Electric Forest Plans to Break Record with Hugs

Electric Forest Plans to Break Record with Hugs


Every year the Forest fills with individuals who are full of love and good vibes. Everybody that comes to this unforgettable weekend is considered family to each other. You don’t shake hands in the Forest, you give hugs.

If you were lucky enough to get a ticket to Electric Forest this year, you get the chance to break a world record. Electric Forest announced that they are attempting to break the world record for the largest group hug.

Foresters will assemble at the Sherwood Court Stage on Friday, June 26th at 2:30 in the afternoon for the Plug In Programs biggest project yet. The current record is 10,554 participants, and with Electric Forest selling out hours after the line-up announcement, they are confident that they will accomplish their goal.  There is no other community in the world that this record is more perfect for other than Forest Family.  See you in the Forest!
