Electric  Forest; An amazing photo gallery from the great Aaron Bradley and a recap along with setlists. (PART 1 of 2)

String Cheese successfully hosted the most extraordinary party on the festival circuit once again. There are many reasons why this festival sells out immediately while other mainstays have been dropping faster than a teenager at a Phish show. Where the look tries to be over the top is a understatment, the grounds that hosts this coveted event is always a freak out waiting to happen. A night time stroll would make Timothy Leary blush as the grounds transform into a psychedelic  paradise with many rabbit holes. 
The main reason this is a festival that is on most music lovers bucket list is the host band "The String Cheese Incident" who always shine brightest in the carnivals they manifest. They also had the foresight to mix electronica bands, D.J.s and producers before it was the norm. The end result is a musical paradise where everyone respects and genuinely loves each other as well as the scene. 
This year kept the Vibe alive and managed to up the ante as every possible situation went off without a hitch. S.C.I certainly held up thier end of the bargain with three magical nights of music. Each night having guest as they honered Prince, David Bowie and the recently departed Bernie Worroll. But Electric Forest is more than Cheese as you will see in the next gallery. 
Just take a look at these amazing setlists from "Cheese" over the weekend.
