Suwannee Hulaween 2023 Shines Bright with the Return of Pretty Lights!
Suwannee Hulaween is preparing for a spectacular Halloween event for its 10th anniversary from October 26-29. The highly anticipated gathering is taking place at its residence in Live Oak, Florida’s magnificent Spirit of Suwannee Park. This year is set to be Hulaween’s most monumental installment yet, as it unveiled its lineup and revealed that it will be among the first festivals hosting the return of beloved musician Pretty Lights! He will be showcasing a brand new live band ensemble and closing the festival’s iconic main stage on Saturday night. This will be one of the electronic music legend’s initial events back since his hiatus after his red rocks show in 2018. Fans have eagerly awaited and kept the hope alive for his return over the years. His only festival stop in the South couldn’t have come at a better time or a more enchanting location other than Hulaween.
The enthralling atmosphere and harmonious community present at Hulaween makes it an unmatched festival to savor the best that the music scene has to offer. This year’s lineup consists of groundbreaking artists from a diverse range of genres including electronic, folk, hip-hop, funk, and much more. Keeping the tradition alive, festival founders The String Cheese Incident will play spellbinding sets curated specially for the event. Manic Focus, Lab Group, John Summit, and Eprom are among some of the producers and DJs set to perform in 2023. On the jam band spectrum, artists such as Goose, Trey Anastasio Band, Pigeons Playing Ping Pong, and Lettuce will keep the funk flowing. Check out the lineup in its full glory below!
