Two Weeks of Electric Forest 2017
Posted on July 10 2017
Its hard to even put into words the magic that Electric Forest fills us with every year.
From the decorations and installations, the people and music, everything down to the grounds control staff; Electric Forest is full of good intentions. This year, for the first time ever, the festival's lineup was extra large and split into two weekends of mad fun. Both weekends featured some of our favorite artists such as The String Cheese Incident, Big Gigantic, Bob Moses, Bassnectar, Lettuce, Papadosio and so much more! We also got the chance to see some of our favorite painter friends; Dela, Randal Roberts, John Gay, Phil Lewis and Gwen AP. These artists bring their own magic to the forest and help to make it come to life.

Regardless of all the magic, Mother Nature did what she could to slow us down. But it wasn't anything some rain boots & a poncho couldn't fix. Both weekends, patrons had to fight the rain and the mud. The festival grounds really took a toll with all of the water and the high amount of foot traffic. The beautiful green grass that appeared in front of stages the first weekend, was replaced with mud puddles, wood chips and sand the second weekend.

Being apart of the fashion community, we cant help but to admire the trends that appear in The Forest and festivals around the country. We see so many Grassroots California hats everywhere and we cant help but to have a warm heart. How do you like to dress up your Grassroots hats? Pins? Kritter ears? Paint? Whatever it may be, we always love seeing how you personalize your lids.
Every year Grassroots California gets the opportunity to collaborate with the festival to create a line of limited edition hats inspired by the forest. These hats can only be bought through the official festival merchandise. Grassroots also creates a Rothbury Line for the festival, inspired by the forest. Check out those hats here!
A special thank you to all of you that braved the weather and came out to the Grassroots California booth. We love all of you humans and had so much fun hanging out with you.
