The Music Festival Wizard 50: October 2014

The October edition of the Music Festival Wizard is hot off the presses and only ten days late. We had a busy October but the data never stops coming. For those of you new to the MFW 50, this is our monthly semi-scientific rundown of the most popular festivals on this website.

Who’s the Scariest of Them All
No surprise that October saw the rise of Halloween festivals to the top of the list. Suwannee Hulaween (#16), Something Wicked (#12), and Voodoo (#9) all landed in the top 20 but top honors for Halloween go to the Hard Day of the Dead Festival (#6).

Go to More Festivals…
…is our New Year’s resolution. Looks it is yours as well with the top of the list owned by NYE. The New York City edition of Time Warp (#2) climbed 23 spots to nab second place while Snowglobe (#1) rolled from fifth place into first.

Movers and Shakers
The Savannah Music Festival (#20) worked its way up an incredible 90 spots this month. The new edition of Wanderlust in Austin (#6) twisted into a 33 point increase and the Treefort Music Festival (#43) made a run of 70 places.
