Electric Forest is truly one of the most magical places in the world. You don’t have to spend too much time there to come to that realization. People come from all over the world to experience first hand the magic of the forest – soundtracked by some of the hottest names in dance music.

We picked out 7 of our must-see sets from the upcoming forest weekend. If you see us, come dance. 

LICK

LICK has had an incredible 12 months – from countless of hard-hitting remixes, to an EP released on Zeds Dead’s Deadbeats label – it was only a matter of time before he started popping up on festivals all over – and that’s exactly what’s happening. His 4 pm Set on Thursday is going to be the perfect way to kickstart your Electric Forest weekend with a bang. He has been tweeting non-stop how excited for his set he is – keep your eyes peeled for some after hours set from LICK. 👀
