But wait, there's more...

1. Your costume

Ah yes, the big question. What to wear, what to wear? Do you take the simple and comfortable route? Big and elaborate? Minimalist (that means sexy)? The impeccably planned group costume? Or if anything else you can always just come dressed as Harambe. You know you won't be the only one.

2. The layout map

Okay, I know it's just a map, but bare with me. As we've previously touched on, Freaknight 2015 had some pretty serious sound and logistic issues in their first year at the Tacoma Dome. Single stage shows like Above & Beyond's "We Are All We Need" and Bass Academy were fine, but the sound bleed last Halloween was enough to get Deadmau5 himself to comment on it. [caption id="attachment_38704" align="aligncenter" width="695"]"Yeah I'm kind of under that spikey balloon..." "Yeah I'm kind of under that spikey balloon..."[/caption] Lucky earlier in March was an absolutely improvement, and this year allegedly features an all new design and layout; maximizing the space, taking advantage of the acoustics, and making sure every last one of those kinks has been worked out. BONUS THING TO GET EXCITED ABOUT: Single day tickets for both Friday and Saturday are available! USC knows that committing to go both days can be hard, and so they are making it easier for everyone to go! Check out the day by day lineup here and figure out which day works best for you.

3. Your accommodations

You figure out your driving plans yet? What about hotels/Airbnb? Remember, USC has your back if you don't feel like driving all the way back to Seattle. Seriously, don't drive under the influence. For those of you not interested in managing your own transportation or paying $100+ for an Uber, USC has brought back the shuttle service. Downtown Seattle right to the venue, for just $70 a person. That ends up being $17 each way for the whole weekend. Not a bad deal. Get your shuttle passes right here! USC has also partnered with some hotels to make sure you actually have a place to sleep. If you haven't booked already, book now. Rooms will fill up. Getting home is just as important as the event itself. However you do it, wherever you do it, make sure that you do it safely.

4. Free Tickets

You know we got them. Head on over to our Facebook and share the original post to be entered to win VIP passes for the whole weekend.
Tomorrow is October, meaning that Freaknight happens in less than a month. Get ready by jamming out to our Spotify playlist, now updated to include the rest of the killer lineup.
