Electric Forest HQ Responds to the Recent Alcohol Ban

Posted earlier today via Facebook and Twitter, Electric Forest HQ responds to the recent alcohol ban controversy. The good news is, outside alcohol is no longer banned in the campgrounds, but there are still some changes:

This response didn’t exactly feel genuine to us. It still feels like EF was trying to pull one over the attendees and hope no one would realize what was going on – which kind of reminds us of the recent Fine Bros debacle. That didn’t go well for them either. As you can see, the response on Facebook doesn’t look too promising for EF. And we’re fairly confident they deleted the worst comments by the time we saw the post:

We personally think Connie nailed it on the response. Additionally, the ambiguous wording from EF leaves it in their favor when making the call on how much alcohol attendees actually get to bring into the campgrounds on an individual/vehicle basis.

In recent years, the alcohol limit was “NO MORE than 3 cases of beer per person (in cans). Large amounts of alcohol will be confiscated.”

So it appears the limit has dropped from 3 cases of beer/boxes of wine down to just 1 – and liquor is not allowed into the campgrounds this year. What are your thoughts on the situation at hand? Is EF really looking out for the safety of everyone, or are they trying to maximize their profits by pulling some shady stuff? And why did EF cite a law the first time around, but all of a sudden that law is no longer applicable? Please share your feedback with us below.
