Electric Forest 2023 unearths quaking phase one line-up: ODESZA, Illenium, Zeds Dead, Above & Beyond, plus many more
It’s that time of year when Christmas comes a bit early for the Forest Family. Every early December, Electric Forest HQ releases its following year’s initial phase line-up just ahead of the first round of ticket sales. The adored music, camping, and arts festival held in Rothbury, Michigan, welcomes back a usual litany of acclaimed musical headliners for the four-night gathering.
On Thursday, ODESZA, Jamie xx, and SOFI TUKKER will kick the event off, with Illenium, Gryffin, Lane 8, and Ganja White Night cycling in for night two. On Saturday, Zeds Dead, Chris Lake, and Chromeo will headline, alongside the sweet musings of The String Cheese Incident. Of course, there will be two Cheese Incidents throughout the weekend, with Above & Beyond, REZZ, Goose, and Madeon filling Sherwood with a symphony of sounds for the final evening.
Additional Forest favorites return, including Gorgon City for a much-anticipated reunion. New artists 070 Shake, MEUTE, Danielle Ponder, and ISOxo will appear for their first visit. For the bassheads, don’t miss PEEKABOO, Jantsen, Space Wizard, Black Carl!, CE favorite Zingara, Wakaan mainstays Champagne Drip, Freddy Todd, and more. Also not to miss: Apashe will bring a live brass ensemble, along with SVDDEN DEATH PRESENTS: VOYD.
After the reunion of a lifetime in 2022, Electric Forest returns with an impressive lineup of Electric Forest favorites, acclaimed headliners, and innovative emerging artists, promising to be an unforgettable weekend in the enchanted Sherwood Forest.
