Spring Awakening Music Festival (SAMF) recently announced a massive Phase 1 lineup for its sixth annual installment, taking place at Adams/Medill Park on Friday, June 9th through Sunday, June 11th. Over 80 artists will perform across five unique stages, demonstrating a dynamic variety of genres within the electronic music spectrum.
Returning attendees will have a chance to experience the power of Spring Awakening’s two main stages - appropriately named Solstice and Equinox - standing as home base for the event’s biggest names and performances! The Solstice Stage will be occupied by immense DJ sets from trance godfather ARMIN VAN BUUREN, former Swedish House Mafia members AXWELL /\ INGROSSO, the king of twerk himself, DIPLO, Swedish mainstay ALESSO, and masked future bass titan MARSHMELLO. Alongside them, shark squad leader JAUZ and Dutch electro house legendAFROJACK will take to the decks with 2016 Top 100 DJs winner MARTIN GARRIX and renowned trap duo YELLOW CLAW.
Meanwhile, on the Equinox Stage, performances from dubstep dominator DATSIK, bass wizard EXCISION, and drumstick-wielding duo GALANTIS, and South African crew DIE ANTWOORD will shake the festival floor with raucous productions and DJing expertise. Joining them will be funkmaster and first-time Spring Awakening performer GRIZ, Chicago’s own KREWELLA and LOUIS THE CHILD, UK house producer DUKE DUMONT, as well as the mysterious and soulful ZHU. If you're looking for an experience unlike any other for a reasonable price, SAMF 17 should be on your festival radar. Having attended the last three years, the festival never ceases to surprise us both visually and sonically.
