Suwannee Hulaween 2016: Ghosts, Ghouls, and Grooves
There are innumerable amounts of ways that you could have spent your Halloween this October, as is the case every year. But for the last four years, there’s been one party that has proven itself triumphant among a sea of celebrations. A place rich in culture, thriving in spirit; a beloved land draped in Spanish Moss, hammocks strung as far as the eye can see, a truly majestic musical wonderland. If you aren’t catching my drift here, I’m talking about none other than Suwannee Hulaween Music Festival in Live Oak, FL – an event that has aptly been dubbed the “Electric Forest of the South”, due to its aggressively expanding popularity and of course, multiple sets from the ever-talented String Cheese Incident. Hulaween has undoubtedly become Suwannee’s most successful ongoing festival, attracting tens of thousands of live music lovers from coast to coast, all swarming like moths to a flame to get a taste of the sweet spirit of Suwannee.

The 4th Annual Suwannee Hulaween With Some Colorado Flavor
Halloween time is just around the corner. Soon the leaves will turn, the weather will be cool and crisp. Delectable Fall aromas will fill the air, as well as heaping loads of bass of varying FREAKquencies, at least for those attending the fourth annual Suwannee Hulaween. Vibes, tribes, ghosts, and ghouls will flood the spanish-moss draped scenery of The Spirit of the Suwannee Music Park yet again for this spooktacular event, hosted by The String Cheese Incident, that has grown vastly popular in just a few short years. This sudden success comes as no surprise when you look at the legendary names that have graced the sacred Suwannee grounds since the introduction of Hula in 2013 – including STS9, Big Gigantic, Emancipator, Thievery Corporation, Shpongle, Pretty Lights, Primus, Griz and Odesza just to name a few, solidifying the event as one that integrates a multitude of genres and attracts patrons from all over the country.
Silver Wrapper and Purple Hat Productions are pulling out all of the stops to ensure that this is the most extraordinary musical extravaganza to date in Hula history, and they have curated yet another incredible lineup for 2016, including some names from the OG Hulaween and other iterations of the festival. As always, The String Cheese Incident remains the constant in the equation, as the band is scheduled to perform all three nights. SCI has been the main attraction year after year due to their enormous fan base that travels far and wide to witness their eclectic and energetic live sets that fluctuate between a staggering amount of genres – one minute they are strumming out some bluegrass and folk-inspired tunes, then reggae, then they transition to live renditions of EDM tracks. Their success among festivals like Hulaween and Electric Forest can be widely attributed to their ability to keep people on their toes from the beginning to the end of their sets, and will continue to return to these renowned events year after year.
