How to Visit The Forest

*Plus Ticketing Fees If Applicable

The best way to arrive at Electric Forest is by taking an Official Electric Forest Shuttle. Shuttles depart from major cities around the festival, the Muskegon Airport, the Grand Rapids Airport, and Chicago’s O’Hare Airport. Those who arrive on shuttles are eligible for complimentary early arrival, and tent-only GA Camping close to the venue entrance.

If enough Forest Family ask, new routes will be added

Electric Forest is always seeking to reduce our collective impact on the planet, local communities, and each other. While tens of thousands of people seeking to enter the same space at the same time will always cause some slowdown, HQ is exploring the best ways to reduce wait times, carbon emissions, and long lines.

These shuttles are offered in that spirit to transport Forest Family and all of their camping gear. These shuttles will be operated by experienced drivers and run at convenient times going to and returning from The Forest. Shuttle service is provided by Forest Friends Sharethebus.

Those who ride the Official Shuttles will receive camping in the special Tent Only Campground – prime real estate next to the venue entrance. Good Life VIP wristband and package holders will be dropped off at their campground or lodging.

Those who select a shuttle that arrives on Wednesday will receive complimentary Wednesday Arrival.
