We usually have to wait (and wait and wait…) until at least February to see the initial lineup for Electric Forest 2017. In response to the feedback of their Foresters, Madison House reconfigured their plans for 2017 to provide the lineup prior to even the loyalty presale. The people wanted to know what they were buying before they threw money at it, and the organizers gave the people what they wanted.

Remember, the lineups on weekend one and two will be different, and any performer playing more than once over the course of the weekend will play different sets. Lifers String Cheese Incident and Bassnectar will come as no surprise, but take even a cursory glance at the headliners and you’ll see a conflict building.

So far, weekend one is looking a little more melodic, while weekend two appears to lean in a heavier direction. What do you think? Weekend one? Two? Both?
