Today, Silver Wrapper and Purple Hat Productions are happy to announce the #HulaweenFL 2016 costume theme as "Stringier Things", which will celebrate vintage 1980s supernatural horror / pop culture, inspired by the Netflix TV Show "Stranger Things". We can't wait to see what kind of creatively kooky costumes are on display!
In other exciting news, we unveil 3 new additions to the original lineup, adding to the festival's depth and prestige. Suwannee Hulaween challenges festival goers to step outside the norm and explore the new, the fresh, and the worthy that will be on display throughout their attendance.
Additions include the newly formed RB&B supergroup Russo, Benevento, & Burbridge (consisting of drummer Joe Russo, keyboardist Marco Benevento, and bassist Oteil Burbridge), London-based indie/pop duo Oh Wonder and Brooklyn's afrobeat / jazz ensemble Antibalas.
