As we first reported, Electric Forest is significantly expanding the size of the festival grounds this year, likely using a similar design as the Rothbury Festival, held on the same grounds before Electric Forest’s birth in 2011. A request has also been submitted to increase total capacity to 40,000 attendees, up from 25,000 last year.
