This summer Absolute Michigan interviewed Ragbirds front woman Erin Zindel about Electric Forest. She told us, “The heart of Hoxeyville is a community of musicians who are there every year. Many are from Michigan, and it’s wonderful to have so many talented people in one place. I love the bands they choose and the size of the festival. It’s well managed and a has a great vibe!”
Erin is dead on and you can see some of the best and brightest talent from around our beautiful state including The Ragbirds, Breathe Owl Breathe, The Macpodz, Ella Riot, Airborne or Aquatic, Seth & May, The Crane Wives and many more!
It’s more than just music – Hoxeyville is held on 85 acres of northern Michigan farmland and hardwood forest that gets you feeling like you’re away from it all. So you don’t feel too far out there, they have a swimming pool, showers, plug-ins, dump station and wireless Internet. The festival also features a disc golf course with a glow course, VIP and quiet camping options, a vendor village and a beer tent featuring some of the finest brews from the region. To ensure you can enjoy the intimate vibe, attendance is capped at 5000!
Hoxeyville is also a leader among green festivals and offers incentives for “green acts” and was able to compost more than 70% of the waste produced, use biodegradable cups & plates and even to reduce its carbon footprint by powering its stages and productions using biodiesel generators!
