The days are getting shorter, the nights a bit colder, and we have our full FreakNight 2015 lineup. Yup our favorite fall festival is right around the corner. A blend of Northwest-favorites, some rare treats, and possibly a few tricks as well, the artists that will be joining us in the Tacoma Dome this Halloween fit right in with the top-notch artists continually making their way to our region. If there were ever a way for USC Events to follow-up a festival that featured Skrillex and Armin van Buuren, it’s with deadmau5 and NERO. Adding Tiësto, Adventure Club, Bad Royale, Sub Focus, and more, is like trick-or-treating through the same neighborhood for the sake of King-Sized Butterfingers, and never getting caught.
As part of our prep for FreakNight, and every major Northwest festival, we like to get familiar with the artists we’ll be getting freaky with. While sorting out costumes, hotels, rides, and more, it’s easy to forget about the abundance of talent performing throughout the two-day event. So, learn a little and listen a little to each and every artist performing at FreakNight this fall, sorted by genre, with our second-annual artist guide.
Getting an early-start generally makes for a less stressful event, and with how busy we’re all becoming as fall sets in, buying tickets and sorting out hotels should be done as soon as possible. You can get your tickets, for either the entire festival or a specific night, to FreakNight 2015 online here, and keep up with info on the event via the Facebook event page here.
NOTE: Of course, when sorting 70+ artists by genre, we were left with some difficult decisions. Please realize that these are obviously not the only genres many of these artists are known for, or the only style of music they play. Eventually, some artists had to fit into a genre, and we’re sure you understand. We’ve also added the ‘mainstage’ genre, to describe artists whose music is typical of what you’d find at the biggest stages at most festivals.
