Electric Forest is officially pushing its 2021 edition to next year.
Today (April 23), the festival announced that "after a tumultuous year full of challenges, HQ has eagerly anticipated and worked towards our collective return to Electric Forest. However, as the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic have continued, it has become clear that we are not going to be able to gather in 2021 and that postponing to 2022 is our only course of action."
The Michigan festival -- which focuses on a mix of electronic music, jam bands and other sound -- is co-produced by the Colorado-based Madison House Presents and California-based Insomniac Events and typically happens in late June. Producers had been eyeing a return this fall before the pandemic made those plans untenable and noted that it's not entirely clear on when the 2022 event will take place.
