With its legendary status already sealed, React Presents is bringing Spring Awakening Music Festival back to iconic Soldier Field in Chicago, IL for its third straight year. Home of the Chicago Bears, for three days this summer, the historic landmark will be home to house, trance, electro, dubstep, trap, and electro soul.
Expanding to three days last year, SAMF is once again going big June 13-15 with Kaskade, Pretty Lights, and Tiësto. The trio of headliners is supported by an all-star cast that includes Knife Party, Diplo, Big Gigantic, Benny Benassi, Bingo Players, Dillon Francis, Eric Prydz, and Flux Pavilion.
Other highlights on the bill include Chicago's own house legends, Green Velvet and Derrick Carter, alongside rising star Manic Focus, who has absolutely shot up as a singular sensation in the last few months. Datsik, Alvin Risk, Destroid, Borgore, Kill The Noise, and Kill Paris are all making appearances at this massive event.
Once again, area hotels will be offering package deals for tickets and rooms, and deluxe levels will give die-hard fans special access to amenities, after-parties, and premium seating. As far as the after-parties go, those will be announced later this spring, and they sell out notoriously fast, so make sure you're all over those.
Tickets are on-sale now, and you can get more information on travel packages and special VIP levels at www.springawakeningfestival.com.
