Electric Fences – Electric Fences was founded in 2015 as an autonomous, D.I.Y. event, rejecting the necessity of sponsorships, and operating under the idea that a smaller, less restrictive model of the traditional music festival would create a more memorable and enduring experience for both the audience and the performers.
