Who You’ll See
Who You Can’t Miss
Wolfgang Gartner – Itâ€™s probably obvious to most people attending Electric Forest that this guyâ€™s set is one not to miss. Kick off the weekend and get ready to dance your ass off to hyped up electro/tech house. Make sure to leave some time to check out the other Canâ€™t Miss artist of Thursday night, which happens to start a half hour in to the Gartnerâ€™s set.
EOTO – If you havenâ€™t gotten the chance to check out this amazing duo, be sure to save some time in between Wolfgang Gartner and Ghostland Observatory. The pair blends pre recorded dance beats with organic blasts of live instruments that equate to a harmonious blend of dubstep, breakbeat, house, drum and bass, with a kick of trip hop.
Under The Radar Performer
Beats Antique – Although the Oakland based group emerged about five years ago, they may still be under the radar for a lot of you. The self-proclaimed masterful merge of modern technology, live instruments, and seductive performance built of brass bands, glitch, string quartets and dubstep, will definitely end your Thursday night right.
What You Can Pass On
Borgore – Alright, someone had to say it. Unless youâ€™re into the whole stripper vibe and one note dubstep, this set can most definitely be passed up. No need to worry though, Conspirator has the same time slot and will be throwing it down at Sherwood Court. Choose wisely.
What We Want To Hear
