Spring Awakening 2018 has one of the most stacked lineups of the entire year, if not ever. But the real party gets started after the music festival shuts down.

Borgore is sure to throw down a crazy set Thursday night, and as the only official Spring Awakening pre-party it’s sure to sell out early. Throughout the weekend, many artists are set to take over the official after spots including Tchami & Mercer, Zeds Dead, Tiesto, NGHTMRE, Hardwell, deadmau5, Kaskade — we could go on, but just know they’re all fire.

Unsurprisingly, a few of these shows sold completely out within moments of the on-sale. So, if you want to see Zeds Dead, deadmau5, or Kaskade after hours, your best bet will be resale tickets. However, there are tons of amazing afterparties that have yet to sell out including, Baauer, Deorro, Seven Lions, Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike and more.

The music doesn’t stop after the music festival wraps up, the Figure + Doom takeover is the official closing party you don’t want to miss on Monday night. If you don’t mind some fun trickling into the workweek, that is… No matter which Chicago hot spot(s) you end up at, it’s guaranteed to be an amazing party!

Check out Spring Awakening’s full list of official afterparties and hit the links below to get your tickets on lock. We repeat, these will sell out quickly so don’t sleep.
