The famous Halloween event is set to take place once again in the end of October, the organizers say.
According to them, the decade and a half long tradition of the Skinful Halloween event will start on October 23 at Natural Gathering Grounds in Ridgeville.
The festival started as a one-night costume party on James Island more than 15 years ago and since then is becoming more and more popular every year.
As a result of the pandemic, last year the festival was scaled out to members-only private event in order Covid-19 regulations to take place.
The organizers announced that this year the festival will keep the same model as last year.
Everyone that is interested to became a member should purchase a ticket which also includes camping access.
“Instead of making it a massive public event, we instead shrunk it down and made it a more high-end experience for a small group,” said Dave “Big Hair” Brisacher, vocalist for festival headliner, Dubplates.
The organizers added that everyone who will buy a ticket and wants to attend the event should provide a proof of Covid-19 vaccination or negative PCR test.
The attendees can arrive Oct. 22 at 2 p.m. to set up camp and gates open Oct. 23 at 12 p.m. Furthermore, attendees are asked to bring camping supplies, food and drink with them.
“We are grateful to have an event like Skinful where it can be spread out and outdoors and safe and still get the energy of the crowd — you can’t get that over a Zoom meeting,” Brisacher said, who has been performing with Dubplates at Skinful since its inception.
Joining Dubplates are headliners synthwave group Doom Flamingo, experimental outfit Sexbruise?, Grateful Dead cover band The Reckoning and DJ Moldybrain.
Also on the bill this year are Runaway Bogan Gin, DJ Lyrickill, Duwayne Motley, DJ Skitch, Lost Tribe, Daddy Long Legs, Mighty Good Time, Sleepy Tyrants, Mighty Good Time, Weigh Station, Graham Whorley Charleston Super Jam and more.
