Founded in 2008, the Freaky Deaky Music Festival takes place over the weekend of October 30 – November 1 in Chicago, Illinois. The festival celebrates the spooky holiday with an abundance of Halloween-themed music, art, games, and carnival rides. There’s also a costume contest and art exhibits. The three-day festival is a fun, family-friendly event that offers something for everyone.
Tickets for this festival are usually age-based, and the event typically requires that attendees be at least 18 years old. However, you may want to check the exact age requirements before purchasing your tickets. The festival is usually held rain or shine, so dress accordingly. In case of rain, bring an umbrella, and wear appropriate clothes. It’ll be a great way to keep cool while you’re enjoying the massive stage production. Lasers and sound systems are used to create the atmosphere, and your outfit will stand out from the crowd.
Several top electronic artists have headlined the festival, including Deadmau5. His performances will surely bring the crowd to their feet. The festival will also feature performances by the likes of Kaskade and AC Slater. Aside from these acts, the festival will also feature a Fringe World stage that will have a live mayor.
The Freaky Deaky festival takes place over three days. There’s a camping area on site, and proceeds from the event will benefit a number of local nonprofit organizations. Last year, the festival donated over $150,000 to military charities and first responders. Additionally, it has donated to the Houston Food Bank and Texas Association of First Responders.
