Now Accepting Love Stories

A Celebration of Forest-Found Couples

New in 2019, introducing A Celebration of Forest-Found Couples.

The Forest overflows with LOVE – Love discovered through vibrations of song, swinging in the hammocks of Sherwood Forest, exploring hidden gems in The Hangar, uncovering Fairy Doors, sharing a meal on Main Street, or disco-ing silently late-night.

In 2019, HQ celebrates love found in The Forest, welcoming Forest-Found couples to submit their Forest love stories and gather at Electric Forest 2019 to honor that love.

Submit your Forest love story at the application form below. Submissions will be accepted through April 30 at 11:59pm ET.



Cali’s first Electric Forest experience was in 2011. She decided to go on a whim with a few friends, and bought her wristband to EF2011 on the drive from Chicago to Michigan. She’s been to Electric Forest every year since.

Joey grew up in Chicago and heard about Electric Forest through friends. He attended his first Electric Forest in 2015 as an artist manager for Louis The Child, and has returned to The Forest every year since.

On a warm Saturday night at Electric Forest 2015, Cali was wandering Sherwood Forest when a fellow Forest Family member handed her a note that read: “I choose love, joy, and freedom to open my heart and allow wonderful things to flow into my life.” Little did Cali know, love, joy, and wonder was already on its way.

As Big Gigantic closed Sherwood Court on Sunday night, Joey and Cali happened to be dancing near one another. They locked eyes and sparks flew. After exploring every corner of The Forest for hours together, Joey and Cali wandered back to the campgrounds and stumbled upon a party – Big Gigantic, Griz, and Cherub were playing on on top of an RV. Joey and Cali grooved, moved, and danced, until the sky began to light up at sunrise.

Joey and Cali have been together ever since.

This is just one of the countless Forest-Found love stories that exist at Electric Forest. Submit your Forest love story above, and stay tuned for more information on A Celebration of Forest-Found Couples at Electric Forest 2019.
