Rothbury Festival Returns as Electric Forest Festival 2011

After getting canceled in 2010, it looks like the Rothbury Festival is making a comeback in 2011…but with a new name: the Electric Forest Festival.

We’ve been hearing some occasional rumors about a return for Rothbury in 2011, but this new temporary site posted today is the most official notice we’ve seen, other than some off-the-cuff comments from Bill Nershi of String Cheese Incident. SCI appears to be a key player in putting this one together, so we expect them to have the headlining slots. Other than that, we’re hearing that Greensky Bluegrass let this date temporarily slip onto their tour listings, so it’s possible the lineup will take on a more bluegrass-oriented slant.

Either way, it’s great to see this festival making a comeback in 2011.

So, besides String Cheese Incident, who else do you want to see headlining the new Rothbury?

    what!!! this is semi outrageous!!! i mean dont get me wong i like blue grass, but they need to have more a variety. On a bluegrass note though, i would like to see the rumpki mountain boys as a headliner then.

    Doyle Lawson and Quicksilver, if it’s going to have the bluegrass feel might as well get some old school.
