Spring Awakening Music Festival Announces 2017 Phase 2 Lineup

After making waves amongst the dance music community with its massive Phase 1 lineup that featured some of the world’s largest DJs accompanied by six Branded Stage showcases, Spring Awakening Music Festival (SAMF) welcomes additional artists for its 2017 edition, taking place June 9 – 11 at the beautiful Addams/Medill Park.
Representing the most epic and highly anticipated side of Spring Awakening’s Phase 2 announcement will be soaring EDM mainstay BORGEOUS, returning to the city after a sold-out night at Concord Music Hall, powerful live trap trio and Chicago favorites KEYS N KRATES, hip hop infused dance producer MR.CARMACK, German powerhouse ROBIN SCHULZ and the master of all things bass, GHASTLY.

Alongside them, mysterious masked deep house legend MALAA, the face of hardstyle HEADHUNTERZ and OWSLA poster child MIJA, fresh off the release of her first solo original release, “Secrets,” will take to the SAMF stages for unique and powerful sets of their own.
Rounding out the Phase 2 roster will be none other than Australia’s most prolific bass artist WHAT SO NOT, experimental and indie-minded bass icon VANIC, undisputed champion of Melbourne bounce TJR, and the internationally renowned Norwegian wizard ALAN WALKER. Together, the diverse gang of dance music’s most notable contributors are primed to bring their very best to Chicago during another installment of the Midwest’s premier dance music festival.

Spring Awakening Music Festival (SAMF) is proud to announce 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 homebase 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 legend AFROJACK 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.3-Day General Admission and VIP early bird tickets are now on sale at!

To accompany the first phase of artists from around the world, Spring Awakening also reveals the identity of this year’s six Branded Stage showcases. React’s coveted branded event series returns with another round of specially curated stages for fans to explore. Whether you’re searching for soaring thrills and infectious rhythms of the TRANCE ARENA, the BASS KITCHEN’s perfect combination of grit and grime, or simmering house stylings of the iconic BODY LANGUAGE series, there’s a stage for everyone to call home.

For the very first time, the festival’s 2017 edition will also receive new stage takeovers from three diverse brands within the dance music community. Attendees will experience uniquely tailored lineups from SUNDAY SCHOOL, featuring both big-name and underground champions currently dominating the scene, Above & Beyond’s deep house imprint ANJUNADEEP providing endlessly groovy beats from all corners of the circuit, and acclaimed music publication DANCING ASTRONAUT with its own all-star lineup of DJs from the highest realms of EDM stardom.
As the waves of joy and excitement from Phase 1 wash over us all, attendees can look forward to even more names on the Phase 2 announcement along with the branded stage performers, which will be revealed over the coming weeks!
