Favorite ThisElectric Forest Festival Wrap-Up - Podcast Episode 80

Published: July 21, 2011

This year's inaugural Electric Forest Festival that took place in Rothbury, MI over July 4th weekend had the electronic music world abuzz with its high-caliber lineup and promotors' reputations (Insomniac Events and Madison House). The Untz was positively giddy with anticipation, and the festival itself became an Untz senior retreat. Who better, then, to talk about the merits of the event than co-founders Avi Gallant and Matt Thomas?

On today's episode, Avi and Matt discuss the secret Pretty Lights set with Break Science's Adam Deitch, and the spectacles that are Bassnectar and Shpongle. The Skrillex circus is also a topic of conversation, as well as the late-night VIP throwdown with Michal Menert, Dom Lalli (Big Gigantic), and Colby Buckler (Two Fresh's live drummer). We also discuss the surprise breakout performance by The Werks.

Coming up in the next couple of weeks on The Untz Podcast, we'll have Mississippi's livetronica force  Zoogma on the program, as well as Bluetech, who just released an album benefitting anti-deforestation groups. Join the conversation by following @theuntzpodcast on Twitter!
