With festival season almost in full swing, we want to put the spotlight on what has quickly become one of the top festivals in the country, Chicago’s own Spring Awakening Music Festival. As always, with the plethora of DJs that are booked for these events it can be hard to choose who to see. That is exactly why I always try and make your decision easier. Before reading this list and saying “Oh you forgot this guy.” Think again, I didn’t forget anyone, I have the lineup right in front of me as I write this. In addition to the list, we have teamed up with Spring Awakening to bring you the chance to win FREE tickets to the festival. Without further ado, lets get this list rolling and don’t forget to enter the giveaway below.

10. Louis The Child

With big release after big release, Chicago’s very own high school prodigies are back at Soldier Field this year, bringing you that dirty French house music.  You can add Louis The Child to your very own custom schedule HERE.

9. Moon Boots

This dude has been all over the festival lineup circuit this year. In June he will be making his way to Spring Awakening, bringing his signature sound that makes you want to do nothing other than dance. Add Moon Boots to your schedule HERE.


8. Win & Woo

Another Chicago duo that has taken over the blogosphere is Win & Woo. If you ask anyone who has seen them preform live before what genre they play, there would be no answer. These two have the ability to throw down festival sets in the smallest clubs and have everyone dancing. Add Win & Woo to your schedule HERE.

7. Gregori Klosman

After the success of his latest release Where’s My Money, the Frenchman is looking to bring the funk to SAMF. With his incredibly bouncy house music on the Dirty Dutch V Buygore stage, this is not a set to miss. Add Gregori Klosman to your schedule HERE.


6. Dillon Francis

After massive performances at Ultra and Coachella, Dillon comes to Chicago looking to give us more. With Spring Awakening less than a month before Dillon Francis’ release of his album, you can be sure that you will hear some exclusive tunes in his set. Add Dillon Francis to your schedule HERE.

5. Laidback Luke

With his incredible production and live DJ skills, Laidback Luke has been a name not to miss for years. If his latest release is any insight into what his set will look like, you can look forward to an incredibly euphoric bouncy set. Add Laidback Luke to your schedule HERE.

4. Knife Party

Oh how everyone cannot wait for their album to come out. Odds are when they take the stage Friday of Spring Awakening they will debut some of their new stuff, making this a cannot miss set at Soldier Field. Add Knife Party to your schedule HERE.

3. Milk N Cookies

After an absolutely monster 2013, Chicago’s very own twins are ready for festival season. With big releases like Bring Da Funk back and their Juicy remix, you can be sure you will hear new tunes. Add Milk N Cookies to your schedule HERE.

2. Big Gigantic

Dom and Jeremy have taken live performances to a completely different level. Come June Big Gigantic will be ready to completely blow people away with their live saxophone and drums. Add Big Gigantic to your schedule HERE.

1. Diplo

The ring-leader of twerk makes his way to Soldier Field this summer after two massive performances at Ultra (one as himself, one as Jack U). There is no doubt in my mind that he will turn the entire festival into a giant party on Saturday. Add Diplo to your schedule HERE.
