First Ever Supernatural Festival Brought Spooky Vibes To Denver
If you’ve been in the Denver area during the month of October, there’s a good chance you’ve heard of its most spooky EDM event, Hallofreaknween. This rave, run by Global Dance, ran for twenty years and featured big names from Above & Beyond to Borgeous. However, this year Global Dance announced that they would be discontinuing the event. From the ashes of Hallofreaknween rose a new event, Supernatural Festival, and its vibes were just as haunting as every year before!
Supernatural Festival took place this past Saturday, October 28th, at the National Western Complex near downtown Denver. Like Hallofreaknween, it was a 16+ event, allowing lots of different age groups to enjoy the music. People came dressed as unicorns, zombies, angels…or just simply themselves. The event hosted tons of local artists, as well as big names such as Alesso, Carnage, Black Tiger Sex Machine, Infected Mushroom, Ferry Corsten, Martin Solveig, Audien, Trajikk, Terravita, and so many others.
So, what were the main differences between the old-school Hallofreaknween and the inaugural Supernatural Festival? Quite frankly, there weren’t a ton of differences. Both events hosted big names, had a large crowd of different ages come out, and took place in the same venue.
The most significant difference between the two had to be the number of stages. While Hallofreaknween was known for having a few small stages in addition to the large main arena, Supernatural Festival had eight stages total. Eight! This made it possible for nearly 100 artists to get to perform their talents in the course a one-night-only event. Truly incredible!
Another big difference this year was the time that went into the decoration process. Especially the main stage, otherwise known as the “Immortal Arena”, was completely decked out. There were huge chains that ran across the ceiling and made their way down to the stage. There were also two giant ghoul-like figures, one on each side of the stage, to add an extra eeriness to the event.
Whether you were at Supernatural Festival, another Halloween rave, or just doin’ your own thing, we hope you had a fun and safe Halloween!
Feel like you missed out? Never fear, there’s always next year! And we have a feeling that Supernatural will be around for a long time to come.
