Festy News: The Top 5 Reasons You Should Be Celebrating Halloween At Suwannee Hulaween


The Top 5 Reasons You Should Attend Suwannee Hulaween:

The String Cheese Incident has brought the crazy back to Live Oak, FL with the second year of Suwannee Hulaween. The inaugural festival was held last year in the Spirit of the Suwannee Music Park, and with the overwhelmingly positive response, there was little doubt that it would return this year. So here we are! Gearing up for round 2, I’ve compiled some of the top reasons to attend this year’s festival.


  1. Because It’s Florida in October

    Chances are fairly good that you don’t live somewhere where it’s 70s and 80s at the end of October, chances are also fairly good that this will be the weather during the festival.


  1. Costumes!

    Festival goers are very creative people, and think about all that creativity transpiring into magnificently spooky Halloween costumes…fun stuff.


  1. Suwannee Grounds

    If you’ve been there, you know they’re beautiful, if you haven’t been there, I’m sure you’ve been told how beautiful it is. The spell binding beauty of the Spirit Lake was evident last year, and the displays are sure to be glorious again this year.


  1. Creature Carnival Tour…on Halloween

    When Beats Antique was announced in the first wave of artists, many began to speculate that Emancipator and Shpongle would be added as well, given that the Creature Carnival Tour (containing all three acts) was passing through Florida during the festival and Beats already being announced. These speculations turned out to be accurate when the second wave of artists were announced, and going one step further…the festival decided to schedule all three acts on Oct. 31st, for what is sure to be a carnival indeed.


  1. Cheese, Cheese, Cheese

    3 sets on Halloween, and all 3 nights of the festival. The String Cheese Incident always puts on a spectacle, and given that they curated the festival, you can bet it will be a big one. Last year contained a Halloween set of covers that featured all the members in wild costumes, special guest, aerialists, and a light show that is unparalleled.

And that is why you need to escape the city hustle and bustle by making your way down to Florida for Hulaween! Suwannee Hulaween takes place this October 31st through November 2nd at The Spirit Of The Suwannee Music Park in Live Oak, Florida. Tickets are available online here or at the gate.
