Umphrey's McGee replaces Joe Russo's Almost Dead as Hulaween headliner

Posted By on Fri, Oct 22, 2021 at 11:34 AM

Hulaween is fast approaching
and Florida's jam band-loving folks are gearing up to descend on Live Oak for three nights of noodling and bass drops. Unfortunately for some, the band Joe Russo's Almost Dead won't be there.

The act was forced to drop their headlining slot due to "unforeseen circumstances" with Umphrey's McGee stepping in to fill the void. Fortunately, there isn't a single person on Earth who is a fan of just one jam band. So it's likely that the audience who are there for String Cheese Incident and JRAD will be plenty happy with this new development.

Hulaween is the eighth run-through of the fest at Spirit of Suwannee Music Park and the sold-out event will run from Thursday, October 28 to Halloween. Other notables playing the fest include Skrillex, My Morning Jacket, Leon Bridges and Khruangbin.
