About Spring AwakeningFor four years, the Spring Awakening Festival has brought the world’s best electronic music to the heart of Chicago. Onward to 2016, the festival is growing in popularity.
The festival features dozens of renown bands and musicians, a carnival with a Ferris wheel, and visual arts displays. Festival goers can access the site on the Blue Line, and the Pink Line at both 18th Street and Polk stops. Several bus routes pass by the park as well.
There are two main stages, the D.J. Stage and Electronic Stage, plus four smaller stages for near-continuous live sets. The acts cover all varieties of electronic music. The lineup this year includes 100 acts, including Above & Beyond, Cosmic Gate, The Chainsmokers, Datskin, ShowTek, Claude Vonstroke, Dada Life and Steve Aoki.
Up to 120,000 were expected to attend in 2016, which is an amazing increase compared to the first Spring Awakening attendance of 50,000. As the festival’s popularity increases, so will the demand for tickets – so be sure to get your Spring Awakening tickets soon or you might miss out!
