Spring Awakening, Chicago’s first two-day all-dance festival, debuts this June

From React Presents comes Spring Awakening, Chicago’s first all-dance music festival. The festival will take over Soldier Field at Stadium Green June 16-17 and will feature three massive stages with some of the biggest names in electronic dance music today, including Skrillex, Afrojack, Moby and countless others. This is definitely not a festival to miss this summer!

Spring Awakening was originally a one-day event held at the Congress Theater in Chicago but has since outgrown the 4,800-person capacity venue after selling out two consecutive years in a row. React Presents is also the production group behind the annual North Coast Music Festival, also held in Chicago.
