The best part about summertime in Chicago happens to be the plethora of electronic-based events the city houses. From Perry’s Stage at Lollapalooza to North Coast Music Festival, Chicagoans have continually showcased a dedication to their roots. This year, React Presents and The Congress Theater are proud to present Spring Awakening, the first all-EDM festival to ever hit the birthplace of house music, happening June 16th and 17th!
For the first time ever, the inside of the massive Soldier Field football stadium will be converted into a booming mecca for dance music enthusiasts with a broad array of talent ranging from popular big room beats to old school underground grooves. Headliners include the Grammy award-winning Skrillex, Dutch house maestro Afrojack, dirtybird’s Claude VonStroke, and Moby. The rest of the artists run the gamut of genres, with the likes of Ferry Corsten, Markus Schulz, Carl Cox, Dillon Francis, Laidback Luke, and Kill The Noise. Chicago house innovators such as Derrick Carter, Willy Joy, Green Velvet, and Midnight Conspiracy will also take stage, alongside local up-and-comers Team Bayside High, Zebo, and NORdjs. If you’re coming from out of town, the VIP section is worth the splurge as you can observe the whole festival from the colonnades around Soldier Field, overlooking the downtown skyline and Lake Michigan.
