As the sun set over Denver on October 26th the piercing sense of Halloween spirit was in the air. With Halloween only a few days away, festivities were underway across the state of Colorado. Denver music fanatics embraced the holiday spirit. Ready to experience Supernatural Festival 2019, all the ghosts and ghouls, witches and warlocks, and every creature in between descended upon the National Western Complex. The spookiest night of the year for the Denver EDM community had finally arrived.

Doors to the event opened at 7pm as all the eager Halloween ravers started to arrive. Upon entering, you were greeted by the infamous Iron Throne from the hit HBO series, Game of Thrones. With menacing dragons on either side, party goers lined up to have their pictures taken and prove that they were worthy to sit upon the life-sized throne. The throne, of course, was a nod to Game Of Thrones actor and “Rave of Thrones” DJ, Kristian Nairn, who took the Supernatural Arena later that night.

A Haunting Arena

Walking around the event you were sure to find something frightening lurking in the shadows and something excitingly spine-chilling around every corner. From the arena ceiling hung giant chains with menacing gargoyles on either side of the stage. Over at the Spider Cave, a flurry of spider webs stretched above your head. Some devilishly stylish dancers graced the stage to dance the night away upstairs in the Dreamspace room. And sheer terror was brought to the bass stage. The heavy bass music itself was enough to leave even the most experienced headbangers with chills up their spines! Both the Spider Cave and Afterlife Pass stages were handmade. In fact, they were run by a few of Denver’s best local DJs and stage designers, including everything from the LED boards to the speakers. Every stage appropriately embracing the Halloween theme.

Superstar Production

Kicking things off in the Supernatural Arena was a b2b featuring Denver locals Trajikk and EKG. Following them was a performance from masked Monstercat artist CloudNone who brought the chill vibes and helped mellow the crowd. Thus, setting the stage for one of the biggest and most highly anticipated sets of the night from none other than Porter Robinson. Due to scheduling conflicts Porter had an earlier than expected time slot at 8:45. However, the stage production was ramped up to full blast and the EDM superstar got the appropriately over-the-top production that any superstar DJ deserves. He even threw a few unexpected twists at the audience dropping both Drum N’ Bass and Psytrance into the mix. A style that isn’t typical for the award winning DJ, however a welcomed surprise that fed the energy and ravaged the minds of the crowd.

Superbass Hall

The chilly October night was heating up over in the Superbass Hall with performances by Bandlez, and Dodge & Fuski. The stage began to fill up quickly in anticipation for Megalodon, as well as one of bass music’s youngest and fastest rising stars, Dion Timmer. What came next was a b2b from Dubstep royalty Barely Alive and Virtual Riot. The heavy-hitting back to back set sent our minds into another dimension with bloodcurdling beats to close out the stage for the night.

Meanwhile, at the Dreamspace stage, the Denver Trance Family was dancing their hearts out to the sounds of The Thrillseekers, and Roger Shah. Closing out the stage was Dutch trance sensation RAM who brought the uplifting vibes we all needed. Being sure to hit us with some classic hits like ‘RAMsterdam’ and ‘RAMazing’.

The Final Hours

Back in the Supernatural Arena following Kristian Nairn, fans gathered for a performance by Dharma Worldwide label founder, KSHMR. He kept the party going with his usual blend of Electro House, Big Room, and Psytrance. As KSHMR finished, the Panda Funk squad assembled for a headlining set from the Panda king himself, Deorro. With lights, lasers, and CO2 cannons in overdrive Deorro kept the arena bouncing for the final hour of the night.

As the night came to an end, all the creatures of the night began wandering off to the places from which they came. Overall the hauntingly electric night was a doubtless success. Another one in the bag for the team at Global Dance and enough spine-chilling memories to last until next years spooky season. It’s been said that this year’s rendition of the festival was the biggest to date. And as the event continues to grow and evolve we eagerly await seeing what lies ahead for Supernatural Festival.
