My story of this past weekend is one to tell. I went to Electric Forest, with no expectations whatosever in my head. I wanted to be open-minded. I just knew there were certain artists that I had to see.
To my surprise, it wasn't all about the music. Don't get me wrong, music was in plentiful supply, but there was more to this festival than any other I had heard of or been to before.
I noticed that people from all over the U.S. were in attendance at EF. I can't guarantee all 50 states, but it was pretty close to that. I even met some Canadians that made the trip across country lines to attend this festival in Rothbury, Mich.
I would like to call Electric Forest today's Woodstock. If Woodstock had the technology we do now, I wouldn't see much difference. Many may say lots of hippies were there. That may be true in some ways, but everyone was there as an individual. Everyone was themselves coming for the music and the experience.
