After thrilling even their most stalwart supporters with the announcement of FATBOY SLIM and MOBY, LoveBoat Halloween today announced the addition of more than 75+ additional performers and creators. Celebrating it’s 10th Anniversary in grand style, the Bay Area’s most elaborate Halloween spectacle is applying ‘bucket list’ mentality to its final year at San Francisco’s Pier 70. Joining the already world-class lineup are a bevy of rising phenoms including California midtempo stalwart THE POLISH AMBASSADOR, Berlin’s incredible PURPLE DISCO MACHINE, DC breakbeat heroes FORT KNOX FIVE feat. QDUP and ALL GOOD FUNK ALLIANCE, and SoCal glitch-hop duo 2TIGHT. Even America’s most renowned contemporary classical music composer, grammy nominated MASON BATES will be in the mix, stepping out of the concert hall to DJ the patented tech house that made him a surprising fixture of the Chicago warehouse scene.
And that’s just the headline music acts, the highlights continue with world-class production artists, stage performers, and a cross section of the Bay Area’s eclectic DJ scene. Joining the fray as the event’s new art director in 2017 is none other than MAD DOG MADIGAN (Edwardian Ball, Vau De Vire Society). Renowned Zoetrope artist PETER HUDSON returns with his breathtaking CHARON piece. THE DRIFT CREW is back with their patented driftwood structures. THE HOUSE of MORE will again produce two nights of drag shows featuring the city’s most outrageous queens, followed by the BOOTIE MASHUP DJs (ADRIAN A, MYSTERIOUS D and DJ TYME) on Friday and BLACK MAMMOTH (featuring the Pink Mammoth DJs DEREK HENA, GRAVITY and TOBIN ELLSWORTH) on Saturday. For the first time ever at LoveBoat the event will feature an all-female DJ lineup on the Drift Stage, featuring DJ UMAMI, DJ ICON, DJ CELESTE LEAR, KIMBA, NON SEQUITUR, DULCE VITA and JESSICA STANELL.
