The traditional candy might not pass for these Halloween events. When we were young we went door-to-door asking for sugar packed treats.

With all the massive Halloween celebrations and music festivals that fall on Halloween weekend, we felt it was necessary to build a list of our top 10 Halloween Weekend EDM events for your reference. These events were picked based off their lineups, reputations, and wickedness.
