Electric Forest has announced 25 new additions to their lineup along with this year\’s curated events, only adding to the anticipation of what is sure to be a can\’t miss festival this summer.

The highlights of the new additions are Wale (rap), Galantis (electro house), Brodinski (techno), Damage-Funk, and Four Tet. The six curated events are Future Classic, Carl Cox & Friends, Bass Rush, Deep in the Forest, Communion, and Lowtemp.

Future Classic will be held at Sherwood Court, the biggest stage in the Forest, located in the back of the festival grounds. Flume, who was one of the first acts rumored to be playing this year, will headline the stage. Other highlights include experimental trap\’s #1 man, Mr. Carmack, and Lido, who performed last year as Trippy Turtle.

Carl Cox & Friends will take over Triploee one day of the weekend. Following an awesome time at Mega Structure at Ultra Music Festival Miami, I could not be more excited for Carl Cox\’s custom stage in the Forest. Be sure to catch BBC Radio staple Pete Tong, DJ Mag\’s 2001 DJ of the Year John Digweed, and the legend himself, Carl Cox. With long sets and what\’s sure to be a great crowd, this is the perfect stage to wander over to when you get separated from your group or just feel like exploring the Forest.

Returning from last year is Bass Rush, once again being held at Triploee. It will be hard to match the energy that Excision, Bro Safari, 12th Planet, and more brought last year, but this is still sure to be a RIDICULOUS experience. Flux Pavilion, Datsik, Snails, and Crizzly will all bring their dirtiest songs and exclusives to the Forest. Bass Rush isn\’t just in your face dubstep; Minnesota, Koan Sound, and Mt. Eden are all performing too. I also recommend seeing Carnage – he might get a lot of hate in today\’s scene, but the man knows how to play for a festival crowd and throw a party.

Also back from last year is Deep in the Forest, this time at the tiny Forest Stage and known as \”Crew Love.\” My experience seeing MK, Art Department, and more at Triploee last year changed my taste in music and EDM forever. It\’s smaller this year, but I still can\’t wait to be in the heart of Sherwood Forest dancing to the likes of Soul Clap and Nick Monaco.

Lowtemp will also be held at the Forest Stage. According to the Forest\’s webiste, Lowtemp is an independent \”created by artists, for artists\” record label, led by Gramatik. The last event is Communion, located at the small Observatory Stage, also located in Sherwood Forest. Electric Forest describes Communion as the project started by Ben Lovett (Mumford and Sons), Kevin Jones (Bear\’s Den), and producer Ian Grimble. Chicago\’s own Autograf will headline the stage.

This is just the beginning of what to expect from the Forest this year. Be sure to check out the rest of the lineup here. Can\’t wait to see you guys there. If it\’s your first year, check out this complete guide from Reddit.
