The Wish Machine rewards the positive actions of the Forest Family.

What are you doing to change the world? What would you wish for in return?


Take action to get your wish granted. Fill out the Wish Machine form explaining your brilliant plan to make the world better, and the wish you would like to see granted at Electric Forest.

What can you do in your community?

What is your vision of kindness, your gesture of keen hope? You can plant a seed by donating time in a community garden, organizing a trash cleanup, giving a free art class, feeding unhoused people, raising funds for a local nonprofit, or teaching a child to read. What you choose to do is up to you.

HQ will choose some efforts to travel full circle.

The reward from The Forest can be BIG or small. Would you like to meet your favorite artist? Get a free wristband for your friend? Receive unlimited snacks from your favorite vendor? Have HQ book a set for your band? Whatever you wish is fair game.

We come to Electric Forest to find heroes in each other. We leave to be heroes in the world.

Submit your wish now, keep track of your progress, and stay tuned!

So many of us wish for change in the world today. We must be that change. When the Forest Family thinks globally, we find a place that needs kindness.

Kindness, radical acceptance, and good deeds are why The Forest is special. These values create freedom to discover ourselves and celebrate our beautiful differences and unique gifts.

The 2018 Wish Machine sparked inspiration across the globe. With over 5,000 wishes submitted, the Forest Family went out into the world and did their part to make it a better place for all – fundraising and creating awareness for mental health, rare diseases, and sustainability; donating clothing, personal items, and funds to charity drives and disaster clean up efforts; volunteering countless hours of time and energy to local humane societies, hospitals, and homeless shelters; and much more.

From planting trees and empowering communities, to starting important conversations and raising awareness, the Forest Family brought the essence of The Forest with them – to people, neighborhoods, communities, and societies across the planet.
