The UnMEDIAted Creator Incubator 📸

A space for creatives to support each other, integrate with The Electric Forest Media Team, and collaborate on special projects.

The UnMEDIAted Creator Incubator Program invites creatives – from photographers and videographers, content creators to digital artists, podcasters, imaginators, and more – to join the Electric Forest 2023 Media TeamCreator Incubator. This program intends to connect creatives at all levels to share skills and perspectives, collaborate with and learn from HQ, and exercise creative practices with fellow Forest Family. Submit an original proposal to add to the creative spirit of The Forest.

This is an open call to join the Electric Forest 2023 UnMEDIATed Creator Incubator – the space for creatives to support each other, integrate with The Electric Forest Media Team, and collaborate on special projects.
  1. Ideate and submit a proposal that reflects your creative skills and how you can add to HQ’s 2023 Creative Team. No need to visit a forest or shoot a concert – show HQ how Electric Forest inspires you, in whatever context feels appropriate. (Please note: Previous attendance to Electric Forest is not required to apply to this program. New Forest Family are absolutely welcome!)
  2. Send your proposal to HQ via the application form.
  • One (1) GA Wristband and any additional credentials that are necessary (determined on a case-by-case basis)
  • One (1) 4-Day Vehicle Pass
  • Collaborate with HQ as an official member of the UnMEDIAted Creator Incubator and the Electric Forest Creative Media Team. 
The spirit of The Forest extends beyond HQ. Together, we can invent, discover, enlighten, form, organize, and shape ideas that wouldn’t be possible alone.

Winners can expect daily meetups with Forest teams and collaborators to coordinate specific projects for that day – special celebrations, unique artist sets, Plug In Programs, spontaneous surprises, and more. Think of this Creator Incubator as an opportunity to connect and tell a story as a collective.

To be considered for this program, all entrants must be willing to collaborate with HQ and fellow creatives.


Submissions will be accepted for review starting Wednesday, February 22, 2023 through Sunday, April 30, 2023 at 11:59 PM Eastern. Workshops and instructors will be selected and announced in early May 2023.
