One of the pioneer touring electronic festivals GlowFest who has had acts such as Pretty Lights, Deadmau5, Hardwell, Porter Robinson, Big Gigantic, and countless other top acts have gone under some serious changes and grown as a company. They are now called RECESS and are in their terms a "Music & Ideas Festival". The second edition of the new event will be taking place at Michigan State University in East Lansing, Michigan on Friday April 19th, 2013. Featuring musical guests Kaskade and Project 46.
During the day RECESS is a speker series featuring an out-of-the-box progressive speaker panel during the day from 3pm - 4pm "Study Hall" (held in Business School Room N130 on Campus). Then there is “The Playground”, which is an interactive career fair at the venue from 4:30 - 6:00pm (AG Expo Field) prior to doors opening featuring 16-20 disruptive startup companies. (Video explaining Recess more below)
To end the day is the word class electronic concert they are known for at Michigan State University, where they have brought out electronic icon Kaskade and rising Canadian duo Project 46. The festival is going to be the first outdoor music festival that the campus has seen, so should get extra crazy.
It's amazing to see electronic music spawn such a potentially impactful event, reminding me of 3LAU's Pencils for Promise campaign.

After annoucing the new dates and video a few weeksback we get the next jaw dropping lineup for Electric Forest. They pick a diverse and very impressive lineup once again. This year is absolutely no different with Pretty Lights returning to headline alongside Knife Party, Passion Pit. A-Trak, String Cheese Incident, Empire of the Sun, and that is just a taste. This is just the initial lineup also, they will be announcing more. What do you think of the lineup so far?
The experience of seeing all these acts while being in a Forest is a unlike anything else. Early bird ticket sold out, but tickets are still available here.
Yesss... Electric Forest just announced dates for it's 2013 festival, this time taking place 4 days over the weekend of June 27th - June 30th. It takes place in Michigan at the very awesome location of JJ Resort Ranch which is a Forest which has countless options of camping and VIP camping, and even cabins and hotels. It was my first camping festival 2 summers ago, and I could not have been happier. Look above at the video as it takes you through glimpses of artists playing all the different stages, all of the art, and even a shot of the legendary waterpark. 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
