Over the past weekend, the organizers of Electric Forest gave everyone a treat and announced a preliminary list of artists who will be performing at next year’s festival. On Sunday night in Ann Arbor, Michigan, a random pop up event was hosted at club Necto. Organizers creatively surprised guest with clues hidden throughout indicating artists who would be performing at the event in 2018. They even left a subtle clue on their twitter that something would be happening.
The event was originally tagged as an “Official 2018 Electric Forest Meet Up.” Those who were lucky enough to attend were not only the first to know about the lineup, but also received free wristband to next years festival.
A Reddit user in attendance wrote:
“Throughout the venue there, many posters were on the wall saying “Performer” is playing Electric Forrest 2018. There was a special bar menu with clues to different acts playing. A little burlesque show that revealed some acts. There was a different number on each Men and Women bathroom mirror that if you called, had an artist saying they’re excited to be playing EF2018. The toilet paper had a word scramble all over it revealing an act. There was also a word search projected on the building also revealing some acts.
The night all culminated with a show by Space Jesus!”
The same Reddit thread also posted the artists that are currently confirmed for Electric Forest 2018:
Rufus Du Sol
Karl Densons Tiny Universe
Louis the Child
There are still over 100 artists to be announced so keep an eye out for the rest of the Electric Forest lineup!
