Summer time Chi has to be one of mine, and pretty much everyone else’s, favorite time in the city. There is something about the energy that it gives off with its gorgeous weather, sprawling beaches, and endless amounts of fun to be had everywhere you look.


And what better way to really kick off this time than to dance the night (and day) away to some of your favorite music? React Presents is back for the sixth time with their official announcement of Spring Awakening Music Festival 2017! Coming back to the city the weekend of June 9th – 11th we are ready to get back to the fields of its new location, as of last year, at Addams/Medill Park. Last year the change in location from Solider Field, a place that people felt was a home away from home when they would attend the fest, gave way to a lot of hesitation from attendee’s but React Presents showed that its not always the location that makes a festival so memorable but instead it’s the atmosphere and vibe that it creates. From the Vita Coco water slide to the Silent Disco set up in a repurposed bumper car arena we are ecstatic to see how the park gets transformed this year.

Pre-sale tickets and a layaway payment plan are now currently available for fans to snag their tickets at the lowest price they can! And if I have any say in it I suggest you do it now because you know React is going to provide you with a great lineup! Last years boasted names such as Deadmau5, Above & Beyond, The Chainsmokers, Jamie XX, Dada Life, Crystal Castles, Flying Lotus, and so many more! You can go ahead and purchase tickets from the Spring Awakening website; only $43 down (that’s including fee’s) with the layaway plan!

Relive the experience of 2016 below with the release of their official after movie! And in the mean time… Buy tickets, start taking off work, get excited. Spring Awakening is here and we are going to have a blast.
