Electric Forest’s Her Forest Program is a new initiative that considers and builds upon the experience of women at Electric Forest. With a focus on Connection, Inspiration, and Comfort, Her Forest is a collaboration between women.

THE WOMEN’S GROUP CAMP
The Women’s Group Camp is a space intended for women who are camping alone, or who are seeking an experience that builds community with other Forest Family women. Located centrally in the GA Campgrounds, the Women’s Group Camp is the seed of a collaborative space for woman forest-goers to connect and create with each other.
Camping spaces in the Women’s Group Camp are limited. Those who would like to participate are encouraged to sign up as soon as possible when sign up opens on February 18 at 3pm ET. As the festival nears, the Women’s Camp Host will connect camp members to collaborate on projects, coordinate arrival, and facilitate festival activities. This year’s Women’s Group Camp host is the lovely Edith Johnson of The Festival Girl.
Women’s Camp Rules
- Registration and payment of the Women’s Group Camp Fee is required in order to camp in this space.
- At minimum one (1) GA Camping wristband per person is required to qualify to join the Women’s Camp.
- The Women’s Group Camp is run like a true Group Camp, and there will be one (1) Group Camp Parking Pass issued for every three (3) members. Members must organize carpools with each other, and all other Group Camping rules will apply. To learn more about Electric Forest’s Group Camping program, click here.

THE WOMEN’S CIRCLE
Friday in Jubilee – Women’s event
Sunday in Jubilee – All invited! Including men.
The Women’s Circle is an invitation for Forest Women to connect in a celebratory circle in The Jubilee. The Women’s Circle will include informal learning and games, story-sharing, and an invitation to build connections with faces from the Forest community.
The Women’s Circle will be hosted by Kiki Federico. Please read on for her description of the circle experience…
A circle is a gathering that facilitates connection and amplifies the power of the collective through an intentionally-curated shared experience.
The circle is a universal symbol that represents inclusion, unity, and equality. Through the guidance of the leader(s), circles have the power to temporarily suspend social norms and encourage a depth of connection not readily experienced in everyday interactions. When we gather in a circle, we revive an ancient ritual that has long been used to bring people together, create a common focus, and set intentions – as equals and without judgement.
For Electric Forest, the intention is to create a unique, inclusive and powerful experience for participants to connect more deeply with themselves, each other and the meaning of their experience at the festival.
