A base of indie mixed with chunks of alternative rock, blended to perfection and topped with randomness is the recipe for WAUG's mix. Tune in for everything from Weezer to Kaki King, Coheed & Cambria to Del the Funky Homosapien. If it's good, we play it on WAUG.
Freaky Deaky Music Festival Releases 2016 Lineup!
Celebrating its 8th anniversary, the largest Halloween festival in the Midwest has recently announced a
stellar lineup for its 2016 spooktacular festival.
The 3 day festival will be held Oct. 28 through Oct. 30 at Toyota Park, just outside of downtown
Chicago in Bridgeview, Illinois. Featuring over 50 performers performing on 3 different stages, this
year’s installment of bone chilling bass and electronic beats promises to be one of the best to date.
This year’s headliners include none other than the master of House music, Tiesto, who closes out the
festival on Sunday night. Also included in the lethal lineup of headliners is UK duo, Disclosure; DJ
Snake, who is currently one of the most influential pop and trap artists in the game; DJ Mag’s #1
voted electronic artists, Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike; and representing the best in hip hop is DJ Khaled
and Schoolboy Q to round out the headlining roster.
Hip hop will be much more influential on this year’s installment of Freaky Deaky than in year’s past
with the inclusion of artists such as: Travis Scott, A$AP Ferg, Desiigner and Lil Dicky. All of these artists
are making major waves with Billboard Hot 100 hits and sold out shows across the country.
Back on the electronic side of things watch for some of the most influential names in electronica to
make their mark at this year’s festival. Fresh off a stellar performance at EDC Vegas this summer,
JAUZ is set to throw down along with bass and dubstep magician, Bro Safari. Bass lovers will enjoy the
dubstep stylings offered by Crizzly and Illenium, and trap fans will surely be entertained by the
critically acclaimed duo Loudpvk and 4B.
House music pioneer, Jamie James, will be joined by a wide range of artists representing the very best
of house, tropical house and deep house with the likes of Claptone, MK, Gryffin, Duke Dumont and
In addition to the usual assortment of drink and eat, Freaky Deaky promises to be a visual spectacle
with 3D animation, eye popping stage design, intense pyrotechnics and costumed performers for all
to fully immerse themselves in the Halloween celebration.
It seems pretty clear that with more and more festivals popping up all over the country, competition
for your festival dollar has intensified. It would also seem that Freak Deaky has pulled a rabbit out of
its hat this year and promises to provide a fest worthy of the freakiest of freaks.
