two-year run before tanking and sitting out last year.
Now comes the Electric Forest Festival at the Double JJ Resort, with
attractions including a 60,000-square-foot Gold Rush Water Park and The
Sherwood Forest where concert-goers can hang their hammocks and enjoy art

String Cheese Incident as headliners with other acts including REO
Speedwagon, Tiesto, bassnectar, Pretty Lights, Stephen Marley, Railroad
Earth, Edward Sharpe & The Magnetic Zeros and at least 20 other bands.
Weekend tickets are $239 plus fees, with camping available. See
