Each year Chicago gets massive summer festivals but nothing has been done for Halloween in the past, at least nothing as massive as what’s in store for this year. Freaky Deaky Halloween in the past has been a string of shows with a few headliners at local venues but nothing to the size of this. The lineup has a great combination of both electronic and hip hop acts for an extremely diverse event. Starting off with the hip hop we have 2 Chainz as well as Mac Miller who is ready to drop a new album. Also Vic Mensa who always kills it for his home town. On top of that the Versace king RiFF RAFF, Logic, and Joey Bada$$ will make for a top tier hip hop showing.
Bassnectar, Armin Van Buuren, and Pretty Lights sit atop the bill with an insane list of artists to follow below them. Richie Hawtin is making his way back to Chicago for a long overdue performance. Also Gessaffelstein will be back after everyone thought we would never get to see him again. You’ve got the funk going down with both Griz and Big Gigantic. Trap music representatives include Mr. Carmack, Grandtheft, and Keys N Krates. Also bring your dancing shoes for names like Tchami, Oliver Heldens, and Shiba San. Going through this lineup is literally like a kid opening presents on Christams day. Each time I go down the list there’s somebody else I didn’t notice before.
Freaky Deaky is happening Oct 30th-Nov 1st. and tickets are available now. All information can be found here. Get ready Chicago!
