Please fill out the form on our submissions page with a short bio/project description, and links to relevant materials (i.e. your website, Bandcamp, Soundcloud, YouTube, Instagram, etc.). It is not necessary to make use of all link fields, but please submit at least one link to your material. If you feel you need to include more links, feel free to include them in the text of your project description.

Trailer for Electric Eclectics 2017 Documentation!

Here’s the trailer for the documentation of EE 2017, shot by Brandon Caswell Douglas! Song is “Watch the Wall” by Persons. Brandon’s got a lot of amazing footage, and we’re excited to share it with you when it’s ready!

Gate Opens @ 5 PM on Friday! Tickets Available!

The EE gate will be operational on Friday at 5 PM! It will also be open from 11 AM until late on Saturday and Sunday. Tickets will be available at the gate! $95/ weekend and $50/ day, but you can buy discount passes up until late morning on Friday through our Tickets page!


Howdy, all! We’re only two weeks out at this point. Discount day passes are up now, at the same price as last year ($40). This represents a $10 savings over gate price, and gets you 1 day of all the stuff that happens at the festival, including 1 night of camping!

Weekend passes are currently $70 (a $25 savings over the gate price), and include the full 3 days and nights, with camping. On July 24th, these passes will go up $5 in price, so get yours ASAP!

Of course, for those who don’t mind exchanging a little volunteer work for a free weekend pass, we still have some volunteer spots open! Head over to the volunteer page to see about those.

Full schedule of performers will be released next week, too!


We have added performances from Bonnie Trash and Dorothea Paas, as Cecilia Lopez and Dreamcrusher have unfortunately had travel document issues. Visit the lineup page to learn more about these performers!


The second round of discount weekend passes for EE XII is now on sale! Just $70 gets you 3 days and nights of camping, music, installations, and DJs! There are limited quantities of each round of discount tickets, and the price will climb each time a discount runs out. Get your passes early and save!


Schedule TBA! Discount pass prices increase this Monday at noon EST!
