Minimal Effort: Halloween Review
Beneath all the Halloween chaos that fell upon Los Angeles, one event stood out. Minimal Effort: Halloween, now on its third year, was an outstanding success. With 3 stages, 26 DJ’s, and over 3500 people filling the Los Angeles Center Studio lots, it was definitely a sight to see. From the second Minimal Effort dropped it’s innovative and diverse Halloween lineup, it geared itself up to be a something special.
The night kicked off with some amazing local talents such as Matt Ossentjuk, Human Resources, and Bones. Before diving deep into the techno abyss with the likes of Steve Bug, Pete Tong, and Jonas Rathsman. It chugged forward with top notch performances by Pete Tong and Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs. And then ended with a very special live LA debut performance by Tiga. His debut performance was one for the ages. The large crowd went wild as he performed hits such as Let’s Go Dancing, Planet E, and Bugatti live.
Although the event was small compared to the likes of Escape From Wonderland , another large Halloween festival in SoCal during the same weekend; The tremendous amount of work put into every inch of production could be seen in each phase. From the stage design to the layout, they made every inch count. Minimal Effort: Halloween went above and beyond to bring a much-needed festival feel to Downtown Los Angeles. The sound bleed was non-existent, and at no point did it feel as if was their not enough room to dance around with friends. Minimal Effort has already announced it’s massive New Year’s Lineup in the same location and it is already shaping up to be an event for the books. Tickets go on sale November 7th, so make sure to snatch them up before it is too late.
