The Midwest’s heftiest, strictly electronic music festival, Spring Awakening, will be taking its talents to the northwest suburbs of Chicago for its 2019 iteration, which includes an impressive-as-ever top of the ticket: DJ Snake, REZZ, Martin Garrix, Zedd, Illenium, and GRiZ.
The Hoffman Estates-held Spring Awakening will run June 7-9 at Poplar Creek, a 27-acre property (more than double that of 2018’s grounds, Addams/Medill Park). The new locale will likely equip the fest with the means to reduce noise pollution, overcrowding, cramped stage setups, and additional space-oriented festival conundrums. Since its first year as a multi-day festival, Spring Awakening has seen two different venue shifts. It was initially held in downtown Chicago at the hallowed Solider Field from 2012-2015.
Past installments of the React Presents hallmark event brought the likes of Alison Wonderland, Tiësto, Adventure Club, Skrillex, Dillon Francis, and Zeds Dead, just to name a few. This year’s chapter is expected to feature some 90 artists throughout its three-day span.
The entirety of the lineup is set for announcement Friday, March 15. Tickets to Spring Awakening are on sale now, here.
