As previously reported, jam icons String Cheese Incident will take over the stomping grounds of the still-in-doubt Rothbury Music Festival for their own four-day extravaganza this Fourth of July weekend.

Set to run June 30-July 3rd at the Double JJ Resort in Rothbury, Michigan, the Electric Forest‘s inaugural bill already includes 51 acts, with even more still to be confirmed. Along with three sets by SCI, the festival will offer such musical heavyweights as DJ Tiësto, Pretty Lights, REO Speedwagon, Edward Sharpe & the Magnetic, Stephen Marley, Kaskade, Shpongle, and Railroad Earth.

Other confirmed acts include Laidback Luke, JJ Grey & Mofro, Excision The New Deal, EOTO, Emmitt-Nershi Band, Skrillex, Karl Denson’s Tiny Universe, Toubab Krewe, Bonobo (DJ Set), Beats Antique, Big Gigantic, Chiddy Bang, Eskmo, Lettuce, Eliot Lipp, Paper Diamond, The Infamous Stringdusters, 12th Planet, The Pimps of Joytime, and Emancipator.

In addition to the music, Electric Forest will also offer access to Rothbury’s enchanted Sherwood Forest, Gold Rush Water Park, Thoroughbred Golf Club, Big Wildcat Lake, and horseback riding.

Weekend tickets are available starting March 5th for $199.00 (plus fees), but that price will rise to $239.00 once the initial allotment sells out. A number of VIP packages are also available. You can find complete ticketing information at the festival’s website.
