35,000 people will have to be a little more strategic in how they relax at this years Electric Forest. The festival kicks off at the Double JJ Ranch in Rothbury, June 25-28. New hammock rules are aimed to preserve the experience and overall health of the forest. Festival goers are no longer able to stack hammocks and designated areas will be put aside as a first come first serve basis. Hammocks are said to be the soul of the Electric Forest and part of what makes it a unique experience.
