Spring Awakening Announces 2016 Lineup, New Location
The 5-year anniversary of Spring Awakening Music Festival has been something of a question mark in recent months after its original location in Jackson Park fell through. However, the React Presents-hosted festival has announced it has secured a new location in Addams/Medill Park, located in University Village near Ashland and Roosevelt, for the festival’s 2016 edition taking place June 10-12. “In February, Spring Awakening was given conditional approval to announce its move to Jackson Park,” React Presents said in a statement. “But after the announcement, scheduling conflicts arose with another event in the community, and both events were unable to coexist on the same weekend.” Chicago’s largest dance music fest will host over 100 acts including Kaskade, Deadmau5, Above & Beyond, Steve Aoki, Zeds Dead, Flux Pavilion, Madeon, Crystal Castles, Dada Life, A-Track, Flying Lotus, The Chainsmokers, Claude VonStroke, RL Grime, Jamie XX, Nicky Romero, Datsik, Dillon Francis, Gesaffelstein, Gramatik, The Knocks, Simian Mobile Disco, Alison Wonderland, Green Velvet, Pete Tong, Cash Cash, and Chuckie. Tickets are on sale now for $189 and up.
