The Crew Behind Electric Forest Just Announced a Brand New Festival
Madison House Presents, one of the key forces behind Electric Forest, just received approval for a new festival in Colorado.
The new fest hasn't been named yet, but Madison House recently received the permit required to throw their new 20,000 person festival near Buena Vista, Colorado. MHP will be organizing and backing the event, along with backing from Jed Selby, the owner of the 274 acre ranch where it will take place. It's scheduled for August 4-7, and now that the permit has been approved, we expect to see the initial lineup announced very soon.
Though discussions about the festival have mostly emphasized jam, bluegrass and other acoustic styles, Madison House has an impressive list of EDM acts on their roster, including Bassnectar, Illenium, Black Tiger Sex Machine, Minnesota, Grandtheft, and Liquid Stranger. So we are holding out hope that we'll see some great electronic acts on the lineup. (Though to be fair, Bassnectar is hosting his own festival in Colorado this summer, so it's unlikely he would make an appearance.)
We'll follow up with more information as it becomes available!
