Time to start planning, Hulaween fans!
The festival has announced the dates for the 2019 event. On October 24th- 27th, Hula will be hosting attendees for 4 days of art, camping, and music.
Hula has been gaining popularity since its inception in 2013. From numbers reported in 2015, the number of tickets sold has steadily increased from 17,500 to a sold-out 2018 with roughly 20,000 attendees.
A few months back, the status of the festival for 2019 was uncertain. Silver Wrapper, the festival’s organizer, decided to end its 20-year run of putting on events. Other than Hula, their event roster included North Coast Music Festival and the popular Birdhouse Fest. The event company also partnered up with many venues in Chicago in order to bring more artists to the area.
Silver Wrapper is known for bringing live artists to their events. Past artists that have attended Hula include the legendary String Cheese Incident, Greensky Bluegrass, The Disco Biscuits, Umphrey’s McGee, and SunSquabi.
Lately, there has been no shortage of electronic music as well. GRiZ, Liquid Stranger, Rezz, and RL Grime.
There’s no doubt about it that this year’s lineup will bring the heat, regardless of the rumors that emerged this year.
