Electric Forest 2020, which initially sold out in record time, has officially been canceled. The celebrated EDM festival, which takes place in Rothbury, Michgan, was primed for its landmark 10th edition from June 25th to 28th this summer.

Electric Forest organizers published a full statement on their website, which you can read in full below. They also included information about official wristband exchanges, ticket transfers, refunds, camping information, and the Loyalty Program.

Forest Family,

After weeks of discussions, input and direction from state and local authorities, and with a full focus on the safety of our community, we have made the decision to look ahead and reunite in 2021.

Sit back from your screen for a moment, close your eyes, and imagine the energy when gates finally open to celebrate the 10th chapter of Electric Forest. Imagine the moment music begins to fill the air. Imagine positive vibrations at levels we have never felt in our lifetimes. It will be an immense moment of celebration, and preparing for that energy will keep Forest HQ working tirelessly until opening day.

In times like these we are grateful to stand strong with you as the Forest Family. We are also eternally thankful to the family members who come together to create so much each year. This includes the artists, actors, builders, food and craft vendors, law enforcement, medical partners, operations teams, production teams, supply partners, and so many others who individually and collectively make Electric Forest so very special and unique.

We are stronger as a community than we are as individuals. Knowing that we will all gather again soon will remain a bright spark and a guiding light—and we will build our moment together.
