String Cheese Incident Announces Line-Up for The Electric Forest Festival

String Cheese Incident has announced the line-up for the first Electric Forest Festival.  The festival will take place on the same site as the Rothbury Festival did a few years ago and it will feature a wide variety of artists with a focus on the worlds of Jam and Electroinca.  While String Cheese will perform three shows during the festival, Tiesto, Bassnectar, Pretty Lights, Edward Sharpe & The Magnetic Zeros, Shpongle, Railroad Earth, and Karl Denson’s Tiny Universe will also be featured performers.  The initial line-up is below.

The festival will also feature several of the Rothbury festival’s attractions, including the enchanted The Sherwood Forest. In addition, Electric Forest will offer access to the The Gold Rush Water Park, the Thoroughbred Golf Club, Big Wildcat Lake and horseback riding opportunities.

As an added bonus for some, REO Speedwagon will perform the “1st Annual Saturday Afternoon Special!”

Tickets will be available starting March 5th at an initial price of $199.  After the initial quantity sells-out the price will jump to $239.50.  Tickets are available here.

Who Is Timothy Dwenger

Music has always been a part of my life. It probably all started listening to old Grateful Dead, Peter Paul & Mary, and Simon & Garfunkel records that my parents had, but it wasn't long before they were taking me to concerts like Starship, Crosby, Stills & Nash, and Huey Lewis & The News. I got the bug to write about music after reviewing an Eric Clapton concert for a creative writing project in high school but didn't really take it up seriously until 2002. Since then I have published countless articles in The Marquee Magazine and done some work for, SPIN Magazine, and various other outlets. I started Listen Up Denver! as a way to share the music information that is constantly spilling out of my head with people who care. Please enjoy!
