Ensure great Halloween weekend by attending FreakNight 2015 in Tacoma, WA
Still unsure what to do with your Halloween weekend? If you want to ascertain your Halloween holiday is filled with sweet sounds and spooky specters, you can’t miss FreakNight 2015 in Tacoma, WA. This year’s two-day festival will transform the Tacoma Dome into an otherworldly experience for those of all tastes.
USC Events is excited to present the Northwest’s 19th annual FreakNight festival, which will take place October 30 and 31. Festival attendees will be greeted by a truly unique experience, and this wicked two-night engagement will not only include world-class talent, but will feature twisted circus performers, bone-chilling rides, and bloodcurdling beats.
FreakNight promises to serve up a platter of musical treats, with an enticing lineup that features world-renowned headliners such as Deadmau5, Tiesto, Adventure Club, Carnage, Diplo, Nero, Nicky Romero, and Pete Tong. FreakNight 2015 will feature three stages, with a total of 48 artists over the two nights.
On the first night, there will be an All Gone Pete Tong stage blasting more techno, house, and deep house sounds, featuring more underground artists like Hot Since 82 and Fury and MC Dino.
Night 2 promises more musical ear candy, as well as all-trance stage! Words cannot begin to describe the excitement for this stage, and I can barely quell the butterflies of anticipation that flutter when I think about what’s to come. Guests are in for a treat with sets by ATB, Myon and Shane 54, and Simon Patterson. To sweeten the deal, festival-goers can catch Infected Mushroom’s set to get their psytrance fill, as the Israeli duo will be going back to their roots, promising to play their first three albums.
Of all of the artists, I’m most looking forward to seeing Tiesto because I’ve heard such amazing things about his live sets and you know, because he’s only been one of the most influential innovators of the entire scene. I’m also really stoked to finally see Nicky Romero live because I missed seeing him at Ultra Korea after he cancelled at the last minute, claiming to be ill (others could argue it was unconfirmed fear of the MERS virus that was going around Korea at the time). I also can’t wait to see Claude VonStroke and Nero on the first night, and Adventure Club, Don Diablo, and Myon and Shane 54 the second.
In addition to offering up incredible musical options, the production team is busy creating their own world of ghoulish possibilities. I recently got to catch up with Elle Matthews, a key member of the USC Events Production team. She told me they are all very excited about all of the opportunities that this year’s FreakNight offers, being at Tacoma Dome. While veteran FreakNight attendees are used to the event being held at the WaMu Theater in Seattle, this year’s new venue will allow for the production team to do something different and surprising.
Despite having a smaller capacity, the Tacoma Dome offers much more space than the WaMu Theater, allowing for a greater opportunity for production creativity. The Tacoma Dome has a smaller capacity at 17,000 people, 3,000 less than WaMu; however, this will serve to give the event a more intimate feel, making it even easier to make new friends and maybe even meet that rave bae of your dreams.
This year’s event aims to please all. The Production team is incredibly dedicated to making sure that everyone is happy and having a good time, while really focusing on developing the areas that fans will appreciate. There will be a plethora of different effects. From pyrotechnics and fun fireworks to confetti and balloon drops – they’re going the whole nine yards.
FreakNight’s creepy carnival challenges you to face your fears. Ride the menacing merry-go-round, check out the terrifying Tornado, and be sure to brace yourself on the bumper cars. Next, the spooky sideshow stage will awe and shock attendees with its spell-binding sideshow performers. Fire breathers will blow your mind while aerialists, gogo dancers, and contortionists will twist your grasp on reality. As with any haunted Halloween fete, costumed revelers can partake in the costume contest which offers an enchanting winner’s prize of $2,015!
Of course, no FreakNight would be complete without its signature Twisted Circus. USC Events has its own batch of tricks up its sleeve, and could only promise that the sinister circus is in every aspect at the core of all FreakNight creations. Finally, FreakWeek kicks off this week, with the official FreakNight Pre-Party and thrilling performances at Foundation Nightclub in Seattle.
The mystical and monstrous mayhem promises to leave all thoroughly thrilled to the bone- don’t let the opportunity vanish. Two-day and single day tickets are available here, and this year, shuttle transportation to and from the Tacoma Dome is available with round trip shuttles from Tacoma hotels, Seattle, Whistler, Spokane, Burnaby, and Portland.
