It may only be August, but it certainly isn’t too early to start thinking about Halloween plans.
The perennially freaky holiday always aligns with the underground aesthetic, and SoCal already has its first dark and dastardly lineup locked and loaded, compliments of Minimal Effort: All Hallow’s Eve.
Topping the bill for the event’s fifth anniversary is the endlessly talented polymath, Bonobo, hosting his own Outlier stage. Just below is the UK groove machine Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs alongside Machinedrum‘s collaborative project with Jimmy Edgar, JETS, which will serve as a welcomed departure from the expected house and techno roster.
Over the last five years, Minimal Effort has booked some of the most revered DJs on earth for their annual Halloween spectaculars. Boys Noize, Lee Burridge, Anja Schneider, and MK are just a few of the heavyweights who have made appearances on the All Hallow’s front, and considering the party’s host, Underrated Presents, is still free from any conglomerate backing from potentially domineering parent companies like its similarly curated competitors, the event is primed for harrowing and uninhibited Halloween antics.
