Baytown’s about to Get Spooky with the Freaky Deaky Festival

Live music, dancing and camping on the dark side.

Baytown's Freaky Deaky Festival is back bigger and better this year. 

Spring and summer closed the books on a largely triumphant return to concerts and festivals post-pandemic, but as the temperatures prepare to drop as we enter the cooler months, those still searching for consecutive days packed with live music still have plenty to be excited for. Enter the Freaky Deaky EDM Festival. 

EDM (electronic dance music) combines musical genres such as electronic, techno, house, and dance, with music sped up to roughly 200-beats-per-minute. Freaky Deaky will take place the weekend of Hallow’s Eve (October 28-30), and the festival welcomes all “freaks from far and wide” for an eerie exploration of sounds, and the booming bass of EDM from the main stage will surely bring out the ghosts, goblins, and other spooky haunts. 

Freaky Deaky is produced by Disco Donnie Presents, and the EDM festival comes after other successful music presentations like Ubbi Dubbi and Sunset Music Festivals. This year will mark Freaky Deaky’s fourth installment of the festival in Texas and organizers are bringing back all four spooky stages: The Shrine, The Crypt, The Boneyard, and The Haunted Hollow. 

Hosted at Houston Raceway Park in Baytown, Freaky Deaky boasts an impressive lineup of heavyweights that will electrify all festival-goers. DJ AC Slater, Dirt Monkey, and Barnacle Boi are just a few names that top the bill in the high-octane music festival.

Billed as Halloween’s premier dance music event, the festival will span three full days. As if that’s not enough, the festival will include onsite campgrounds so attendees can dance all night without missing a beat. 

Freaky Deaky’s weekend of fun will also underscore their philanthropic efforts. Profits made from the festival will be donated to local nonprofit organizations. Last year, the outfit donated $150,000 worth of tickets to veterans, first responders, and Gold Star families. Freaky Deaky has also made donations to the Houston Food Bank and the Texas Association of First Responders. 

Festivities begin with early camping arrivals on Friday and festival gates opening on Saturday and Sunday this Halloween weekend. Tickets start at $95 and all attendees can choose from payment plans that fit their budget. 

The Freaky Deaky EDM Music festival is October 29-30 at Houston Raceway Park in Baytown, Texas. For more information and ticket packages, visit Freaky Deaky’s website.
