The festival has a great blend of electronic and live acts, and some hip-hop thrown in there. Last year we got to hook someone up with a VIP experience, and this year will be doing some more contests. You can be sure to expect This Song Is Sick as there is nothing that could stop us from making it out to the forest once again!
Last year we had the incredible opportunity to host a secret TBA set at Electric Forest on the Saturday night at the Forest Stage which hosted the first performance ever of a super side group Big Grizmatik featuring Dominic Lalli of Big Gigantic, GRiZ, and both members of Gramatik. Grizmatik has since released a single with music video and played some other secret sets and will be one of the headliners at this years SnowBall in Colorado. We also had Alvin Risk and Pierce Fulton play extra dope sets at this secret set. Look out this year for even more secret surprises from This Song Is Sick

My story has changed quite a lot since moving to Boulder, Colorado and starting Thissongissick back in 2010. My name is Nick Guarino and this is Thissongissick.com. We have grown a lot since, but the original goal has stayed the same, making it easier for you to discover sick new music you have never heard before. In high school I would make mix cd's for my friends to show them all the new music I was discovering. Now through Thissongissick, we work with musicians and record labels from all over the world to showcase a variety of freshest electronic, hip-hop, indie, and other fresh genres to a worldwide following that now reaches millions of music lovers over 110+ countries, every single month. Make yourself at home, enjoy countless amazing musicians from a variety of genres and let the sick sounds fill your ears.Enjoy!
We work with the artists to spread their music. Most of the artists choose to give away their music for free to spread it to as many ears as possible. Please support the artists by purchasing tickets to see them live in concert and what music they do have for sale!
