Open For 2018 Submissions

Prize Cart Remix Contest


New for 2018, in collaboration with Electricology, the opportunity to remix one of the Forest Family’s favorite tunes: “PRIIIZE CART”. HQ invites creative musically-inclined minds to add a special twist to the official theme of the Prize Cart.

Last year, long time Forest Family and up-and-coming producer XLP took matters into his own hands by remixing the original Prize Cart theme song, written by String Cheese Incident’s Kyle Hollingsworth.

Sparked by his creativity, HQ introduces this as an official contest, and has invited XLP to help judge the contest AND play his own set at EF2018.


HQ will provide:

  • Two (2) GA Camping wristbands to to an Electric Forest weekend of your choice
  • Your remix showcased as the official Prize Cart Remix Contest winner
  • An announcement of your remix being selected!


Submissions will be accepted for review March 13 – April 15, 2018 at 11:59pm ET. The remix winner will be announce in April, 2018.
