The third day of the 2018 Suwannee Hulaween was just right with the sun shining, perfect weather after a morning rain, and music, music, music! There are still two more huge days filled with famous artists from across America and Europe jammin' this weekend!

Located at Spirit of the Suwannee Music Park (SOSMP) in Live Oak, Fla., Suwannee Hulaween's home for the past six years, this indescribable, award winning festival brought dozens of artists Friday who poured out incredible music throughout the afternoon and evening. Day three was the best yet! String Cheese Incident (hosts of Suwannee Hulaween), Melody Trucks Band, Albert Simpson and the Contingent, Future Rock, Rezz, Emancipator Ensemble, Odesza, Snake Hips, STS9, The Malah, Garajmahl, Dixon's Violin and with many more playing on four stages had the happy fans dancing in their Halloween costumes or just laid back enjoying the overwhelming music.

A morning storm moved across the SOSMP but ended just in time for the events of the day with bright, sunshine filling the skies, bringing on the music for the remainder of the day.

Within this city of 20,000 music festival fans are folks from all over the United States – Florida, Colorado, Illinois and on and on. They share that they love the SOSMP and return over and over again to festivals at this 800 acres of sheer beauty nestled along the banks of the Suwannee River.

Toubab Krewe will kick off the music at 12:30 p.m. on the Meadow Stage followed by Lettuce then String Cheese Incident will perform from 4:30 – 5:45 p.m., return at 6:45 – 8 p.m. and 9 – 10:30 p.m!
