Entering their sixth year, React Presents’ Spring Awakening Music Festival has pulled out all the stops for their 2018 lineup. The festival is back at Adams-Medill Park from June 8th to 10th, and they’ve invited a group of artists that will please a vast range of electronic fans—trap fans will get wild for Carnage and Baauer, bassheads will headbang to Zeds Dead and Seven Lions, and big house fans will bop along to Hardwell and Tiesto. One of the most exciting parts of this lineup is Porter Robinson’s new project Virtual Self, which will be making its Chicago debut at SAMF.
The branded stages bring even more heavy-hitters to the Windy City, like UK house legends Sasha & John Digweed, and resident EDM dad Destructo. This year, SAMF is on track to cement itself as one of the most important national EDM festivals, sitting right next to Ultra Music Festival.
It’s sure to be a party to remember this summer—purchase tickets now, before the next price increase occurs. Spring Awakening Music Festival is an 18+ festival, and is currently offering payment plans for their 3-day GA and VIP ticketing options.
