After a successful launch last year, Electric Forest will be bringing back the Her Forest Program, a cohesive series of events and options meant to build community among the women attendees of the festival this year. The program’s activities are open to people who identify as women and focus on three main themes: connection, inspiration, and comfort.During the first weekend, the festival will host the Her Forest curated events, which will feature up-and-coming women dancers, artists, musicians, and DJs. With applications open to apply, women from around the country will be chosen to be added to this year’s line-up. Women-only camping will be available within the larger GA camping grounds during the event as well. With an emphasis on community building while also creating a comfortable and safe space for women who might attending the festival alone, both weekends will feature this camping option, though spots are limited.Finally, 2017 will see the return of the Her Forest women’s panel. Last year, the panel was entitled Women: Game Changers in Creativity Panel and featured Alana Rocklin (STS9),Dessa (Doomtree), Miranda Zickler (Rabbit Wilde), Alicia Karlin (Madison House Presents Talent Buyer), Nova Han (Electric Forest 2016 Art Director), and host Kiki Federico. This year, Her Forest will be assembling a new panel for the second weekend, bringing together female artists and industry-insiders to talk about their experiences. You can listen to last year’s panel below, courtesy of the festival.Finally, the Her Forest program will be running a variety of meet-ups and circles throughout both weekends, giving ladies a chance to meet one another, make new connections, and build community.
