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 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.
