You can also purchase a pass on the day of for $20-25 cash after being dropped off at the festival. The official schedule departing Holiday Resort and returning from EIF can be found here.
Giant checkers, bowling and flower crown stations? Tell me more!
6am Group and Alter Ego are teaming up this year to bring you a ton of activities to amp up your festival experience. So far, we have the following activities lined up:
Adder toss/”Latte” toss
Soccer pool/Snooker ball
Beer Pong/Basket Pong
Eat before the event and come hydrated! But if you don’t have time, don’t worry about it! There will be plenty of food and beverages at the festival. Just make sure you carry cash because only cash will be accepted! Pro-tip: Once you get to the event, take a few minutes to find a spot for the sunset and stretch your body out for the dancing you’re gonna be doing. Your body will thank you the next day!
Leave all your worries and troubles behind!
Festivals are treated more and more as an escape for everyday people, we all have our own problems and worries (including the EIF organizers and members!). What makes EIF truly special is that for a moment in time you can let go, lose yourself and all the worries behind to fully express yourself in the most positive manner with NO judgment. EIF claims to be so much more than a music festival and serves as a platform for people to truly be themselves (BE YOURSELF!).
Bring all the positive energy!
EIF is all about spreading and embracing the positive vibes! For the best festival experience, unwind and have fun, and remember to look out for each other. See a straggler in the crowd, give them a high five! If your friends look dehydrated, grab them some water! Live in the moment and return home with epic stories to tell!
The 5th annual Electric Island Festival (EIF) will be taking place on Saturday, June 24th at the Guam International Raceway from 6pm-4am. More information can be found via our FB event page and our Website.
