If Halloween + rave sounds like a good mix, enter the World of BOO! at WAMU Theater. There, feel the spirit of Darcy, an urban legend about a little girl who “disappeared into the forests around Lake Washington years ago,” or so the myth goes

Darcy and her big Halloween rave originate from Insomniac, the global electronic dance music event producer behind mega raves like Electric Daisy Carnival (Las Vegas, Mexico City, Suzhou) and Beyond Wonderland (The Gorge, Monterrey, San Bernadino). Halloween 2023 will be the third year in a row that BOO! lands in Pioneer Square, after starting in New York in 2014 and then expanding to SoCal, Arizona, and eventually the Pacific Northwest. Historically, the party tends to have plenty of art, photo ops, and shops for rave gear on site. (Make sure your costumes are boogie-worthy.) Last year, we described it as “like you’re stepping into a Tim Burton movie—just with a lot more glitter and lasers.”

This year, follow Darcy’s green-glowing eyes to three stages of supernatural sights and sounds. The Dark Forest is full of terrifying trees where you can twist to electrifying tunes. If you crawl down to the Den of Darkness, you’ll find a realm for those who crave heavier sounds like bass and dubstep. And at The Lighthouse, the promoters promise “a sanctuary for those seeking to surrender to the rhythm.”
