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.

The Chicago-based Spring Awakening Music Festival is back for its second year, and early bird tickets are on sale now. The festival is expanding from two to three days and is set to take place Friday, June 14th through Sunday, June 16th at Soldier Field (rave in a football stadium!). The early bird ticket for this three day festival is now set at a very reasonable $65 price. Last year the lineup featured powerhouse headliner names like Skrillex, Afrojack, Moby, Diplo, A-Trak, Ferry Corsten, and Markus Schulz –to name a few. Between this, the newly announced EDC Chicago, and Lollapalooza, Chicago is shaping up to be a veritable festival city this season.
UPDATE: First round of early bird tickets are now sold out.
With a new radio show under his belt and lots of new music for the summer, Arty took Spring Awakening in full force. The Russian sensation performed along artists like R3hab, Nervo, and Hardwell at Chicago’s newest EDM festival. If you didn’t see Arty at Spring Awakening, then checkout our massive festival guide if you’re trying to catch him this summer – or you could go to the Paladium in LA and see him with Eric Prydz instead.Posted by
Not long ago, there were rumors of an EDM-oriented festival hitting Chicago’s Soldier Field this summer; now, with the official launch of the fest’s lineup and ticketing site, we can confirm the event is happening. Set to take place on June 16th and 17th, the Spring Awakening Festival isn’t exactly taking place this spring… but the roster of performers is so stellar we’ll let it slide. Skrillex and Afrojack are headlining, with Laidback Luke, Wolfgang Gartner, Moby, Flux Pavilion, and many, many more set to hit the decks. Two-day GA passes cost just $99, with VIP passes going for $199. Sadly, Daft Punk is nowhere to be found on the bill – but we think Spring Awakening will rock Chicago nonetheless.
