Hulaween 2016: Spotify Playlist
Hulaween has established a Halloween tradition with its third Suwannee Hulaween music festival creeping in on October 28th – 30th. The progressive-blugrass jam band The String Cheese Incident began hasting and headlining the festival back in 2013 with help from Silver Wrapper and Purple Hat Productions. [Full Lineup Below]
The 3-day festival has gained popularity thanks to a diverse lineup of electronic, jam, and hip-hop artists and its famous location at the Spirit of Suwanee Music Park. The camping festival also offers an optional Thursday pre-party including performances by The Werks, GanjaWhiteKnight, and EOTO. The pre-party continues late into the night until 4 a.m. with silent disco performers Ployd, Digital Skyline, and Cry Havoc who promises to deliver a “weird” performance to match the spooky and spiritual vibes.
Costumes are encouraged and the more creative they are the more fun you’re guaranteed to have. Get down with electronic performances by Manic Focus, Gramatik, STS9, & Sunsquabi.
Supplying the sweet jams for the weekend will be bands that include Too Many Zooz, Snarky Puppy, and a special collaboration between Dominic Lalli’s old jam band The Motet and his follow up hit electronic duo Big Gigantic. Throughout the weekend the hosting band The String Cheese Incident will be playing an unprecedented six separate performances.
Then there’s the improvisational funk sensation Lettuce that just brought material off their latest album, Crush, to The Canopy Club in Champaign, Illinois. [Lettuce Funks It Up @ The Canopy Club w/ photos].
We’re also looking forward to seeing Logic again on Halloween weekend after witnessing his energetic performance dressed in a red jumpsuit at the Freaky Deaky music festival, Halloween weekend 2015, in Chicago. [Freaky Deaky 2015:Review & Photos]. Logic just released his mixtape Bobby Tarantino in June so we can expect to here hits like Flexicutioner and Wrist of the compilation that hit number 2 on Billboards Hip-Hop charts.
