Miami's best Halloween parties 2017
Basement planned a full weekend of Halloween fun. On Friday, Jillionaire, one-third of Major Lazer, spins alongside Iron Lyon. While Saturday sees hip-hop royalty and Wu-Tang alumnus RZA perform with Tony Touch. Plus: $10 orange and black Halloween slushies all night long. Things will get weird.
Local alt-rock station 104.3 The Shark throws a mini Halloween music festival in Coconut Grove. Welshly Arms, the Heris and Walk the Moon are on the lineup, rocking out and getting the Grove ready for Halloween. Take a stroll through the scary corn maze and grab a drink at the beer garden between sets.
Ball & Chain’s usual tropical Latin vibes will be replaced by utter spookiness during their Monster Ball. Halloween-themed live music will take place at 8pm and 9pm. There is no cover (as is always the case at Ball & Chain) and costumes are strongly encouraged.
The new Wynwood brewery celebrates its very first Halloween with a party and costume contest. Catch local favorites Locos perform and sample the brewery’s new seasonal beer, debuts at the event. Win the costume contest and buy your friends a round with your shiny new $100 bar tab prize.
Inspired by the cult classic film of the same name, the Faena Horror Picture show is going to be a celebration of all things kinky. Hosted by Miami drag goddess Adora, the party takes place in the Faena’s Living Room, a chic space inside the hotel filled with plush animal print couches and an elegant chandelier—the perfect environment for such a soiree. After some dancing and cocktails, stay for a screening of The Rocky Horror Picture Show.
Thousands are expected to attend this Wynwood Halloween block party taking place on Halloween night. With over 15 bars, 20 food trucks, DJs and a local artisan market—there will be no shortage of things to do during this sensory overload of a party. The costume-watching should be prime and don’t even think about driving—parking will be the scariest thing about the night.
On the weekend before Halloween, Wynwood will be pulsing with the sounds of DJ Snake, Porter Robinson, Wiz Khalifa, Steve Angello and more when the two-day music festival Wynwood Fear Factory takes over the fittingly spooky abandoned RC Cola Plant. Costumes are encouraged for this haunted concert, which you must be at least 18 years old to attend.
It’s a weekend full of ‘70s-era fun at Sweet Liberty. Local rockabilly favorites Patrick & the Swayzees kick off a disco-themed night on Friday. On Saturday, DJ Mister Grey spins classics and if you’ve still got it in you on Sunday, brunch brings its usual dose of good times for the brave souls still standing.
