1. The String Cheese Incident - This suggestion should go without saying, however we want to make it clear that if you don’t catch a set by the String Cheese Incident , or two, then you have not truly attended Suwannee Hulaween. After all, it is their festival! If for some reason you only make it to one set during the festival, it is highly suggested to catch the themed set for the weekend. The String Cheese Incident will play seven sets throughout the four day festival, with one of the sets on Saturday tying into the festival’s theme for the year. This year’s theme is “Creatures of the Galaxy”, which has attendees on the edge of their seats for possible cover songs that Cheese has in store for us.

2. Jamiroquai - The one and only Space Cowboy has returned from a long hiatus of touring the United States and will be making a very special South-Eastern appearance at Suwannee Hulaween. Before their performance at Coachella earlier this year, it had been over a decade since Jamiroquai had made an appearance in the states. The band pioneered the electro-funk sound as they rose out of the acid-jazz era in Britain. They truly set the stage for many jam-funk bands that conquer the festival circuit today, so to see them making a long-awaited return to the festival circuit has many die hard fans coming out of the wood work to see his limited number of performances here in the United States. The vibes will be nothing short of groovy when Jay Kay conquers the main stage in the Meadow at Hulaween 2018.
