As the cold weather starts to creep in and we all start suffering from ‘Post-festival’ depression as we look at the calendar and say “HOW LONG UNTIL THE NEXT MUSIC FESTIVAL?” React Presents steps in with a band-aid to the problem. Since 2008 they have hosted a Halloween dance extravaganza known as ‘Freaky Deaky’ that has brought in artists such as Chromeo, MSTRKFT and Knife Party.
In 2012 it was expanded to a two night event, and it started to feel more like a mini music festival rather than two concerts. This year is no different. Keep an eye out on Run The Trap for your chance to win tickets to either night of Freaky Deaky 😉
