Halloween is almost here and on October 29 and 30th, the Houston Raceway in Baytown, Texas will host the most haunted festival of them all: Freaky Deaky TX. Hosted by Disco Donnie Presents, the music, set design, costumes, and camping grounds will provide attendees with an unforgettable mythical experience.
Freaky Deaky TX has more than 80 artists appearing across four different stages. The Shrine will include artists such as deadmau5, Excision, Zeds Dead, and more, while The Crypt will feature some of the grimiest bass artists possible like 12th Planet, ZIA, and even an Infected Mushroom DJ set! Meanwhile, The Haunted Hollow will feature artists across the house spectrum including Golf Clap, Green Velvet, Walker & Royce, and more. Finally, The Boneyard will bring all the techno possible with artists such as Paco Osuna, Layton Giordani, and many more.
As there will be a lot of sensory overload at Freaky Deaky TX, we guarantee that it will be easy to get lost. Because of this, we’ve compiled a list of five things you shouldn’t miss this weekend. Choose at your own risk!
1. Check Out The Freaky Town Campgrounds
Freaky Deaky TX is offering the first-ever overnight camping option, so attendees can really absorb themselves in the festival without having to travel far. There will be lots of fun camping activities at Freaky Town, the name of the campgrounds, as well as an exclusive camping pre-party, with one of the festival headliners, Adventure Club playing the pre-party set.
From morning yoga sessions to stretching your zombie legs to spooky silent discos, this pre-party is not to be missed. If the dance floor gets too much, you can take a break at the massage parlor and look freaky fresh every day. Have you missed your friends who didn’t make it to Freaky Deaky? You can also send a Freaky Deaky TX postcard to your friends and family by visiting their local post office.
