All You Need to Know for Charleston Skinful 2019
Known for throwing rowdy and colorful Halloween parties, Charleston Skinful is back at it following a six-year hiatus. The much-anticipated costume party is slated for October 26 at the Charleston Woodlands and features many prominent rappers and musicians, including former Beastie Boys’ DJ Mix Master Mike, Redman, Method Man, and a Charleston reggae favorite—The Dubplates.
This year’s event benefits Palmetto Community Care—formerly known as Lowcountry AIDS Services—and the Exotic Animal Rescue Sanctuary. The former offers housing, nutritional and emotional support to those living with the syndrome; the latter is dedicated to abused, neglected and abandoned wildlife with a focus on education and public awareness and the goal of eliminating all forms of animal abuse. Supporting two great causes is a rewarding bonus when purchasing your Skinful ticket.
Charleston Skinful 2019 has a pricing bracket similar to 2013’s, with rates that won’t empty your wallet. The Early Bird Deal—requiring purchase sometime before the gates open—is set at $60. Two upgraded packages are available, including a general admission price of $75 and VIP tickets slotted at $150. The Charleston City Paper is once again overseeing ticketing for the event.
You’re likely wondering what the VIP option is all about, aren’t you? It is all-inclusive and convenient with an invitation to a VIP Lounge/Bar situated near the main stage, early access to the event, and private restroom accessibility—well worth it to avoid the long lines.
Prime Space for Camping
An epic Halloween throw-down needs plenty of event space to meet expectations, and Charleston Woodlands is the perfect spot—hedged between Middleton Place and Middleton Stables on Ashley River Road. The venue’s grounds can accommodate a wide range of events and activities such as weddings, camping, public and private events, and other recreational activities.
For the Skinful event, added preparations for camping have been made on your behalf, which include three options—Car Camping on the North Lake for $125, fifteen minutes from the festival grounds (shuttle service is provided); a Premium Tent Camping ticket for $500, featuring an elevated tent with air mattresses and solar lights; and a $400 RV Camping package at the lakefront site, nested only five minutes from the main event.
Live Art and Dancing
Charleston Skinful is like a little box of sunshine—it’s what you need to blow off some steam while living the dream! You can literally dance the night away under a glistening disco ball, enjoying the good tunes and absorbing the positive vibes all around. Poles for dancing and a designated dance area are available for your enjoyment.
As an ode to Charleston’s creative community, live art will be on display for your viewing pleasure, capturing the creative essence of Lowcountry artists while adding extra pizazz to the event. There’s also no reason to worry about the cold weather as event planners will provide burn barrels for warmth, and campers will be able to start their own campfires when permitted.
Earlier editions of Charleston Skinful were headlined by big names like Flavor Flav (formerly of Public Enemy—Yeah, boyeee!) and the west-coast hip-hop icon Too $hort, with sideshow installments of burlesque dancing, circus shows, and much more. But this year’s edition is anticipated to be the best yet—loaded with everything from a mystical event atmosphere to an extended musical lineup.
Transportation can be an issue that affects the very heart of a party or gathering—for the safety of you and those you share the roads with.
