you should attend Future Forest!
