After a generous amount of patience from the midwest EDM fanbase, React Presents has finally revealed its long awaited lineup and new location — Addams/Medill Park — for it’s fifth installation of Chicago’s biggest EDM event of the year: Spring Awakening Music Festival.
The well-respected promotion company experienced quite a bit of backlash three weeks ago, when a representative of the previously promoted new location, Jackson Park, released a statement claiming that React was selling tickets without having obtained a proper Park District permit. With less than 50 days until the weekend of the fest and no location and lineup, SAMF’s devoted fans and ticket holders were starting to really worry.
However, today at 12:00PM CST, React Presents released the first official image of the full Spring Awakening lineup. The festival, which will remain on the weekend of June 10-12, will be separated into a stage for DJs and a stage for live electronic performers, as well as a series of branded stages. The headliners this year consist of Above & Beyond, Carnage, Crystal Castles, Dada Life, deadmau5, Flux Pavilion, Nicky Romero, and Steve Aoki. Some more to name are Borgore, the Chainsmokers, Dillon Francis, Flying Lotus, Gramatik, Jamie xx, RL Grime, and Zeds Dead. Even the under-cards, ranging from Cash Cash to Hippie Sabotage to Datsik, include strong, cult-followed and veteran electronic artists that Chicago is glad to welcome back for the start of the summer. The lineup was well worth this year’s wait and is absolutely jaw-dropping from top to bottom.The official released image of the lineup can be seen below.
As first introduced last year, Spring Awakening is keeping to its 18+ age restriction. General admission 3-day wristbands are currently available for the general price of $189 USD plus fees, and VIP wristbands are still available for the pre-sale price of $299. They are available for purchase here.
