Over the 4th of July weekend tens of thousands of music lovers descended upon the Double JJ Ranch in Western Michigan for the Electric Forest Music Festival. The festival rose from the ashes of the Rothbury Festival that was held on the same site in 2008 and 2009 and Electric Forest had a tough act to follow.

Those who attended the past Rothbury events deemed the venue one of the best festival settings and many were disappointed when last year’s Rothbury was not held. This year long-running jam band The String Cheese Incident recreated the festival as theirs and headlined the final three nights. The lineup featured many well-known acts in the laid back style of SCI, but at night the intensity was turned up a notch with a slew of young electronic acts such as Bassnectar, Skrillex, and Pretty Lights.
