Western Michigan's Electric Forest Festival has announced the lineup for its upcoming 2019 edition, set for June 27-30.

The festival's 9th incarnation at Double JJ Ranch will bring in EDM headliners Odesza, Kygo, Bassnectar, and Zed's Dead, along with three performances from Electric Forest's longtime residents, the String Cheese Incident.



The music festival's diverse lineup leans heavily on electronic music but offers more in the realms of funk, folk, and jam bands than years past. Forest favorites STS9, Lettuce, and Twiddle help to diversify the fest's largely DJ-based lineup with some jam band improvisational instrumentation. Meanwhile, acts like Black Tiger Sex Machine, Snails, and NGHTMRE & Slander performing as Gud Vibrations will be present as members of the festival's bass-heavy, headbanging delegation.


The lineup announcement comes shortly after Electric Forest shared that it will return for just one weekend in 2019. In year's past, Electric Forest has hosted the popular four-day-long music festival across two separate weekends.
