The now iconic camping music festival Electric Forest thrown by EDC promoters Insomniac and Madison House Presents has just announced it's lineup for the 2014 edition of the festival taking place over June 26th – 29th. The festival is currently overcoming a minor land issue that was rumored to be SFX doing, but has been confirmed to not have any ties with the EDM conglomerate; the festival is confirmed to be happening in full force and bigger than ever!
This is easily one of TSIS's favorite festivals in the world. We had a blast debuting our TSIS booth at the festival last year that allowed us to meet and hang with a ton of you by the Tripolee stage. We have also had a lot of fun throwing some very special "secret sets" at the festival both in the forest and in the VIP camping. 2 years ago marked the first time Griz and Gramatik played together alongside Dom of Big Gigantic as Big Grizmatik, which as a group made their return to be one of the headliners the following year.
Anyone that has attended knows the overall Electric Forest experience is unprecedented. From the incredible mixture of great musical genres, to the beautiful easy to navigate the Double JJ Ranch Resort, to consistently great people in attendance; it really is in a league of its own that you have to experience to understand.
Although there were a lot of acts we had wished to see on the lineup, it is impossible to not have the greatest time imaginable at Electric Forest.
Stay tuned for with us and Electric Forest for more info including the return of our TSIS booth with artist meet & greets, a special VIP giveaway, and our biggest secret set we have ever organized at the festival!

CounterPoint music festival had it’s first year last summer in 2012 right outside of Atlanta and had a massive lineup featuring Skrillex, Avicii, Pretty Lights and Bassnectar just to give you an idea (see lineup here). Due to some complications with TomorrowLand expanding it’s festival to America with TomorrowWorld and taking over the field where CounterPoint happened. The festival took this year off, and has actually been helping with TomorrowWorld and their Thursday Gathering party, taking place tomorrow.
Counterpoint Music Festival 2014 will be taking place over April 25th – 27th weekend and will be hosted at Kingston Downs, Georgia, right outside of Atlanta. This event will be produced by C3 Presents (Lollapalooza, Austin City Limits) and MCP Presents (Camp Bisco, Buku) so we know quality will not be sacrificed in the least.
We have a tip that the lineup this year is going to rival most lineups in 2014. Mark your calendars now so you don’t miss out on what looks to one of the most exciting festivals next year.
