The gate will open at 5 PM today, and at noon on Saturday and Sunday! Tickets will be available at the gate.
Some things to remember:
- This is a cash-only event!
- Bring your drinking water, flashlight, your warm clothing for nighttime, your rain jacket or umbrellas, sunscreen, bug spray, hygiene products, tent, sleeping bag, bathing suit, and towel (for swimming at beaches in Meaford).
- THERE ARE NO FIRES or OPEN FLAMES PERMITTED.
- Cars go in the parking area, and tents go in the marked-off camping areas. Signs will direct you. If you are confused, ask gate staff for clarification.
- You are expected to be respectful to those around you. Among other things, that means:
No body shaming
No violence (including sexual and emotional violence)

The first EE discount passes are on sale now! When each round of discount passes ends, the price will increase, and the next sale will begin. It’s always cheapest to buy earlier than later! $65 gets you 3 days and nights of camping and festival attendance, while supplies last!
Submissions for the 2018 Electric Eclectics Festival (August 3-5) are now open.
From now until 11:59 PM EST on January 15th, submissions are open! We are accepting submissions from musicians, performance artists, installation artists, DJs, and filmmakers.
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.
Successful applicants will hear from us by mid April. Please note that due to the high number of submissions, only successful applicants will be contacted.
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!
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!
