Jest’s Top 10 Light Shows of Electric Forest Weekend 1

Year after year, Electric Forest Music Festival in Rothbury Michigan plays host to a gathering of some of the most dedicated and unique flow artists in the Midwest and beyond. The very first time I experienced Electric Forest in 2014, I knew it was something unique. That year I received some of the best light shows in my life. The only regret I have from that year is that I didn’t record the fire.

This year, I came prepared and I now have video evidence of the artists responsible for burning down Electric Forest.

My top 10 favorite light shows from EF 2017 in no particular order…..

Glovetrotting Through Southeast Asia with Shaman

Shaman teaching kids a crash course in the art of melting faces

Ever wish you could quit your job and travel the world doing what you love? I fantasized about it for years. My name is Lemuel Sison, aka Shaman; and after a near-death-induced epiphany, I realized that life was too short not to. Around the same time, I found myself freezing in line for a Halloween warehouse rave, where I bought my first pair of glow gloves from a sketchy van in the parking lot to keep warm. Little did I know the impact it would have on my life, changing its course forever.

Bubbles on Empowering Women to Orbit

A nationally ranked figure skater turned orbiter, Alicia Hernandez (aka Bubbles) is the only female on the EmazingLights Orbit Sponsorship team. Known for her full body style and powerful wrap sequences, Bubbles is changing the way that festival goers view female light show artists and paving the way for all artists to come.

Since picking up an orbit for festival season in 2016, Hernandez became the first female to compete at the Orbit Invitationals at IGC 2016. Today, she is the first female orbiter to concept her very own EmazingLights Feature Video, which shows the life of our sponsors when they come visit the EmazingLights team at headquarters. By allowing people to see some of the perks of being a sponsor, Bubbles hopes to inspire other females to pick up an orbit and dream big.

EmazingBlog: Alicia, so tell us a little about yourself and your dance background. I’ve heard that you used to be a pretty intense figure skater back in the day. How did you find orbiting? And do you think that figure skating has translated to your style of orbiting?

Bubbles: I’ve been figure skating since I was 5 years old. I competed until I was 19, and I still skate for fun. My team won a national gold medal when I was 17, a competition which instilled the values of hard work and practice. From these experiences, I also learned how the arts can be an expression of yourself and how you’re feeling.

Dreamstate Was A Glover’s Worst Nightmare, Orbiters Spin Freely

Glovers were placed in headlocks. Fights broke out over security attempting to confiscate rare chips, and Facemelt Crew glovers [TNT] Havok and [PM] Cypher lost their gloves due to Insomniac’s strict “no gloving” policy at Dreamstate this past weekend.

[PM] Ice Kream Teddy, who has seen Insomniac’s ban on gloving escalate in the past 6 months, commented on security’s treatment of glovers at the festival:

“Never in my life have I been so shocked at the blatant disregard for the rights of a festival goer. I understand that gloves are not allowed, but what I saw was deplorable. People getting shoved, bullied and put in headlocks.”

Dreams Come True For Members of Facemelt Crew TomorrowWorld

Each day of TomorrowWorld got off to a rainy start, but by afternoon, the climate was cloudy with a high chance of light shows.

The roster, which included names like [3M] Jest from Minnesota, [ST] Torq from Florida and [EF] Vulcan from New York, bonded throughout the festival, and the trading of ideas and concepts between glovers and orbiters took their lights shows to another level.
