Spring Awakening: The Autumn Equinox

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!
