Halloween has become a big opportunity for promotion companies to host their own Halloween shows & festivals. React Presents has been hosting Freaky Deaky since 2008, with it getting bigger, spookier & scarier every year in the city of Chicago. It started out as one day event expanding to Detroit getting 5,500 attendees, then became a two day festival with over 9,000 attendees, making it the biggest Halloween festival in the Midwest! Now today, it has become a 3 day music festival and it’s bigger than ever before! Last year, the festival took place at the Aragon Ballroom, the festival has now been relocated to Toyota Park with 3 stage designs that will blow you away consisting of “The Big Top”, “The Shrine” & “The Crypt”. You can check out 2 of these spooky designs here.
React Presents has been well known in the Chicago community with their big summer festival, Spring Awakening, every year at Soldier Field. With talent like Jack U, Martin Garrix & Hardwell performing, you know Freaky Deaky will have a fantastic lineup. This year’s headliners of Bassnectar, Armin Van Buuren & Pretty Lights are more than enough of a reason to attend the spooky festival. What’s unique about Freaky Deaky is that it’s a rap/dance mix of artists. Not only will those previously mentioned Dance headliners be performing, but also Rap artists 2 Chainz, Mac Miller, Joey BadA$$ & More will be performing too. You can check out the whole lineup here including set times to build your own custom schedule and decide which artists you’ll be seeing.
