Electric Forest took home the trophy for best production design, and the “Forest Family” was named best fan community.
The FestX Awards are hosted by Everfest and XLIVE to recognize the world’s best festival creators and communities. Fifty-seven festival finalists in 13 categories were selected after a month-long public voting process, and a panel of industry expert judges determined the overall winners.
Other finalists in the best production design category included Bestival, Electric Zoo, Lightning in a Bottle, and Secret Garden Party. Best fan community finalists included Holy Ship’s “ShipFam,” Bonnaroo’s “Bonnaroovians,” EDC’s “Headliners,” and RuPaul DragCon.
