As Halloween approaches, music fans throughout the country are spoiled with choices as to where to travel to collect musical treats from their favorite bands. The Stringcheese Incident’s Hulaween has long been one of those prime destinations, but for 2013 the band (in conjunction with producers Silver Wrapper and Purple Hat Productions) decided to transform their customary costume party into a full-blown “Voodoo”-themed 3-day festival (October 31- November 2) at the legendary Spirit of Suwanee Music Park in Live Oak, Florida. With the promise of no overlapping sets, dueling late-night silent discos, and a visual arts installation dubbed the “Spirit Lake Promenade”, all set in a picturesque locale, this has all the makings of a landmark event.
The Hulaween schedule features seven full sets (including three sets on the 31st) from the hosts augmented by featured late night sets from festival stalwarts STS9 (Saturday) and Big Gigantic (Friday). The varied lineup also features sets from EDM powerhouses Conspirator, Future Rock and Emancipator, as well as diverse flavors of rock and roll from Steve Kimock & Friends, Van Ghost, Moon Taxi and The Main Squeeze and the four sets cryptically labeled only as the “Suwannee Bluegrass Surprise” seem to be an omen of some fast picking musical cross-pollenization.
