In its eighth year running, Freaky Deaky festival brought out a sold out crowd to Toyota Park in Bridgeview, IL. The Halloween Weekend affair is one of the biggest of its kind in the country, and easily the most popular in the Midwest. In the past, much like North Coast, its sister festival, the event drew a heavily EDM-influenced crowed and line-up. This year’s artists proved to be a change in the narrative, bringing a bevy of heavy-hitters.

 

DJ Khaled, Travi$ Scott, and Schoolboy Q headlined the event alongside a slew of electronic and hip-hop artists alike. Tiesto, DJ Snake, and Disclosure headlined the electronic side, as fans filed into the park. Costume-clad concert goers raged into the night through nonstop sets at ‘The Shrine,’ The Big Top,’ and ‘The Crypt’ stages. The park was filled with carnival-style attractions and food to keep attendees busy between performance.

 

A$AP Ferg, Metro Boomin, Flatbush Zombies, Lil Dicky, and ILOVEMAKONNEN rounded out the artists we caught this weekend. Check out the photoset above for an in-depth recap of the festival and make sure to check back for more exclusive RSVP Gallery content.

After a very live in-store event with Travis Scott, we made our way to the “Rodeo Tour’s” Chicago stop. Metro Boomin and OG Chase B kicked off the night with a joint DJ set, setting the tone for the sold-out show with everything from Kanye’s “All Day” to Crime Mob’s “Knuck if You Buck.” As soon as the two Southern rappers hit the neon-lit stage for a tag team performance the crowd went crazy and mosh pits ensued. The all ages show was cut short by curfew, but not before Travis Scott and Young Thug performed all of their hits. Relive the show with our footage from the event and if you forgot to make a stop at the merch booth, grab one of our limited edition collab RSVP x Travis Scott Rodeo tees.
