What The SAMF?

The hardest part about having a stacked lineup is finding a way to divvy up the headliners, support, and set times evenly so that everyone will be happy…

..HA! Like that will ever happen. Remember y’all, you can never make everyone happy.

Spring Awakening announced their single day lineup this morning, and I gotta say they did their best. Designating huge names like Griz, Rezz, Zedd, Zomboy, Illineum, Galantis, DJ Snake (the list goes on and on) to one day isn’t an easy task.

Let’s take a peak at the single day lineup so far:

Friday: House Party

Friday’s forecast is looking like a house party! Infamous artists like Zedd, Oliver Heldens, Galantis, Shiba San, Golf Clap, and more will be playing on this day.

While still dominantly house, there is still something for those who prefer a different cup of tea. You can also catch Zomboy, Illineum, Virtual Riot, Space Jesus, and more.

Also, keep in mind your favorite set might be at the Silent Disco!

Saturday: Bass Heads Unite!

Saturday is definitely looking like the heaviest of the 3 days. Boasting big names like Rezz, Dion Timmer, Blunts & Blondes, Subtronics, Liquid Stranger, and Spag Heddy; this day will definitely leave you in a neck brace.

Again they included a variety of names. Two Friends, Malaa, What So Not, and Dreole are just some of the artists playing on Saturday that are sure to go just as nuts as bass heads.

Sunday: Perfect Balance

Tying up the festival with a perfect balance is something that SAMF really nailed this year. Interweaving sets of house, glitchop, funk, riddim, dubstep, and trap on the last day, there’s bound to be something for everyone.

My suggestion is that if you’re going to go for one day; go to this day. You get a little bit of everything, and festival finales are always the best!

On top of a new lineup, the festival will also be debuting their 3rd location change this year. SAMF’s previous homes have been Soldier Field and Addams-Medill Park, but decisions were made to move the festival out of downtown, to suburban venue Poplar Creek.

This new location is spread over 27 acres of land, which is almost double of Addams-Medill Park. Expect bigger and better stages, production, and experiences. There will be complimentary shuttles going from nearby hotels, and for the first time, PARKING ON FESTIVAL GROUNDS!


Tickets are still on tier one, but are flying fast for around $215. Don’t miss out, click on the link here to secure your tix!


See you there beauties!

All the love,
