Electric Forest brings thousands of EDM fans from across the country deep into the woods of Rothbury, Michigan. This year, the festival takes place the last two weekends of June, the first weekend is the 21st-24th and the second weekend is the 28th-July 1st. The festival is known to bring together some of the biggest names in the EDM scene with artists like Marshmello, Galantis, Bassnectar, and San Holo this year alone. Electric Forest also takes pride in offering an internship program specifically for veterans. Every year, veterans can apply for paid opportunities taking part in the logistical process of running the festival. The program has been in place since 2013, and every year more and more veterans get involved. Program organizers believe that the purpose and sense of community reinforced at the festival helps veterans with service related injuries. Here are some testimonials of participants from the Electric Forces in 2014.
Applications for Electric Forces are due May 16th, more information about this years program can be found here.
