The Forest Family will only have one weekend to experience Electric Forest next year, Wood TV 8 reports.

The Rothbury, Mich. festival announced in a Facebook post that they're scaling back in 2019 "with conservation and longevity in mind".

Electric Forest 2019 will run June 27 to June 30.

It will be the 9th year for the festival, which expanded to two weekends in 2017.

Here's the full statement from Electric Forest's website:

During the next year the Electric Forest grounds will see many exciting improvements that include upgraded landscapes, areas with new grass, and infrastructure improvements across the site. Most importantly, a new multi-year Sherwood Forest conservation plan will take effect.

Protecting and curating the grounds of Electric Forest for generations to come is important to all of the Forest Family.  The impact that comes with two weekends will need to be reduced for the new improvements to take hold.

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