We like to glamorize life out on tour here at The Untz, but the reality of the road warrior musician is its a lot of lost luggage, missed flights, and endless hours away from family and friends. Sure, you're a rock star with tens of thousands of worshipping fans, but it certainly ain't all champagne and caviar. Jesse and Luke Miller of the legendary post-rock and electro-jam act Lotus know that better than anyone else after their years criss-crossing the world, and they shared their wisdom with Anand Harsh in the Electric Glen at Electric Forest.

Each year, and American Music & Sound host the Electric Glen at Electric Forest. The interactive zone brings artists and fans together to play with the newest technology in the production and DJ world from cutting-edge brands like Reloop, Xone, Nord, and Studio Logic. Fans can get hands-on tutorials with the gear, and also check out artist panels with headliners on the bill hosted by The Untz.

If you missed our fun panels at Electric Forest, have no fear, you can watch our lively discussion with headliners Big Gigantic about their special set with The Motet, and re-live our All About That Bass panel with legends DJ Optical, Dabin, and Minnesota. We also learned how to craft The Perfect Remix with ILLENIUM, Vaski, and jackLNDN. You can also watch the The Power of Women in Festival Culture panel with featured artists Lindsey Stirling and Nattali Rize, yoga and wellness instructor Hannah Muse, Madison House Presents' Alicia Karlin, and Her Forest initiative coordinator and moderator Kiki Federico.
