Since everything is all wacky this year, Spring Awakening had to change things up because their festival doesn’t happen in the spring! Instead, they changed their name to Spring Awakening: The Autumn Equinox. I went to Spring Awakening in 2013 and it was my second festival ever- what a blast! I went again in 2014. The lineup is always KILLER and Chicago is only a few hours from my home base. Anyway, the festival takes place October 2nd and 3rd at Addams/Medill Park in Chicago.
You’ve got your branded stages, Bass Kitchen, The Function, The Hangar, Night Base, and Higher Ground. In addition, tons of huge names. Now- I’m a huge dub fan so my top names might be a little biased. My favorites on the list are Adventure Club b2b Wooli, Bear Grillz, Dillon Francis, Dion Timmer, Diplo, Excision, Doctor P b2b Funtcase, Galantis, Madeon, Martin Garrix, Said the Sky, Showtek, and Zomboy! Of course, there are tons of other great names on this list too!
GA tickets start at $189 plus fees or you can go VIP for $309 plus fees. You’ll get private viewing areas, air conditioned bathrooms, private bars, and more! If you really want to go all out, get their ultimate VIP tickets for $899! That includes an all-inclusive bar, catered food, extra VIP viewing lounges, massages, wifi, lockers, charging, after party tickets, and a concierge host. Sounds like living in luxury to me! See you soon, Chi town!
