Beale Street Music Festival is an annual poor weather magnet. Each May, as Memphis in May begins with the music fest held on the Mississippi River, it’s not so much an if or when it will rain – it’s more like “how much rain are we going to get?” Continue reading Greensky Bluegrass on the river

4th Annual Suwanne Hulaween – Stringier Things

4th Annual Suwannee Hulaween – Stringier Things
October 28th – 30th, 2016
Photographer/Writer: Brad Kuntz

It’s almost time for the 4th Suwannee Hulaween. The past three years Suwannee Hulaween has hosted some of the best music, scenery and good times many have experienced at a music festival. This year will no doubt be a grand time, with seven sets of The String Cheese Incident spread out over the three-day main event and a pre-party with EOTO on Thursday. Last year’s Hulaween attendance broke records at the Spirit of the Suwannee Music Park, but this year, tickets are limited to only 20,000.

This will be the first time My Morning Jacket will play at the Music Park. After seeing and hearing their stellar set at Lockn Fest in August, (MMJ stole that festival) everyone is looking forward to their performance. Other notable bands include Umphrey’s McGee, STS9, Big Gigantic (feat. The Motet), The Claypool Lennon Delirium, Gramatik, Lettuce, Greensky Bluegrass, Charles Bradley & His Extraordinaires, Snarky Puppy, The Revivalists, and Karl Denson’s Tiny Universe.

The art installations, live paintings and decorations that are scattered throughout the park seem to get better each year, the creativity is unsurpassed. Spirit Lake is a treat in itself with the spectacular light show that lasts all night long, casting patterns of color onto the tall cypress trees and the long tangles of dangling Spanish moss and the adult playground in a Spirit lake area with its own stage, fire dancers, fire statues, swing sets, moving lights, mazes, and mouths to sit in and pose with, landscape art and much more.

The costume theme is “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!
