It’s always exciting news when Suwannee Hulaween unveils the festival theme and I think this year’s “Stringier Things” is the most creative yet. I can’t wait to do some thrift store hunting for headbands and leg warmers! See below for the official announcement which includes additions to the already magical lineup:
Today, Silver Wrapper and Purple Hat Productions announce the #HulaweenFL 2016 costume theme as “Stringier Things”, which will celebrate vintage 1980s supernatural horror / pop culture, inspired by the Netflix TV Show “Stranger Things”. We can’t wait to see what kind of creatively kooky costumes are on display!
In other exciting news, there are 3 new additions to the original lineup, adding to the festival’s depth and prestige. Suwannee Hulaween challenges festival goers to step outside the norm and explore the new, the fresh, and the worthy that will be on display throughout their attendance.
Additions include the newly formed RB&B supergroup Russo, Benevento, & Burbridge (consisting of drummer Joe Russo, keyboardist Marco Benevento, and bassist Oteil Burbridge), London-based indie/pop duo Oh Wonder and Brooklyn’s afrobeat / jazz ensemble Antibalas.
The String Cheese Incident will headline all three nights with My Morning Jacket, Disclosure (DJ Set), Logic, Umphrey’s McGee, Sts9, The Claypool Lennon Delirium, Big Gigantic (Ft. The Motet), Rebelution, Anderson .Paak & The Free Nationals and more.
The Thursday Pre-Party also features a stacked lineup of diverse artists on multiple stages including two sets of prog-rock jam scene stalwarts Umphrey’s McGee, groundbreaking Americana quintet Greensky Bluegrass, and experimental all-improv electronic duo EOTO & Friends, SCI keyboardist’ side project, Kyle Hollingsworth Band along with Marco Benevento, Fruition, The Werks, GanjaWhiteNight, The Heavy Pets, Late Night Radio, Con Brio, and more.
For 2016, the event producers have announced the addition of a brand new stage to Suwannee Hulaween. Located near the horse stable camping area, the new stage will help eliminate congestion at the Amphitheater Stage and will be comparable in size and space.
Attendees can also explore Spirit Lake – an experiential artistic glowing menagerie of multimedia metalwork, paintings, sculptures, light projections and live performances that morphs the prehistoric-looking forest into a vivid dream-like space. Although the event producers are not ready to unveil any secrets, Spirit Lake is promised to be larger than ever before, with additional installations and surprises.
Suwannee Hulaween will also feature theme nights, yoga, workshops, and endless interactive activities throughout the weekend.
