Halloween - Nightlife Calendar Series

Venue Management

Halloween [Calendar Series]

Tuesday October 31

Today’s Halloween celebrations are thought to have been influenced by Celtic and Christian customs as a way to remember the dead. The acceptance of Halloween as a celebration here in Australia continues to grow year on year – so much so that it’s now one of the most popular dates on the calendar.

In hospitality, you’ll be expecting a big crowd of people out for a rollicking night of fun. And if you’re a gym, bowling alley or cafe, your members and customers might be expecting a bit of theming for the day and in the lead up to any Halloween events you might be holding.

What better way to create the perfect Halloween atmosphere than with your screens and the music?

It’s all free and included in your Nightlife subscription!


We have a special Halloween playlist full of great hand-picked tracks that fit the theme and will be perfect in a wide variety of venues. Here’s a sample of what you can expect on our Halloween list: Missy Elliot’s ‘Get Your Freak On’, ‘Frontier Psychiatrist’ by The Avalanches, ‘Where’s Your Head At’ by Basement Jaxx, Taylor Swift’s ‘Look What You Made Me Do’, ‘Horror Movie’ by Skyhooks and ‘Highway To Hell’ by AC/DC, plus heaps more.

If you need a hand adjusting your Scheduler or would like to find out more, call us on 1800 773 468 for training and support.


If you have crowdDJ enabled on your Nightlife system, it’s like having an ace up your sleeve. You want to keep your crowd entertained, spending more money at your bar or in your dining area. What better way to do that than through letting them pick their favourite party songs?

You can read more about crowdDJ here and here. Give us a call if this is of interest to you!

Digital Advertising

We’ve put together some Halloween slides for you that can be scheduled to screen in your venue. We suggest starting to screen any advertising a few weeks in advance so your customers know you’re celebrating Halloween (not all Australian venues do) and that they can come back to celebrate with you. You can find the slides on the Manage My Nightlife web app under Advertising, or on your update disc if your system is not online.

Here’s a preview of our Advertising slides, perfect to show on October 31:

When you create your own advertising, you have full control over the message. You could promote; a best dressed competition for the night; advertise food and beverage deals; or welcome people to your event. Here’s a preview of our Text-Over-Image slides, which you can add your own text to using the Manage My Nightlife web app:

All forms of Digital Advertising can be set to show on your screens; on whichever days and hours you like; meaning there’s no need to be caught out showing messages for Halloween on November 1.

Not confident creating your own advertising or don’t know how to find it? Call us for training.

Halloween Ambient Visuals

We’ve put together a Halloween Ambient Visuals list of vintage horror film footage called HWEEN_TV. This includes heaps of fun snippets of monsters, cartoons and black and white clips; perfect to show during the night. If you need a hand scheduling this for your screens, just give us a call – we’re happy to help!


Scheduling your content means it’s one less thing to worry about on the day, leaving you free to fine-tune the rest of your spook-fest! As always we are happy to help you with your Nightlife system so you can make the most of this once a year event. Call us on 1800 773 468 to set your venue up for Halloween.
