The Wish Machine
What are you doing to change the world? What would you wish for in return?
The Electric Forest Wish Machine is an opportunity to earn your Forest dream. Offer an inspirational, ambitious, or charitable deed in exchange for your very own dream-come-true experience at Electric Forest.
MAKE AN IMPACT; CREATE CHANGE; DREAM BIG.
The Wish Machine challenges the Forest Family to venture out into the world to spread positivity and good deeds. 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 2020.
Keep in mind – Forest HQ will only be able to grant a limited number of wishes. Wish appearance on the submission page does not imply wish fulfillment, merely that the wish is in the running. All wishes that meet the criteria will be displayed anonymously on the Wish Machine page.
- The first half of your wish “If I …“, must take place before Electric Forest 2020.
- You must be able to document and record online, publicly, your fulfillment of the first half of your wish.
- Your wish cannot be dangerous to yourself or others.
- Your wish must be sincere – you must actually be prepared to complete the first half and participate in the second half.
Wish Machine submissions will be open from November 11, 2019 to March 1, 2020. Wishes will be accepted for fulfillment in April of 2020.
At any time, Forest HQ may follow up with you to clarify aspects of your wish and details for your deed before your wish is selected for fulfillment. For example, if you are seeking to perform on stage with an artist, HQ could follow up for documentation of your musical skill.

THE FOREST WILL REWARD THE MOST INCREDIBLE, WORLD-CHANGING, AND AWE-INSPIRING ACTIONS.
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!
