On Monday, June 19, Electric Forest, the electronic music festival in Michigan, shared a message on their social media to provide reassurance.

The live music community is shocked by Saturday’s recent incident at The Gorge Amphitheatre in George, WA. During the evening, around 8:30 p.m., a person with a gun started shooting in the campground area, resulting in the unfortunate loss of two lives and injuries to three others. The authorities later caught the responsible individual. According to Billboard, Insomniac Events, a company based in Los Angeles that organizes Beyond Wonderland, is also a partner involved with Electric Forest.

Electric Forest organizers shared a series of updates on Twitter, mentioning that they will implement the new protocols starting from the first day of this year’s festival. The festival will continue until Sunday, June 25, and will showcase headline performances by ODESZA, Illenium, Zeds Dead, Above & Beyond, and The String Cheese Incident.

Electric Forest organizers took precautions considering the incident.

“In addition, we will have specialized Festival K9 Units on site. These highly trained dogs and their skilled handlers have undergone rigorous training in firearm detection amidst a large crowd and in challenging environmental conditions.”
