Five Must-See Live BandsĀ 

The String Cheese IncidentĀ 

The masterminds of it all, The String Cheese Incident created Hulaween in 2013. This invigorating live band features seven band members and mind-boggling production techniques you can hear within their sound. The String Cheese Incident has kept folks moving on their feet since 1993 at festivals like The Peach, Electric Forest, and tons more. Don’t miss out on the OG’s!

Magic City HippiesĀ 

The Magic City Hippies specialize in a melting pot of funk, pop, beach-bum soul, and hip-hop, giving them the self-proclaimed genre of ‘indie-funk.’ Magic City Hippies give off the feelings of an electronic dance party, blended into the beautiful sounds of live instruments. This is a band that delivers immense energy to its attendees and one we seriously recommend you catch live.

Greensky Bluegrass

This band exists in a couple places at once, being both a rock and bluegrass band. Greensky Bluegrass plays acoustic instruments, focuses on extended improvisation, and delivers a rock ‘n roll show. The band has been touring all across the United States during the summer of 2021, from Colorado all the way to North Carolina, and they have now expanded their tour throughout the fall season into November. Greensky Bluegrass is scheduled to play numerous festivals in the coming months including 4848 Festival and Strings & Sol Festival. They will appear at Red Rocks Amphitheater for three consecutive performances in September as well. Don’t miss this uber-uber-talented band come Hulaween!

Leon Bridges

Leon Bridges delivers feelings that are straight from the heart. Leon Bridges brings 1950’s-60’s southern soul music back into the 21st century. Leon Bridges kicks off his “Gold-Diggers Sound” tour this week and will continue to tour through the states into the middle of 2022. He is bringing many special guests along for his tour including Abraham Alexander, The Marias, and Chiiild. We are eager to see their performance at Hulaween! Amongst his incredible lyrics and soul-touching voice – you will not want to miss this beautiful live show.

An incredible live rock band that delivers covers of The Grateful Dead, these guys know how to put on a show.
