Your way to shape The Forest with contests, art, and more!

The best part of Electric Forest is found in things we build and experience with each other – and Electric Forest’s Plug In Program is your opportunity to build something even bigger.

Through art and community projects, campsite décor contests and new adventures of all kinds, the experience of The Forest can be an inspiration to offer your magic to the world. Growing together is important to us. Everything each member of the Forest Family does, big or small, shapes the festival. The Electric Forest Plug In Program is growing in this spirit, with many ways for you to jump in and touch The Forest in ways you’ve been dreaming about.
