Suwannee Hulaween Unveils Eclectic, Genre-Bending 2022 Lineup: SCI, CloZee, Black Pumas, STS9, Rainbow Kitten Surprise, More
Suwannee Hulaween has unveiled its star-studded, dynamic lineup for the festival’s ninth edition, returning home to the Spirit of the Suwannee Music Park in Live Oak, Florida from October 27th -October 30th.
Since its inception in 2013, the Halloween-themed music, arts and camping festival has evolved into one of the country’s most coveted cross-genre affairs. Curating dynamic lineups that range from electronic, jam, and indie to bluegrass, funk, soul and hip-hop, Suwannee Hulaween’s ability to abolish genre confines is evident year after year.
In what promises to be one of the most exciting editions yet, 2022 will host inaugural festival performances from live headliners like the six-time GRAMMY nominees Black Pumas, alternative rock/indie band Rainbow Kitten Surprise, Atlanta rapper J.I.D and groovy quartet Fearless Flyers. Veteran live headliners returning to Hulaween include Portland’s award-winning Portugal. The Man, fan-favorite psychedelic band STS9, electronic pop duo Sylvan Esso, prestigious jam-band The Disco Biscuits, and of course three epic performances from Hulaween’s original flag-bearers The String Cheese Incident.
