Artists are invited to create unique black and white intricate black and white coloring book page designs. Those selected will have their art included in the official Electric Forest Coloring Book that will be sold as official merchandise and whose profits will go towards Music In Schools Program.

Prize Cart Remix

Have you ever stayed at a set after it has ended and heard the infamous “Prize Cart” tune? The original was created by String Cheese Incident’s Kyle Hollingsworth. Now those creative folks have the opportunity to remix the beloved track.

The person with the best remix will win two GA camping tickets to a weekend of their choice and have their track showcased at the festival.


Every month, Forest is partnering with This Song is Sick to select one submission to be the official playlist for the festival. Music lovers are encouraged to submit a curated playlist in the hopes of winning one GA wristband for a weekend of their choosing. April’s theme is “Late Night Edition.”
