Halloween falls on a Friday this year, meaning you can treat yourself to all the festivities you want without having to worry about getting your gory costume makeup off in time for an 8am meeting with the boss. Thank you, spirits!
Due to the excellent timing, there are more incredible Halloween-related events than ever to take advantage of this year. There’s almost TOO much good stuff — from festivals like the BOO! Halloween Massive in NYC and the Voodoo Music + Art Experience in New Orleans to concerts like Queens of the Stone Age in LA and Bassnectar in Peoria, the sheer number of options is enough to leave you scared stiff.
But don’t let out a blood-curdling scream just yet — to help with your Halloween planning, we’ve put together a list of great Halloween events happening in October across the North America. We’ve even added in a few Day of the Dead (Día de los Muertos) events happening throughout the weekend on Nov. 1 and 2. Check out our picks to find the right event for you — or whoever you’re dressed up as.
We’ve been catching up with our talented #IWantFestTix winners about their festival experiences, and their stories are truly inspiring. Next up is Tracey E., whose stunning photograph of Muse frontman Matthew Bellamy earned her and 3 guests a trip to Outside Lands 2014 in San Francisco. Tracey is a budding photographer, and the trip gave her the opportunity to dig deeper into her passion — her prize package included a photo pit pass that allowed her to take professional photos alongside media photographers. Here’s what she had to say about the emotional experience:
We’ve been recapping with the winners of the #IWantFestTix Flyaway Contest, and so far their stories have given us serious FOMO (fear of missing out). Haseeb A.’s experience is no different — his moving photograph of a wheelchair-bound concertgoer crowd surfing earned him and three friends a trip to Los Angeles for HARD Summer. As he tells it, it was the perfect way to end the summer before heading back to school:
Earlier this year we put out the call for epic concert photos as part of the #IWantFestTix Flyaway Contest. The prize? An all-access festival experience for each winner to share with three lucky guests. Vanessa S. was our talented winner for Faster Horses 2014 in Michigan — her beautiful black and white photo of Keith Urban perfectly conveyed the exhilaration of the concert experience and left no doubt in our minds she would make the most of the weekend. As part of her prize she and her guests were flown out to the festival and given the full VIP treatment, including a backstage tour. Here’s what she had to say about the experience: Read the rest of this entry
Now that fall has arrived and school is underway, the warm, relaxing days of summer seem to be a distant memory in your rear view mirror. Up ahead, approaching faster than any of us would like to admit, is the holiday season. Pop-up Halloween stores seem to be everywhere you look. Thanksgiving décor will soon be inescapable. Then, of course, comes the holiday season. It’s known as the most wonderful time of year, but for some of us it feels like a last-minute scramble to buy gifts that we’ll stay up wrapping until 5 AM.
Despite the promises we made to ourselves last year to get our birthday and holiday shopping done early, here we are again at the eleventh hour with no gifts to give. Zilch. Zippo. Enter the Ticketmaster Gift Card.
The music industry is in a constant state of change, and it’s easy to forget about the past. With the internet and ever evolving mobile and web technology, it’s become effortless for someone to introduce a friend to new music. All it takes is a simple share, email or click to the cloud. Nowadays, no face to face exchange ever needs to even happen. Digital is a beautiful thing, but there is something to be said for the way “music used to be”.
The bad news: as summer gradually slips away, so have music festivals. The good news: we have photos and videos to reminisce on the great times and keep the memories alive for years to come. So join us as we take a stroll down memory lane with the top 14 festival moments of 2014.
