For those who don’t know about The Black Madonna, she’s a dance music master from Kentucky who started her career in the 90’s with mixtapes and underground raves. She’s the first female to be named MixMag‘s DJ of the Year, and is known to be “one of the world’s most exciting turntablists”. She seamlessly manipulates beats and vibes to put the crowd in the perfect trance. With influences from disco, house, techno and funk, her sets are always sure to be a great time, one moment you could get Sylvester, the next you might get a taste of Missy Elliot. Check out this groovy Queen in action:

This is just the first bite of all the music to be played in June; we can expect lineups from the renegade RV stages, as well as silent discos, and smaller stages inside the forest.

Electric Forest has an official ticket exchange that has proven to be very successful. The Forest fam has your back. Really if there is a will there is a way.
