Freaky Deaky evolves from festival to multi-city tour for Halloween 2017

Freaky Deaky will return as a multi-day event in multiple cities this Halloween, after being held as a standalone Chicago festival in recent years.

In Milwaukee, the Wisconsin Center will host two nights of events on Oct. 27 and 28. Artists include Griz, Bassnectar, Flatbush Zombies, Mija, Bleep Bloop, Artifakts, and Boogie T.

Chicago’s Concord Music Hall will host Kayzo on Oct. 26 and Gorgon City with Lee Foss and Kidnap Kid on Oct. 27. Aragon Ballroom will welcome Oliver Heldens, Kligande, and Orezo on Oct. 27, and Dillon Francis, What So Not, and Parker on Oct. 28.

In Michigan, Zomboy will perform on Oct. 27 at the Intersection in Grand Rapids. Ann Arbor fans will enjoy Cash Cash at Necto on Halloween night, Oct. 31.
