Suwannee Hulaween is one annual boutique gathering that is developing a devout following with its expert curation and wildly magical grounds. The Halloween weekend festival, running from October 26-28, 2018, hosts an impressive talent roster that brings an exceptional mixture of jamtronica, emergent bass, and deep house to The Spirit of the Suwannee Music Park in Live Oak, Florida.

Set in the midst of 800-acres of Spanish moss-draped oak and cypress along the black Suwannee River, and complete with the largest bat house in the southeast US, the storied festival grounds have earned a reputation of inexplicable imagination and exploration. 

Sitting atop this year’s festival billing is the longtime host band of the festival The String Cheese Incident, plus a top billing of Grammy award winners and nominees featuring live-electronic front runners ODESZA, a South-East exclusive by modern funk icons Jamiroquai, and very special showing by singer-songwriter Janelle Monae on the wake of her blowout Dirty Computer record.

The star-studded billing continues with the reigning king of west coast bass Tipper, five piece American funk band Vulfpeck, multiple sets by leaders of the post-rock dance movement STS9, the alternative radio chart topping wonder of The Revivalists, dark-electro wunderkind Rezz, plus the unique electronic stylings of Gramatik, NGHTMRE, Troyboi, Snakehips, Emancipator Ensemble, Manic Focus & the MF’n Band, Justin Martin, Kill Frenzy, Eats Everything and many more.

Tickets on sale now.

Suwannee Hulaween announces charitable causes around sold-out 2017 event

When Pretty Lights‘ sold-out destination festival Island of Light was canceled due to hurricane devastation on Puerto Rico, the producers of the event decided to turn their awareness towards relief efforts and raising money for victims.

As it happens, the production team at Silver Wrapper, who were set to produce Island of Light, happen to also be the producers of Hulaween. Therefore, their fifth annual halloween gathering, taking place the weekend of October 27 at Spirit of Suwannee Music Park in Live Oak, FL, will also provide those at home with a chance to not only be in on the action…but to do so through the act of giving.

This year, Silver Wrapper will be webcasting three String Cheese Incident sets as a pay-per-view stream, Oct. 27, 28, & 29, 2017, with every dollar being donated to hurricane relief funds. The producers believe Hulaween has the capacity to raise a lot of money for victims in their home state of Florida as well as Puerto Rico.

Hulaween is also running a food drive for a local Florida charity and a pre-party with all proceeds going to the same cause.
