Spring Awakening Festival Hits Chicago This Weekend

Spring Awakening Festival Hits Chicago This Weekend


Spring is in full swing here in the windy city and that means drinking on rooftops, jorts, block parties and plenty of music festivals. And the festival season officially kicks off this weekend with Spring Awakening at Soldier Field. Being billed as an all dance music festival, I’m sure Chicago will represent, from the die-hard house heads to neon tank-wearing bros, and everything in between.

Who’s got us fired up? Well, we are pretty stoked to see Dirtybird bossman Claude VonStroke. Both A-Trak and Dillon Francis always throw down great, technically-advanced sets. Green Velvet will definitely have the home crowd’s attention. Wolfgang Gartner will inevitably have me asking what track this is. The Porn n Chicken Crew will no doubt get us to take our shirts off. Sex Cult founders Designer Drugs will be getting us drunk. And then there is fucking Moby!

Also pretty excited to see some of the up-and-comers, like Stratus and Krewella, to see what vibes they bring to the party.  Plus, a lot of awesome local talent, like our homie PHNM, who will help you learn how to speak Trapistani. Or Zebo, who just always has that pitch-perfect timing.

It should go without saying, with a line-up of such fantastic artists in such a beautiful setting, that this is one Spring fling you don’t want to miss. We’ll be there in full-effect, so come rage with us! Grab your tickets!
