*A note on headdresses & threatening messages: at Electric Forest, all should feel safe, comfortable, and welcome.


In this spirit, HQ requests that those who would bring American Indian Headdresses to the festival leave them at home. Out of respect for this community, it is inappropriate to wear headdresses outside of traditional ceremony.


Additionally, while HQ supports diversity in signs, totems, and articles of clothing, words or images that threaten harm to others are not welcome in The Forest.


Electric Forest reserves the right to confiscate items deemed to be in violation of these two policies at its discretion.


In such a creative community, HQ is confident that these requests will open up new, more inclusive creative opportunities for all who attend. Thank you for making choices that support and inspire all members of the Forest Family.
