Around October 31st every year, people around the world dress up to celebrate one event: Halloween. This year, dance music has seen a large increase in interest, leading to entire music festivals to celebrate the event. Here are some of our favorite costumes from Halloween 2016, all worn by your favorite DJs!
A-trak: Juicero @ Something Wicked
As anyone who follows A-trak knows, the legendary DJ LOVES his Juicero. A collaborative effort with the juice company themselves, A-trak put on one of the more unique costumes of this year.
Diplo: Bee @ Something Wicked
Diplo as a bee is nothing too special. However, the fact that he took this photo in a Lamborghini IS special.
Oliver Heldens: 90’s Gabber Raver @ HiLoWeen
After sharing with the world his influences, the birthplace of gabber and hardstyle (allegedly, his hometown Rotterdam), some old-school Tiësto, himself dancing in the form of jumpstyle, and even mentioning his move from Rotterdam to Amsterdam on Snapchat, Oliver Heldens hosted his own Halloween party under the Hi-Lo moniker in Brooklyn dressed as a “90s Gabber Raver.”

Shaun Frank/Delaney Jane: Leto’s Joker and Harley Quinn @ Something Wicked
Dance music’s most dynamic producer/vocalist duo decided to dress as a classic pair that took the world by storm this year – DC Comic’s Joker and Harley Quinn. With Shaun Frank deciding to go as the new iteration of the Joker appearing in this year’s “Suicide Squad,” Delaney Jane decided to blur the lines between a new-school and old-school Harley Quinn.
Zedd: Daft Punk @ Casamigos Halloween Party
Winning the award for most authentic costume this Halloween is Zedd, with his amazing take on everyone’s favorite robots – Daft Punk.
Marshmello: Power Ranger @ Something Wicked/Wicked Halloween

No stranger to dressing up and DJing, the recently turned 40-year-old DJ played on his own, now legendary, party/stage, and went as an anime classic: Goku from Dragonball Z.

As previously reported upon, Martin Garrix went as a wizard for Halloween – an awesome and nostalgic look back at one of the tracks that brought him to prominence!
DJ Snake: Malaa @ FreakyDeaky
Quite possibly the most interesting costume this year, DJ Snake opted to start off his show with a nod to his good friend, Malaa, whose identity is still yet to be known!
