With dozens of festivals popping up as the EDM bubble continues its precarious swell, lineups start to meld together, sets start to sound similar, and it becomes very difficult for any particular act to stand out. Yet after letting the Spring Awakening wave fully wash over us, there was one set that refused to sink back into blur, and that set was Nero’s.
A hashtag, an acronym, and a feeling, “SAMF” triggers different memories for each Spring Awakening attendee. Though the festival itself has now drawn to a close, the reminiscing has just begun, and a stacked Sunday gave even more material to nostalgically sift through. While we could bring you the ATB, Break Science, Chuckies of Spring Awakening Day 3, we’re bringing you the SAMFs to fully exercise the acronym one last time.
With the ground no longer vibrating beneath our feet and the beats done reverberating in our brains, it’s time for the Spring Awakening Day 2 round-up. With sets from Paul Oakenfold, Zeds Dead, Lucky Date and more, we could tell you about each set, each scream and each smile, but instead we’ve opted to tell you about the night based on what was left behind. We give you five things found on the ground at Spring Awakening this past Saturday.
Chicago’s Spring Awakening Music Festival touched down on Soldier Field this Friday, kicking off the summer’s in-city festivals. We joined the neon hordes thronging Museum Campus Drive, ready to party on the 50 yard line. With two days and dozens of acts left to go, here’s what we learned from Spring Awakening Day One.
With just hours until Soldier Field plays host to EDM heavyweights and their eager fans at Spring Awakening, the team over at React Presents invites you to take a minute to appreciate the effort that went into building the stages you’ll soon be screaming at. With a football field, a forklift, and ducks making cameos, the video ends on a cliffhanger: The final touches will only be revealed when the gates open at 3:30 p.m this afternoon.Posted by

Chicago’s premiere dance music event has finally announced its 2013 lineup. Headlined by Bassnectar, Calvin Harris and Moby the festival boasts over 50 artists representing a variety of dance music’s most popular genres. The legendary Crystal Method also make an appearance as well as sets from Wolfgang Gartner, Paul Oakenfold, Dirty South, Boys Noize and more. Leaning heavily towards the heavier sounds of electro, dub, and trap, Spring Awakening is a festival not for the faint of heart.
Even though we were quick enough to catch the leaked lineup on Clubtix last week, Chicago’s Spring Awakening phase one lineup has now been officially announced. The three day event returns to Chicago Bears’ home turf, Soldier Field, and will take place between June 14 and 16 (extending one more day than its inaugural year in 2012). Three day GA passes are available for $145 and VIP start at $200 for the weekend. Click through for a ticket purchase link!
Chicago dance music fans have another reason to rejoice for this upcoming festival season — Spring Awakening has just announced the first wave of its lineup for the three-day June festival. Well, not exactly. Earlier today, Clubtix accidentally uploaded an image which revealed the “first wave” of artists that have been booked for the three day festival that is set to take place from June 14th-16th.
The first wave of performers include: Calvin Harris, Bassnectar, Wolfgang Gartner, Zedd, Nicky Romero, Porter Robinson, NERVO, among many others (see image above for full details). Early bird tickets have been sold out for a while now, but Spring Awakening will announce their full lineup and 2nd round of tickets shortly.
