The Show Goes On: Electric Forest Gets Approval for 2015
Grant Township, where the Electric Forest Festival is held each year, just approved the annual permit to allow the Electric Forest Festival to be held in 2015. (Click here for more). Because the Electric Forest Festival attracts more than 10,000 people every year, it is required to ask the township where the festival takes place for a mass gathering permit. The township voted 3-2 to approve the permit. The township board has voted consistently in this regard with three firm supporters and two detractors. Even though the festival has garnered a national reputation as one of the best music festivals in the country, its detractors still object to the negatives associated with the festival, e.g., the open use of drugs and alcohol at the festival. Regardless, the show will go on and is scheduled for June 25-29, 2015.
