Electric Forest Announces Phase 2 of Lineup
The 4th anniversary of the Electric Forest Music Festival is creeping up on us festivalites. I dont know about you, but the anticipation in my heart grows with every day that slowly ticks by, getting closer to June 26. Lucky for us, as the day count slowly approaches zero, Insomniac keeps fans eagerly waiting by continuing to announce new artists that will be taking the stage this June.
The lineup for the festival this year is already one for the books, providing a great mix of EDM artists and jam bands, something that Electric Forest is notorious for. In early February, over 80 artists were announced as the first phase of the lineup. Festival-goers alike look at the lineup and it sends their heads rolling. This year’s headliners include The String Cheese Incident (playing three shows), STS9 (playing two shows), Zeds Dead, The Glitch Mob, Zedd and others, upholding a strong mix of both EDM producers and jam band.
Now, just a week ago, Insomniac released the second phase of artists that will be attending this year. Among this list is Moby (doing a dj set), Schoolboy Q, The Floozies, Kastle and more. The most notable addition to the lineup is Schoolboy Q, classified as a hip-hop artist, will break the EDM-jam band flavor that Electric Forest is known for. Fans are hopeful for a third phase of the lineup, but Electric Forest 2014 is shaping up to be one of the best festivals of the summer.
