With the cancellation announcement from Black Pumas…
“After four incredible years of career milestones and unforgettable live experiences around the world, we have made the difficult decision to press pause and step away from touring for the rest of the year. We have the best fans in the world and appreciate each and every one of you for your support and understanding. Thank you for giving us the opportunity to know you better.”

…much of #HulaFam was left wondering, who will be the replacement? Are there any new additions to the lineup? You know the Hulaween team is always going to deliver.
The Polish Ambassador
Teased as “someone funky that A LOT of y’all asked for,” The Polish Ambassador is joining the Hulaween lineup.
The Grammy nominated artist is set to close out the Femme House stage.
Joe Russo’s Almost Dead
The Grateful Dead cover band is saving the day and also heading down to The Spirit of the Suwannee Music Park to headline this year’s Suwannee Hulaween alongside The String Cheese Incident, Fisher, Portugal. The Man, Louis the Child, STS9, Rainbow Kitten Surprise, and so many others.
I know you know how much I love this festival. After two years without it — and after breaking a very serious pact I made with myself when I was eighteen, attending my first Hulaween, swearing I would never spend another Halloween anywhere else until myself or the festival came to an end — I’m desperately counting down the days until I’m, once again, wandering around Spirit Lake at unreasonable hours of the night, just trying to figure out where the ball pit is this time.
Someday we will need to analyze the transformation of this ball pit from year to year. Not today, but someday.
