Various artists from around the Midwest will collaborate with Double Trouble Entertainment to deliver the fourth Raveyard event to Marquette on Friday at the Masonic building.

At Raveyard, 13 artists will perform in both the Green and Red rooms for the Marquette community. This year, Double Trouble is boasting two stages instead of the usual one, as well as an updated sound and a new lighting system.

Jacob Stipe is a senior theatre major who has been affiliated with Double Trouble for the past four years. He said he is most excited for everyone to come together and show off their skills.

“Everything from Pop music all the way to super futuristic experimental music, It’s a large variety,” Stipe said.” This is the largest Electronica show in the U.P.”

Stipe added, “A lot of community members come together to make sure this event happens so we just try to make it as unique and as fun as possible.”

Most of the musical experience will take place in the Red Room starting at 9 p.m. The Green Room is reserved for contests and special announcements about opportunities and contests to join, and will open at an earlier time of 8 p.m.

“Raveyard” is a Halloween event that has taken place for the past four years in the Marquette community.

“I’m most excited just for everyone to experience it. There’s been a lot of hype and excitement about this work— this whole new set up that we’ve got going on,” Stipe said.

A costume contest will be held during the event. Double Trouble will present the winner with a three-night and two-day trip, not including airfare, to one of 20 locations.

“I think for this event, everybody coming together with the music just creates a really fun dynamic. There’s nothing like this in the U.P.,” Stipe said.

Tickets for Raveyard cost $10 at the door with a valid picture I.D. Guests must be 18 or older to enter the event, which will be held on back-to-back dates from 8 p.m. to 4 a.m. starting on Oct. 27.
