Viewer beware, you’re in for a scare!
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 (Thursday October 31) as a celebration here in Australia continues to grow year on year and it’s now one of the most popular dates on the calendar!
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!
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 putting this on your screens, just give us a call – we’re happy to help!
What’s that? A special Halloween playlist full of great hand-picked tracks? Yes, it’s called SPOOKY; 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.
crowdDJ Halloween party
You want to keep your crowd entertained, spending more money at your bar or having a dance-off to ‘Thriller’; what better way to do that than through letting them pick their favourite freaky party songs through crowdDJ?
We’ve put together some Halloween slides for you that can be scheduled to display 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.
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
- advertise food and beverage deals
- welcome people to your event
Here’s a preview of our Text-Over-Image slides, to which you can add your own text 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; there’s no need to be caught out showing messages for Halloween on November 1.
Not confident about creating your own advertising or don’t know how to find it? Call us for training.
And as a final gift, here’s a fun Halloween playlist we’ve created for you on Spotify, which you can load for your venue through Manage My Nightlife:
Scheduling your content in advance 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.
