ROTHBURY, MICH. - One of the biggest music festivals in West Michigan is expanding!
Organizers of Electric Forest announced Friday morning the festival will now take place on two back-to-back weekends in 2017.
"After careful and thoughtful consideration, Electric Forest is ready to take an amazing leap into the future," read a release on their website.
The dates will be:
- June 22 through 25
- June 29 through July 2
Electric Forest has taken place at Double JJ Resort in Rothbury for the last six years.
According to the release, the capacity for each weekend will be reduced by approximately 10 percent from 2016.
"Rapid growth of the venue has the potential to undermine the values of The Forest. Instead of moving toward one larger weekend, the most thoughtful choice was the creation of two smaller capacity weekends."
Electric Forest also says some artists will appear on both weekends -- but will perform different sets each performance.
The cost of general admission tickets and "Good Life" weekend passes will remain the same.
Festival organizers say more information will be available this fall.
