Eight Spooky & Freakish Halloween EDM Music Festivals On Our Weather Radar Featuring Get Freaky, Hulaween, Supernatural, Necropolis & More.

Storm Coverage By: Garth Jones

Here is my listicle of – 8 Halloween Music Festivals You Need To Attend.

From a three-day festival thrill-seeking in the deserts of Utah, camping with your fellow undead mates in Texas, or hitting an afterparty on an island in the Midwest – these 8 music festivals are sure to ignite those Halloween candles inside the jack-o-lantern this spooky season.

Halloween and dance music together are quite simply the perfect maniacal marriage in holiday and music in North American culture. From hits like ‘The Monster Mash‘ and Michael Jackson’s ‘Thriller‘, its easy to imagine why the two are so ghoulishly cohesive. Costumes, decorations, lights, dark nights, and music, all live together as one under this light (with fog, of course).

Megastar artists like REZZ, Figure, Kayzo, and Ganja White Night have all been very well-known to having thematic and special Halloween musical-sets, LED visualizers, and/or tracks that are directly inspired by Hollywood‘s household horror and slasher film’s iconic property names.

For example, REZZ will be performing her highly-anticipated ‘Nightmare on REZZ Street’ at BOO! in Seattle at the WaMu Theater which is a highly-hallucinatory visualizer that holds it down on the slasher film vibes backed by her amazing and hypnotizing music.

Figure – in addition to his arsenal of neck-breaking dubstep and drumstep heaters, he also has an equally as large (if not THE largest) arsenal of spooky and scary works of art such as Jason’s Revenge, The Werewolf, Leatherface, Aliens, Michael Myers (is f**king DEAD) and just about every character in the Halloween universe.

Show up early, catch some opening acts and local talent from the regional area. Even they engineer their sets in festive and freakish ways to warm up the cool fall evening.
