Fans of Rothbury, Michigan festival Electric Forest have been met with news worthy of celebration. The event producers, Madison House, have had their permit to operate extended for ten more years following the village council's 5-2 vote on the matter.

In addition to the extension, the language of the permit now allows for organizers to add an early arrival day. Revelers have been allowed to enter the grounds on Wednesday in years prior, but 2020 attendees could potentially be granted access as early as Tuesday. 

On the flip side, the village will now collect a surcharge that increases in amount annually but will not exceed $7.50 per ticket. Among other things, it will go towards road repairs from traffic to and from the festival.

Electric Forest was originally called Rothbury Festival and rebranded in 2011. This year's edition saw such EDM headliners as ODESZA, Bassnectar and Zeds Dead.

The 2020 edition of Electric Forest will take place from June 25th-28th. For more information, visit the event website.
