For the past five years Chicago has been lucky enough to kick off the summer right with some of the biggest names in electronic music and 2017 is no different. React Presents is back with their announcement of phase one of the Spring Awakening Music Festival lineup! Returning to its new home at Addams/Medill Park this coming June 9th through June 11th Spring Awakening is sure to set the tone for everyone’s summer to be one to remember.


Over the course of three days attendee’s will be able to enjoy the music of more than 80 electronic music artists that cover an enormous range of genre’s on two different main stages and six smaller branded stages! The Solstice stage will be home to some of the biggest and best performances that weekend with the likes of Armin Van Buuren, Axwell ^ Ingrosso, Diplo, Alesso, and Marshmello gracing the stage; along with a few others as well. On the Equinox stage will get a taste of something that’s a little more heavy with Datsik and Excision taking over and they’ll be joined with other artists like Galantis, Die Antwoord, Louis the Child and more!

The branded stages have always offered a unique spin to curated stage lineup’s at Spring Awakening. It’s a chance for fans of a certain genre or style to really dive into it all day and night. This year we will see the return of the famed Bass Kitchen stage along with Body Language, which showcases the house-y vibes that Chicago is known for, and the Trance Arena. A little something new is happening this year as well; we will get to see stage takeovers from three distinctive brands within the electronic music industry. Attendee’s will get their fill of curated lineup’s from Sunday School, which will feature both big and underground names, Anjunadeep, Above & Beyond’s deep house take on their famed record label, and Dancing Astronaut, the well acclaimed music publication!

Over the next few weeks as June begins to draw closer attendee’s will be able to keep their excitement going as they look for phase 2 to be released along with the reveal of all of the branded stage artists! In the mean time however, check out the wonderful playlist that was put together for the phase one artists, the full lineup flyer and recap video!

Tickets are available to purchase via their website now and payment plans are an option so their is no excuse as to why we won’t be seeing you in June!
