Freaky Deaky 2017 – Milwaukee

Freaky Deaky 2017 – Milwaukee

This year’s Freaky Deaky run at the Wisconsin Center in Milwaukee was filled with eclectic vibes and wild souls. Presenting a solid lineup featuring Opiuo, Boogie T., Flatbush Zombies, and GRiZ on Night 1, along with Artifakts, Bleep Bloop, Mija, Ganja White Night, and Bassnectar on Night 2; the weekend’s performances were highly anticipated. Even though Doors only opened at 8pm, those arriving by 9pm were succumbed to standing in a line that wrapped around the building both nights. Thankfully, the line was moving steadily and we were able to get into the building within about 40 minutes.

Upon entering the Warehouse-style venue, brilliant displays of visuals were beaming from the screens ahead. To my surprise, there was plenty of space up close to the stage on the right and left sides during both nights, which was definitely a benefit for people like myself who like to have some space to dance while watching the show. It was also cool to be able to grab some fries and a drink from the vendors fairly quickly since lines inside were moving smoothly.

Boogie T. and GRiZ threw down remarkable performances Night 1. Both were filled with tremendous energy as they danced around goofily on stage; it was really a great time seeing them have fun with us all! Close to the end of his set, GRiZ premiered a collaboration he worked on with Boogie T. earlier that day which was AWESOME. I seriously can’t wait for this track to be officially released. Until then, check out this short clip we were able to snag:

Saturday soon creeped up on us and so did of the freaky festivities of Night 2. Even though the show was sold out, the venue never really felt too overcrowded or packed in. That was a major plus and I give credit to the organizers for setting up the event this way.

We’ve had the privilege of covering Ganja White Night multiple times this year and honestly, Freaky Deaky was their best set yet. They even premiered a collaboration they recently worked on with Caspa (video below):

I guess the boys wanted to give Milwaukee a special treat for their first Halloween celebration in the States. Bassnectar unveiled an unordinary set and I was a bit surprised that he didn’t play much of his newest music.

All in all, both nights of Freaky Deaky featured splendid light and visual production along with some kick ass performances by talented artists. Although the sound quality was good, unfortunately it was a bit distorted because of the warehouse-type venue. However, this really didn’t hinder the overall experience of the event.
