Over 45,000 Forest lovers descended upon Rothbury, Michigan on June 22-26 for the 6th version of the Electric Forest. The Forest is a magical place comprised of mainly veterans who consider this the highlight of their year. With over 175 acts playing at seven main stages the music was beyond incredible.

 The 14-acre Sherwood Forest also boasts hypnotic art installations, live painting, hammocks galore and actors to interact and even reward benevolent attendees.

This year’s Forest was one for the records with tens thousands of attendees proclaiming this was the Best Forest Ever! Whether it is the music, lights, art or people the Forest casts its magical spell around you and fills people with intense smiles, laughter and glee.

The Art is ridiculously mind bending. Every where you look is something trippy, beautiful and unique.

We have rounded up photos of some of our favorite art installations:
