Minimal Effort to bring underground-style 21+ Halloween fest to Southern California

For the past three years, Minimal Effort has set out to change the environment of the Los Angeles, Calif. underground scene. From dark warehouses to historic venues in Downtown LA and now to a full-blown outdoor music festival, the crew behind Minimal Effort is gearing up for their biggest Halloween show yet on Oct. 29 at the LA Center Studios.

Set before LA’s iconic Downtown skyline, the festival brings a carefully curated lineup — touted as the most impressive to date — of house and techno across two stages. The one-day exposé will feature artists such as Pete Tong, Coyu, Jonas Rathsman, Kidnap Kid, Mark Farina, Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs (DJ Set), and more (see full lineup graphic below). Minimal Effort Halloween also marks the Los Angeles debut of Tiga Live.


Minimal Effort is an intimate affair with attendance capped at 5,000. Tickets for the 21-and-over event are on sale now starting at $80 plus fees, with both general admission (GA) and VIP options available. VIP amenities include express entry, a private backstage viewing area, private bar, and complimentary Minimal Effort merchandise.

Halloween weekend revelers traveling to the LA area can book their stay at The Westin Bonaventure Hotel & Suites with discount code: MINIMAL EFFORT. Find tickets and more info here.
