Future Forest has had more than its share of hard knocks this year. Festival organizer Tim Kukula had his home broken into, with money and equipment for the festival being stolen. Now, with festival season underway, it looks like Future Forest situation has drastically changed for the better.
This year the festival has a new (yet to be disclosed) location, that organizers are very excited about. While the previous location was much loved, the spot provides the opportunity of a blank canvas and the possibility of future development and permanent structures.
Today Future Forest are also releasing their 2017 poster, which reads like a Russian novel. When asked for comment on the full line-up of performers this year Kukula said, “I haven’t even finished reading it yet.”
As Kukula says, their list of visual artists alone is the size of some festival lineups.
