A First Timers Guide To Suwanee Hulaween
Hulaween is officially sold out. Ever since 2013, the music festival has stood beside its quirk. The camping festival is a one of a kind experience along with something extremely special that seems to resonate in everyone we interviewed. You’ve heard of the vibes at Electric Forrest. You’ve heard of the unexplainable emotions at TomorrowWorld, but will you be able to handle Hulaween?
Hulaween 2017 and What To Expect
When a festival blows up, one misconception comes forward. That they’re catering to the masses and only sold out to make money. Apparently though, Suwanee Hulaween is far from that misconception. A festival known for it’s incredible venue, diverse demographic of attendees and musical acts, and of course, magical vibes; it doesn’t seem like anyone is worried about the quality of it’s epicness being diluted.
We took a moment to ask some people about what to expect and here’s what they said about the festival and their first time at Hulaween.
Anon: I mean obviously, give an OPEN perspective. Take everything in at once and make sure to check out all of the events going on. You won’t regret it. Hulaween REALLY has a little of everything and a LOT of other things you’d never expect.
Warren: I heard about it back in 2015 during Miami Music week while I was living in Florida but I wasn’t able to attend that year. After doing some research I heard some pretty amazing things about the venue itself on top of the insane production that is brought there for Hulaween. My first time left me seriously impressed. The lineup is very diverse, so I’m also stoked about discovering new music that I could potentially introduce my friends too on their first Hulaween.
Sean: Heard about Hulaween from many different people during my venturing to different festivals. One of the things that really had me interested in attending was the rumors I’ve heard about the production. I saw pictures, videos and heard stories from friends, but was thrown back once I actually saw everything. Who ever puts that festival together really thinks past the normal 1,2,3 and clearly brings something SUPER unique that people have never seen before. Me being blown away would be an understatement.
Mackenzie B: I first heard about Hulaween in 2013. I went with my brother on a whim. We drove down from Virginia to the park. Hulaween is the only camping Halloween party I’ve ever been to. I feel like, because it’s camping, the community is stronger there. No one has hotel rooms to go back to and hide, so you end up sitting around fires and chatting. Truly a unique experience meeting so many, damn good people.
Mackenzie: It’s really just the music. I wouldn’t go if their lineup was trash. Luckily, their lineup is always fire. Which… I was also surprised when I learned we were allowed to have fires by the way, because they’ve been banned at almost every festival I’ve been too.
One of my favorite things about the party is late night fire chats with neighbors. People are magnets to fires and you meet some interesting people having one.

Anon: I would just explore to be completely honest with you. It’s not about the music. It’s more about the production and everything going on.
