Electric Forest is coming in hot with two weekends of festivities this year. Taking place on June 22-25, and June 29-July 2, 2017, the Rothbury, Michigan festival will feature The String Cheese Incident, ODESZA, Flume, DJ Snake, and our friends, Golf Clap.

The Detroit natives, aka Hugh Cleal and Bryan Jones, have an unmatched prowess in the house music scene and can often be seen creating an unmistakable vibe in the studio, at festivals and afterparties, and beyond. These two are just getting started, but they have plenty of wisdom when it comes to this year’s Electric Forest lineup, where they will be playing both weekends. 

Check out Golf Clap’s recommendations for Electric Forest 2017 below. Catch them on Thursday, June 22nd at Claude VonStroke’s The Birdhouse Stage, and again on Thursday, June 29th. Make sure to peep their brand new track, “Bout That,” which is already climbing the charts on Beatport.


Sunday, June 25th / Thursday, June 29th

He’s been our favorite live act for quite awhile now. We just went and saw him play in Detroit not too long ago on his recent tour. You’ve got to watch these live videos to see just how impressive it is.


Sunday, June 25th / Friday, June 30th

One of the top DJs we’ve ever seen. We’ve watched these Boiler Room sets a million times and learned a lot of DJ tricks and ideas from them. We’ve had the pleasure of booking him in Detroit and playing with him a few times. Awesome guy.

Claude VonStroke

Thursday, June 22nd / Sunday, July 2nd / Friday, June 23rd (as Barclay Crenshaw)

We always catch Claude at Forest. We’ve been playing stuff on Dirtybird and listening to him for years now. We’re playing his hosted stage the first weekend this year along with Maya Jane Coles, Walker & Royce, Machinedrum, Jimmy Edgar, & Sonny Fodera. Don’t forget to check out his downtempo/hip-hop alias, Barclay Crenshaw, the first weekend.

AC Slater

Friday, June 23rd / Saturday, June 24th

We had a lot of fun hanging out at the Night Bass stage last year. AC Slater is back hosting his stage again at the Forest Stage the first weekend along with Jack Beats, Chris Lake, Redlight, Ardalan, Shift K3y, Sinden, & Bot

Shiba San

Thursday, June 29th / Friday, June 30th

We play tons of his music and book him in Detroit a lot. Really good producer and DJ. Perfect music for Forest. Don’t sleep on this.

House/Techno: Sonny Fodera, Soul Clap, Sinden, Maya Jane Coles, Walker & Royce, Ardalan, Bot, Chris Lake, Oliver Heldens, Hi-Lo, Jimmy Edgar
