 Get ready to experience a Feartastic Halloween this year! Palm Springs will begin their annual Feartastic three day Horror Film Festival on Thursday, October 31st.

      To kick off the festival, BB Ingle is hosting the Monster Rock Halloween party at the Hard Rock hotel, Palm Springs, on Halloween night. According to Ingle, the event will be held on three floors of the hotel, with five venues of entertainment. The floors will be filled with DJs, bands, and live stage shows.

       A few of the DJs that have already been announced are: Ray Phillips, James Gonzales, Aaron C, Ceasare, JF//Discord, Jeff Ferguson, and Nate Campbell. 

       “This year’s Bash promises to be even more outrageous and entertaining than last year’s party which had over 5,000 in attendance and was again nominated for ‘Event of the Year’ in the Desert Sun’s ‘Best of the Valley’ awards!” says Ingle, on the Facebook page for the event.

         Food and drink vendors will be available all throughout the hotel. The Monster Rock Halloween party is 21+ and tickets must be purchased ahead of time. Anyone of age is invited to come celebrate. Don’t forget your costume!
