Suwannee Hulaween is not going to take place this fall. With the loose promises of events returning later this year, it doesn’t look too good. Officials have shifted this event for 2021, with their focus on a strong comeback.
Event organizers released the following statement below regarding their future plans. While the live installment cannot take place, a virtual one will instead have to compensate.
Let’s not fret. They did everything they could with state officials and the environment during this COVID-19 pandemic. But the community and annual experience mean more than an unexpected shutdown. If we are to ever get our events back, we must try to stay and keep things together for the promoters.
For those that don’t know, Suwannee Hulaween is an annual music and camping festival held in Live Oak, Florida. Among one of the many national festivals held over Halloween weekend, has boasted stellar lineups including Bassnectar, Big Wild, and more.
Produced by Purple Hat Productions, it is held at the Spirit of the Suwannee Music Park campground. Four stages of music hold different artists, art installations, and a silent disco. Each year approximately 100 artists perform for the attendees for four days. Jam bands and electronic dance music artists alike have come together over the years to rock the show.
This year, a virtual replacement for the Hallow’s Eve weekend will take place. While it is not quite the experience that everyone is hoping for, we hope that it at least gives you something to dance to. We won’t let the quarantine ruin our holidays, right? While there is still music being played and streamed, we will still keep dancing until we can’t.
