The Electric Forces Build Crew is an opportunity to be of service with brothers and sisters from the military behind the scenes of Electric Forest.
For the third year in a row, Forest HQ is seeking a group of veterans to come together and work with Electric Forest crews in bringing the production to the highest level.
