Despite a pending lawsuit by AEG preventing SFX from any type of takeover/cancellation of the festival scheduled for this June, Electric Forest has just announced their initial line up.
With headliners such as Zedd, Steve Angello, Booka Shade, Cut Copy and Flying Lotus, its an impressive first wave that gives a good indication that this festival has a green light.
News of the court action made EDM news this week, yet social media updates from Electric Forest urged fans of EDM culture not to worry, as the festival would continue as planned.
SFX, an EDM culture media conglomerate run by Robert Sillerman, has strongly denied any bid to take over the festival, telling Spin Magazine "we only are interested in expanding the offerings available to EMC [electronic music culture] fans".
The next scheduled court date for the AEG case is February 28th. The festival is scheduled for June 26th to 29th.
