Suwannee Hulaween in Live Oak, Florida is one of the most reputable festivals among our community from being hosted by The String Cheese Incident, to having one of the most beautiful venue locations in the world, and consistently breaking the barrier and bringing in some of the best of the best artists that cover sounds of all types. This festival is built around Jam bands and various electronic acts that diversify the lineup to an extreme allowing for gnarly conflicts and much travel time going between stages catching the artists you crave. Year in and year out The String Cheese Incident headlines the festival with multiple sets (This year has not been confirmed for multiple sets yet or not,) and we couldn’t be more stoked. They throw down the best costume parties with themed performances that radiate throughout the crowd. Talking about costumes and themes, if you plan on going, make sure to leave extra space for packing campsite decorations! Some people really go all out on their halloween set ups and it makes the walk to and from your camp to music ‘oh so much better’ and interesting!
Hulaween seems to always book amazing jam band artists and some notable ones for this ’22 lineup is pretty mind-bending! This year they got some of the best and most sought out acts being, Sound Tribe Sector-9 (STS9), Lettuce, and The Disco Biscuits. That alone is enough reason for many jam-band lovers to join the festivites of Suwannee Hulaween, but then you add in other bands like Rainbow Kitten Surprise, Leftover Salmon, Portugal. The Man, Black Pumas, and many more, and you got yourself a weekend of amazing musicians that will fill your time up properly.
But oh is there quite the lineup for electronic music lovers too. Louis the Child, Fisher, Jauz, Gigantic NGHTMRE, Liquid Stranger (w/ a Wakaan Takeover), and CloZee are the big name headliners announced. Thats not even diving into the smaller, but equally just as epic names, such as Jantsen, Ravenscoon, Tape B, Zingara, Eazybaked and many more!
This festival truly calls to all aspects of psychedelic festival lovers. It covers so much musical range while having an insane amount of art installations scattered throughout the swamp. One of the stages is tucked away out by Spirit Lake, one of the attractions to the music park, and in that area, you walk into a psychedelic explosion that can’t be found anywhere else. Topped with Spanish Moss trees and the immaculate vibes of Suwannee, Hulaween is one of our favorite festivals that should not be missed out on. Experience it while you can this year and grab tickets ASAP as they are selling out fast!
