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 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…..

The Wizarding World of Light Academy

If you are a glover active in the online community, chances are you’ve heard of or are a member of the infamous Glover’s Lounge. Glover’s Lounge is the biggest gloving based Facebook group with over twenty thousand members. It’s a staggering number, but a recurring trend we see is that a handful of glovers dominate the group with their posts. This got me to thinking: how do we encourage beginners to join the conversation without feeling intimidated by the space?

“Light Academy is a haven for like-minded individuals to share a passion with the notion that all scrutiny will be constructive and considerate.” -Chad Morris

These Trail Shots Will Absolutely Blow Your Mind

The power of the lights we play with can produce a much more permanent image when captured in photos with slow shutter camera lenses. These pictures are a testament to the artist’s control over his lights and spacial awareness.
