Additionally, the event will witness the return of Spirit Lake featuring psychedelic media arts, otherworldly lighting design and bewitching projections deep in a wooded lakeside oasis. Suwannee Hulaween will also include theme nights, yoga, workshops, a speaker series and more.

“Suwannee Hulaween, our flagship event, turns 5 years old this year and feels like it’s finally flowered into a grown up. Between the ever evolving and diverse musical line up with a curated blend of Jam, Dance Music, Rock, and Hip Hop, along with with the experiential art experience of the Spirit Lake installation, back dropped by the natural beauty of the Spanish Moss laden oak tree forest at Spirit of the Suwannee, there is no better Halloween party in the world,” co-producer/talent buyer Michael Berg said of this year’s festival.
