Rothbury welcomes the Electric Forest 2014 this weekend to a sold out crowd, this festival bodes to be a weekend of great music, awesome fun and adventure. This years festival brings the return of The String Cheese Incident as well as Sound Tribe Sector Nine, Moby, Umphres Mcghee, Stephen Marley and a slew of eclectic musical acts sure to please all the travelers this year.
As well as music Electric Forest Festival showcases many artists. The always popular forest that has been growing yearly with incredible lighting and artistic pieces will easily leave fans with memories that will be etched in their minds for years ahead.
Through the Music In Schools Program Electric Forest Festival has been eagerly helping the area including helping build a classroom piano lab, purchase percussion equipment for their marching band, and mainting a music program. Last year the Music In Schools program donated $5000.00 to the Shelby High Marching Band. The marching band will be performing at this years festiva again Saturday afternoon.
Last year Electric Forest Festival’s Roy Price Memorial Food Drive collected and distributed 13,865 meals to local Oceana County Communities almost doubling the amount of donations collected in the festival’s last two years.
