This year's Electric Forest festival in Rothbury, Michigan just completed its fifth year, and its best yet! The festival is known for having countless secret sets and suprises throughout the weekend, and the magnitude of what took place over the four days was quite staggering.
Thissongissick.com have thrown various late night parties in the past, including the first ever Big Grizmatik set (Big Gigantic, Gramatik and Griz together) amongst many more. We had some of the most epic parties this year, from a legendary Skrillex b2b Datsik b2b 12th Planet b2b Snails b2b Crizzly b2b Vaski set on Friday, an epic three and half hour Mr. Carmack set in the Forest on Saturday night, and one of the most unique parties we've ever been apart of.
On the last night of the festival, we went over to General Admission camping to team up with the "Holy Ship Fam" to throw an afterparty on top of an RV consisting of Big Gigantic's Dominic Lalli and Cherub's Jason Heubert both DJing, while Jeremy Salken went in on the drums. This became a make-shift stage, which quickly gathered well over a 1500 people below. They played live versions of some Big G classics and party anthems from Cashmere Cat, Trippy Turtle, Skrillex and more for the truly perfect unexpected ending set to a truly epic festival.
If you were one of the lucky fans to attend this party, you won't be ablt to forget this party that lasted until the sun was beginning to rise and then everyone dispersed for the final time.

Recently the creator of Minecraft and active EDM enthusiast Markus Persson has become a multi billionaire and has been spending his money in some pretty amazing ways. Just earlier this year he bought one of the most outrageous houses in LA and had a house party with Skrillex, Diplo and many others.
Well today we bring you his latest shenanigan, a 20,000 person private party thrown in the middle of Los Angels Memorial Coliseum, under a massive pitched up tent where some of the most epic visuals were projected onto the entire ceiling. He brought out DJ icons Skrillex, Diplo, DJ Snake and even rappers Rae Srremmurd. He did this to celebrate E3, which for those outside of the gaming world is the biggest trade show of the year in gaming with all the newest products getting debuted (Think of it as the SXSW of the gaming world).
Watch below and see a taste of the absolutely insane visuals and hear some unreleased music.

Win Tickets to Sold Out Electric Forest Music Festival & The ThisSongIsSick Artist Meet & Greet SchedulePosted in Contests, Events, News, Uncategorized by chrissy | Tags: Big Gigantic, Contest, Electric Forest, free tickets, Meet and Greet
We couldn't be more excited for one of our favorite festivals of the year, Electric Forest that takes place in Rothbury, Michigan. The festival that's now in it's 5th year is known not only for it's incredibly diverse lineup, but the now infamous Forest setting that it takes place in, and the interactive art installation filled "Sherwood Forest" that you can roam around in and catch unexpected surprises. The festival sold out under 24 hours after revealing it's lineup this year. We have a very special opportunity to send a lucky winner and their friend to the festival with not only tickets but they will even get to hang out with Big Gigantic at the private Artist's Pool area, get to watch them on stage during their set and even get to skip the line at some of the artist meet and greets. Enter the CONTEST BELOW
This year's year includes acts Bassnectar, Skrillex, Kaskade, Flume, The String Cheese Incident, Big Gigantic, Carnage, Break Science, Borgeous, Claude VonStroke, Datsik, Flux Pavilion, G-Eazy, Gramatik, ODESZA, Alison Wonderland, Galantis, SNAILS, Crizzly, Matoma amongst many many more.
For the 3rd year in a row, TSIS will have our booth set up at the Tripolee stage where we will be running meet and greets with some of the festival's best artists. This year we'll be hosting Galantis and Borgeous
Last night completed the second exciting day of music of Governor's Ball Music Fesival which takes place annually in New York City. The 4 year old festival has quickly become one of the leading events in the country, blending a perfect balance of some of the coolest acts on the rise along with mainstream icons.
Australian's latest tastemaker to explode globally is Flume, who had one of the most anticipated sets of the weekend. With this being the very first date of his impressive American summer music festival tour, and an incredibly overdue followup album that is expected to be done or near completion, the hype couldn't be bigger for him to preview some unreleased music.
Well, he started his set with a roaring, packed crowd as the sun was on its way down. He played a variety of the hit songs from his first album alongside popular remixes. Then he let the crowd know that he had something new for us; he previewed a song that could only be described as his take on house music. We have a near 3 minute video of the new song that has some incredible signature melodies and infectious dance grooves. It sounded like it had some inspiration from his future classic label mate Hayden James.
He also played an epic remix of Notorious B.I.G. that I can only assume he made as a summer festival weapon.
The last track of the evening was another new one, yet this sounded far, far different then anything we have ever heard from Flume. This sounded like his version of a festival trap anthem. (And I never thought I'd say trap anthem and Flume in the same sentence.) From the outrageous tribal sounding 808s and unreal drums and screeching synths, this is totally a new side of Flume. We have an almost 2 minute video of this track as well.
Watch the videos below, and do not miss Flume as he is playing a large amount of festivals and headline shows all summer. We will keep you posted on any news regarding all of the originals he played.

The added full symphony alongside his live band made these shows something very special for all those who were able to attend. We get a glimpse of these today with a just released recap video of last year's two nights at the legendary ampitheatre.
