The fascinating origin story behind one of the world's most beloved music festivals, Electric Forest, will soon be revealed.

A new documentary titled A Million Shining Lights - 10 Years Of Electric Forest recaps some of the countless fan and artist experiences that have made this legendary, Rothbury-based electronic music fest the phenomenon it is today.

The documentary scratches the surface level details of how exactly one of EDM'S most highly regarded festival experiences came to find a home at the Double JJ Resort. The plot of land that organizers were pitched was spacious, but densely populated with trees and foliage, which was initially seen as a drawback to the viewing experience. However, Electric Forest proprietors saw the potential in the intimate location and wholly integrated the natural landscape into the experience.

A Million Shining Lights - 10 Years Of Electric Forest also includes the perspectives of some of the festival's many performers, including Louis The Child and 12th Planet, and GRiZ, who expressed having developed a special attachment to the experience which keeps them coming back year after year.
