String Cheese Incident's Suwannee Hulaween - Everything You Could Ask For - Oct 31st-Nov 2nd, 2013 - Live Oak, FL

A String Cheese Festival produces a special vibe matched by no other band.  There isn’t one particular adjective that can describe it, but once one experiences the magic for themselves they always carry it with them, forever altered from the education.  The celebration that is Hulaween, the name bestowed for S.C.I. Halloween extravaganzas.  Until now they have always been a historic run of shows in a city. But for the first time, it is a multi-band festival.  It will be spread out over three days, including seven sets of Cheese and a huge line-up more diverse than their sound.  If anyone has ever been to a Halloween Incident before or a Cheese festival, they must be drooling at the possibilities.  Since the weather is not conducive in the Rocky Mountains this time of year.  They could not have picked a more superior venue than the consummate grounds at The Spirit of the Suwannee Music Park and Campground.  Did I mention it's in sunny Florida?  I bet you're packing and I haven’t even told you the line-up yet.

 This impressive list of artists seemingly has everything to satisfy anybody's musical pallet. Whether it’s the jam-grass pioneers, Leftover Salmon, or the electronic inspired studs, STS9, it’s a safe bet you will need plenty of water.  The guitar virtuoso, Steve Kimock will also be on hand to seduce us with his electric fingers and extraordinary soul.  Big Gigantic will perform a late night set, so we can keep on dancing.
The compilation of musical talent is sure to add to this once in a lifetime experience. Since all the bands are friends, you can be assured historic collaborations will unfold everywhere.  But the music is only a fraction of this special occurrence.  String Cheese spares no expense when it comes to this particular holiday.  One can’t put a price tag on living inside a dream on the weekend usually reserved for nightmares.  Here’s hoping I see you in paradise.
