Popular music festival Electic Forest, which normally runs back-to-back weekends in the summer, will move to just one weekend.

In a Facebook post, organizers said part of the reason for the cut is to protect and curate the grounds of Electric Forest for generations to come.

"The impact that comes with two weekends will need to be reduced for the new improvements to take hold," the post reads.

They also plan to upgrade the landscape area with new grass and improve infrastructure as part of the plan.

"With conservation and longevity in mind, Electric Forest will be one magical weekend in 2019," they continue.

Wristbands and lodging packages for the festival will go on sale at 12 p.m. on Friday, Dec. 7 with a Six in the Forest and Four in the Forest Loyalty pre-sales happening on Dec. 5, 2018.

The lineup has not yet been announced.
