Last year’s inaugural Spring Awakening festival went off without a hitch. Headliners included Flux Pavillion, Skrillex, Moby, Afrojack, Benny Benassi and more, but the draw of the fest was the timing and location.
The festival returns for its second year to Chicago’s Soldier Field this June 14-16. React Presents, the folks behind the EDM fest, have released the entire jam-packed lineup (see above.) Ticketholders will get to dance on Soldier Field — home of the Chicago Bears — and by two other adjacent stages outside the football field to the sounds of Bassnectar, Calvin Harris, Moby, Boyz Noise, the Crystal Method, Chuckie, DJ Blend, Paul Oakenfold, Porter Robinson, ATB, Zedd, Zed’s Dead, plus locals Krewella and Flosstradamus. The list goes on.
This year Chicago is turning into EDM central. In addition to Spring Awakening, Chitown, which hosts Lollapalooza annually in August, will see both the DJ-heavy fests Wavefront and Electric Daisy Carnival descend upon the Windy City, in July and May respectively.
