Less than one day after unveiling its lineup, this year’s Electric Forest festival has officially sold out.

It is the fastest sellout yet for the four-day festival, now in its fifth year. This year’s fest takes place June 25-28 at the Double JJ Ranch in Rothbury, Mich.

Performers at this year’s Electric Forest include Bassnectar, Skrillex, Kaskade and perennial headliners the String Cheese Incident. A list of more than 100 acts was announced on Wednesday.

The music and camping festival has been growing in stature every year since it was launched in 2011. Last year, Electric Forest was the fifth most-searched music festival on Google, according to the search engine’s year-end results list.

Last year’s Electric Forest sold out less than a month before the event. Attendance at the fest hovers around the 25,000 mark.

Tickets for this year’s festival, which were sold on a tiered pricing program that topped out at $279.50, went on sale in December.
