Electric Forest receives mass gathering permit approval for 2015 festival

Electric Forest organizers received approval by the Grant Township for a mass gathering permit for next year’s festival, set for June 25-28, 2015 in Rothbury, Mich.

The Oceana County Press revealed the permit passed with a 3-2 board approval at last night’s meeting. The permit passed by the same narrow margin the previous two years. Opponents cite noise and traffic congestion, while supporters note the economic boost the area receives as well as community outreach efforts and donations by organizers.

This will be the fifth year for the annual festival, which features a mixture of electronic and jam-band talent at the Double JJ Ranch.

Although there were reports last year that Electric Forest could lose its home, a 10-year deal between property owner and festival organizers was reached earlier this year.

Tickets and lineup information for Electric Forest 2015 is expected to be revealed in the coming weeks.

Electric Forest is produced by Madison House Presents, AEG Live, and Insomniac Events.
