Electric Forest 2017: Weekend 1

By  |  0 Comments
Before we dive back into the world of Electric Forest for Weekend 2, let’s take a little look back at the EF first weekend. It was rainy, it was muddy, it was exhilarating, and above all…it was magical.

Headliners for last weekend included: The String Cheese Incident, Bassnectar, Big Gigantic, Dillon Francis, The Revivalists, and Lotus. First weekend festival goers also saw ODESZA, My Morning Jacket, and Above & Beyond – all who will not be playing this coming weekend.

It all started when a much younger Jackie dove into her parents’ record collection, grabbed that trippy Magical Mystery Tour album, and played “Strawberry Fields” over and over again until it was engrained into her soul. She grew up on the dreams and stories of Simon and Garfunkel, “Bleeker Street” being one of her favorites, the seduction of The Doors, Van Morrison, because “Brown Eyed Girl” is definitely her song, and the likes of Jefferson Airplane, The Who, Jimi Hendrix…you get the picture. It may not show on the outside, but Jackie has a hippie heart, and that reflects in her musical tastes today. While some of her favorites may or may not be jam bands, her taste in music feeds into many genres. From alternative, Brit, and indie rock - OK, maybe all rock - to pop, to rap, to electronic, she loves it all. As a northerner, she thought she would never understand country until she found herself on a Georgia farm in cowboy boots watching Luke Bryan shake it for her- yeah, she got that. She is a chronic wanderluster, she doesn't believe in guilty pleasures, enjoys a great Moscow Mule, and is an absolute music festival fanatic- you’ll find her wherever the music takes her.
