Hulaween 2018: Diving Deep Into Spirit Lake {Playlist Included}

This year Suwannee Hulaween returns with a ‘swarm’ of talent and if this line up doesn’t tickle your fancy, well you need to look at the lineup again. Whoever was in charge of talent booking this year deserves a promotion because there is quite literally a little bit of something for everyone. Acts such as OdeszaSTS9, Tipper, CloZeeMinnesota, Jade CicadaRezzSVDDEN DEATHAction Bronson, The String Cheese Incident (& Eoto obviously) along with so many more talented artists and bands who will be gracing Spirit Lake for what is inevitably going to be a magical weekend! Full lineup can be seen above and make sure to scroll to the bottom of the page for our playlist and the ticket links if you haven’t grabbed tickets yet, do so soon!

While there are some absolutely incredible jam bands and more melodic styles of music present, we at the Chronic Electronic know the people like to let loose and get a little weird every now and then. This is especially true when Halloween rolls around and don’t you worry there will be ample opportunities throughout the weekend to let your freak flag fly and flop around like a wet noodle. There are some insane bass oriented sets that are sure to give you what you’re looking for. First and foremost the scratching legend Tipper, this is hands down our most anticipated set. If you have never experienced a Tipper set before, please buckle up and prepare for one of the most interesting and flat out mind numbingly spectacular moments of your life. This man teleports you into another universe where he makes the rules (there are no rules) and with the aid of his next level visuals takes you on a musical journey you couldn’t possibly fathom. We aren’t entirely sure what will be in store for all of us during this set but we are sure as hell going to enjoy the ride.

Would you say you like a darker deeper vibe? Oh boy do we have good news for you. Rezz will be gracing us with her presence and the price for admission is one soul. Her sets become more and more her unique with the vast majority of the set being her own music and it seems they just keep getting better. If you haven’t checked out her new album “A Certain Kind of Magic” well you have NO idea what you’re missing out on because it is an absolute masterpiece. The vibe Space Mom brings is going to fit the atmosphere of Hulaween like a spooky glove and all of those in attendance will be leaving hydrated, soulless, musically baffled, and quite possibly become a part of a cult. We promise missing this set will be a decision you regret, things are going to get pretty weird in there.

How about something that speaks to you on a spiritual level? Bringing a more exotic vibe the one and only CloZee will be present to put us under her melodic spell. This set will be a refreshing change of pace after some of the more uptempo sounds, with more natural and organic roots blended perfectly with her unique use of bass CloZee will inevitably transform the dance floor into a field of positive energy and put the people in a mood to move. Incorporating sounds from all walks of life and every corner of the world and given her classical guitar background she has become a one of a kind performer. CloZee is a breath of fresh air into a scene that desperately needs passionate gifted individuals to do what they love, this set will be one of the most intoxicating and fun experiences of the weekend.

Maybe something a little bit filthier is what you’re looking for, something with a little more bone shaking bass? Calling all head bangers and bass enthusiasts alike, Svdden Death is bringing the madness to Spirit Lake this year. This is guaranteed to be the heaviest set of the weekend with a clean crunchy sound that lights a primal fire inside your soul and just makes you want to get the heck down. We seriously suggest stretching prior, this will be a physically rigorous set considering the sheer amount of energy that will be flying around this set (who knows people might be literally flying around too).

This is just scratching the surface of the talent that will be performing at Hulaween, and considering this festival sold out last year you might want to pull the trigger on your tickets sooner rather than later. Beyond the music this festival is probably one of the best ways you could possibly celebrate Halloween, we promise you won’t regret it.
