As you may have heard, the crazy gang at Electric Forest are revealing the lineup to the festival, which is probably the most consistent in terms of only skewing to the youth. If you're not in your teens or twenties you will not even know who half the artists are, which is how this sort of stuff is supposed to work.

In keeping with that, the performers are being slowly revealed over the course of the day on a sub-Reddit thread. There's a lot also happening on the Twitters. The only more apt way would be to somehow broadcast the lineup via Minecraft, or underneath the caps of various radical new flavors of Mountain Dew.

We're stoked that Egyptian Lover is part of this! And the Preservation Hall Jazz Band gets our vote for "most WTF" moment in this whole zany and kooky lineup.
