Electric Forest Music Festival Plug-In Program Kicks Off
If you have been before, then you know that Electric Forest offers a laughable number of free tickets, but you have to work for them. Electric Forest Music Festival’s Plug-In program kicks off with the Forest Ninja Challenge as well as the first announcement of Forest art.
The Pulse Installation is a concept of reflection, not just any, but the reflection of the energy of the people. There will be a 15 foot cube suspended in the tree tops, containing over 7000 LED lights activated by multiple sensors throughout the forest. The team responsible for this mammoth creation are from Hypnopompic based out of a collective in Louisville, Kentucky.
All that you really need to know about the Forest Ninja Challenge is that if you win, you will receive VIP tickets as well as a hot air balloon ride over Electric Forest with one of EDM’s godfathers, the guys from Glitch Mob. This isn’t just your average contest with one entry. Conscious Alliance is putting this on, and they want to drop some knowledge on the participants. In order to earn entries, participants can like on Facebook and follow on Twitter, watch a video about Conscious Alliance’s Art that Feeds program, read a web page, or even just donate. Each action awards different entry numbers, so make sure to optimize any chance at winning by completing all 16 actions.
The Untz Challenge is still going, and it ends April 25th. The challenge is a collective of artists who entered in music for the chance to tour from coast to coast playing sets at 7 different music festivals. This is the ultimate foot-in-the-door competition for musical artists. Show support or enter here and find out more about the contest.
Don’t forget to grab your tickets! The regular weekend price is still set at $264.50, and there are plenty of other options that can make this experience seem like it is down the street from your own house, so be sure to explore all of your options.
