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!

Camp Bisco 6 welcomes in a new-era of internationalism and diversity.  In addition to three nights of epic Disco Biscuits sets, Camp Bisco will host Simon Posford, OTT and YOUTH as they bring their dub circus project, Hallucinogen: In Dub to the states for its first ever U.S. appearance!  Also confirmed: Israeli trance band Infected Mushroom, the stretched and skewed soundscapes of Brazilian ex-pat Amon Tobin, stunning sample craftsman Girl Talk, dance-punker The Juan Maclean, precision jammers Umphrey’s McGee, Sound Tribe Sector 9 (playing a live set one night and a PA set the other), Adam Deitch featuring Slick Rick and The Adam Deitch Project, underground heavyweight Bassnectar, innovative dance music by The Bays, a soulful DJ set by King Brit of Digable Planets fame, experiemental rockers Benzos, Allston, MA based Indobox, world-beat collective The Afromotive, plus Zilla, EOTO, The Join (featuring Jamie Shields & Darren Shearer of The New Deal and Tom Hamilton & Clay Parnell of Brothers Past), The Grimace Federation, Digital Frontier, Strut, Caveman, Telepath, Psylab, and Orchard Lounge.  

In addition to three nights and two full days of music, Camp Bisco 6 will offer unlimited car camping, plus RV and family camping areas, daily “Color Wars” festivities which have become a signature Camp Bisco pastime, and of course plenty of food and craft vendors.  Indian Lookout Country Club, located in Mariaville New York just ½ hour from Albany and 3 hours from both Boston and New York City, boasts 200 acres of serene rolling hills and natural beauty, and such amenities as flush toilets and showers.

String Cheese Incident ends with summer tour, Big Summer Classic

The String Cheese Incident has announced their 2007 Summer Tour, and the end of an era as the band calls it quits.  In the fall of 2006, SCI announced it would make no plans beyond summer 2007, as SCI guitarist Billy Nershi would be leaving the group for other endeavors.

During their 2007 Summer Tour, the band will stop in cities they hold dear and will rework last summer's landmark tour, Big Summer Classic.

Post-Bonnaroo, they'll kick things off with three nights at New York's Beacon Theatre.  Then they'll head west, before heading to Salem, MO for the return of the Big Summer Classic, now a three-day camping festival on the weekend of August 3-5. 

In the tradition of the inaugural BSC tour in summer of 2005, the festival will feature friends and SCI offshoots.  Confirmed so far are Los Lobos, Yonder Mountain String Band, JJ Grey & MOFRO, The Wailers, EOTO and others will be announced. Visit www.bigsummerclassic.com for more information.

The tour will end at Red Rocks Amphitheatre in Colorado, where it all began.
