Electric Forest has become one of the most innovative music festivals of our time. In the past, the festival has announced its highly anticipated lineup in non-traditional formats, like in 2016, when they mailed out envelopes with names of artists to select fans and let social media do the rest. After expanding to two weekends last year (which demanded a more traditional announcement), Electric Forest is back with another unorthodox lineup announcement for 2018.Electric Forest’s New ‘Wish Machine’ Can Grant Your Festival “Wish” In Exchange For Charity WorkAs detailed by a Reddit thread, on Sunday night, Ann Arbor, Michigan’s Club Necto hosted a special pop-up event put on by the Electric Forest folks, which culminated in a performance by Space Jesus. Electric Forest used the event as a means to begin revealing the artists on its 2018 lineup, transforming the club into a puzzle room of sorts. As told by redditor /u/Supersighs, “Throughout the venue there [were] many posters were on the wall saying “Performer” is playing Electric Forest 2018. There was a special bar menu with clues to different acts playing. A little burlesque show that revealed some acts. There was a different number on each Men and Women bathroom mirror that if you called, had an artist saying they’re excited to be playing EF2018. The toilet paper had a word scramble all over it revealing an act. There was also a word search projected on the building also revealing some acts.”The folks over at Reddit have been keeping tabs on the artist revealed at last night’s pop-up show. Here’s their list of artists confirmed for Electric Forest 2018 (though keep your eyes peeled for more announcements, as there are still upwards of 100 artists left to be announced!):Everyone OrchestraSpag HeddyNonameXavier RuddRufus Du SolKarl Densons Tiny UniverseManic FocusChromeoHayden JamesSodownSunSquabiFruitionClozeeBoogie TLouis the ChildMisterwivesGryffinCookie MonstaG JonesBukuPenguin PrisonYookieEpromJody LitvackSpace Jesus[H/T YourEDM; Photo: Adam Straughn]

By Muriel J. SmithAs sure as she is that Super Pac funds had an influence in Democrat candidates Eric Houghtaling and Joann Downey taking two seats in the Assembly’s 11th district from the Republican incumbents, State Senator Jennifer Beck is just as sure the newcomers will work well together with her for the good of the people of the district.The upset victory by the Democrats over incumbents Mary Pat Angelini and Caroline Casagrande was one of the largest surprises in the lighter than usual voter turnout last Tuesday. In spite of Democrats having more registered voters than Republicans in the district, it has traditionally voted for Republicans at the Senate and Assembly level.Beck, the state senator representing the district, told The Two River Times this week that the lower turnout also was an asset for the Democrats, noting that Neptune Township, where Houghtaling was raised, still lives and serves on the Township Committee, had a higher percentage of voters at the polls than the county in general. Beck attributed the lower turnout to people being disgusted with the negative campaigning that occurred and voters were simply turned off with voting at all.The NJ State Election Commission noted that more than $8.5 million from outside groups was spent on state contests last week, the highest ever recorded in the state’s history. A considerable portion of that money backed Houghtaling and Downey as well as other Democrat assembly hopefuls in South Jersey contested districts.With Angelini and Casagrande out in Trenton, Beck said she fully expects the new assembly members “will work together with me. That’s what we’re all elected to do, work for the people we represent, that’s why they sent us to Trenton in the first place.” The senator said the three officials will coordinate ideas and noted that she already knows Houghtaling is a hard worker and has been tireless for Neptune Township. Although she does not know Downey as well, she said she is anxious to work with her, knows her reputation as an attorney, and feels she is very bright and eager to do her best in the Assembly for the 11th district. “I look forward to working with both of them. At the end of the day, it’s all about being good representatives for all the people in our district.” Beck said.
