Halloween EDM Event Guide 2012

It’s our favorite time of year. There’s a chill in the air, the trees are turning beautiful shades of color and it’s acceptable to scare the living daylights out of your friends at any given moment.

That’s right, Halloween is upon us. And what better way to celebrate the gorish holiday than by tearing up the dance floor with your fellow walking dead?

We’ve got you covered this season with our comprehensive guide to Halloween EDM events focusing on cities in our coverage area and popular travel destinations too. We’re adding events daily so be sure to check back throughout the month.
