Each year, new art sprouts from the Forest floor, sparking wild imagination and ushering in unexpected experiences that expand beyond the trees and into the hearts and minds of the Forest Family.

Entering its 12th year, The Art Installation Sponsorship Plug In Program offers the opportunity for artists to tap into their imagination and bring creations inspired by The Forest to life. Artists and builders are invited to bring original works to Electric Forest – from interactive sculptures of all sizes and scale to immersive spaces, and anything in between – and showcase their most ambitious projects at Electric Forest. HQ will help fund and support winning projects, bringing new ideas and inspiration to life in The Forest.

This fully interactive art piece invites the Forest Family to amplify our joy by encouraging us to remember and share treasured memories, solidifying them in our minds and hearts while at the same time increasing our inner joy at the moment of retelling.
