Spring Awakening is celebrating its 5th year anniversary this year and it’s bigger than ever! With its new move to Addams/Medill Park, located in University Village / Little Italy, we know it’s going to be absolutely explosive.

For the first time ever, the festival will host two main stages for fans of only the most impressive names in dance music to enjoy and explore. Spring Awakening’s main DJ STAGE will feature artists including ABOVE & BEYOND, KASKADE, THE CHAINSMOKERS, STEVE AOKI, DILLON FRANCIS, CARNAGE, NICKY ROMERO, DVBBS and DASH BERLIN.

Alongside them, BORGORE, DADA LIFE, TRITONAL, SHOWTEK, CASH CASH and 3LAU will bring serious heat to the festivities, allowing festivalgoers to dance away to a top tier, immersive musical experience unlike anything offered in the Midwest.

Meanwhile, on the second main stage, dubbed the ELECTRONIC STAGE, production legends DEADMAU5, ZEDS DEAD, JAMIE XX, RL GRIME, FLYING LOTUS, CRYSTAL CASTLES, FLUX PAVILION, GRAMATIK, GESAFFELSTEIN, A-TRAK and MADEON will introduce a monumental array of unforgettable live sets. In support of the biggest names in electronic music, other notable acts include HIPPIE SABOTAGE, THE KNOCKS, JAI WOLF, REZZ and TROYBOI. Together, the roster represents some of the most exciting and forward-pushing movements in the genre.


The new venue will provide Spring Awakening fans with easy public transportation options from around the city. Addams/Medill Park is only within a short walk of the CTA Pink Line trains at the 18th Street and Polk Street stops, as well as the Blue Line trains at the Racine stop. It is also accessible from the Ashland, Roosevelt, and 18th St CTA buses. For more details on the various transportation options, click HERE.
