Hell’s Gala, One of NOLA’s Biggest Halloween Parties, Returns This Week [Giveaway]

hells gala

Halloween is one of the most exciting and jam-packed weekends in New Orleans. Hell’s Gala is just one of the the unmissable Halloweekend events.

This year, Encore Entertainment and Winter Circle Productions have moved the party from Mardi Gras World and in to the central business district at the Orpheum Theater.  

With previous lineups boasting big names like Excision, Steve Aoki and Chris Lake, the bar was set pretty high for the annual spooky shindig. 

This year’s headliners are Slander and Jai Wolf.

Self-proclaimed “heaven trap,” the duo that makes up Slander has earned the support of major artists like Skrillex, Bassnectar, and Diplo. Since their first release in 2015, they’ve developed a devoted following and have toured across some of the biggest festival stages in the world. Their blend of melodic, highly synthetic singles and crunchy drops will surely make it a special performance. 


Jai Wolf’s performance might turn out to be unexpected for some fans. He gained hundreds of million of streams for his dance anthems “Indian Summer” and “Starlight.” But his debut album sounds a bit different. The Cure to Loneliness took him more than two years to finish, and parts of the album feel a lot more indie pop and less future bass. We’re excited to see what his live performance shapes up to be. 


Bonnie X Clyde and P-TAB round out the musical bill for the evening. The after-Voodoo show takes over the Orpheum on Saturday, October 26. Doors open at 10 pm. Get tickets to Hell’s Gala here.
