Chicago is clearly the place to be for festival season’s impending comeback, with Spring Awakening now joining the city’s already bursting fall schedule that includes North Coast Music Festival, ARC Fest’s September premiere, and Lollapalooza‘s reported summer return. Dubbed with an apt, temporary Autumn Equinox rebrand, Spring Awakening will be headed to back to one of their earlier Windy City venues, announcing a two-day event for October 2 – 3 that will be hosted at Addams/Meddil Park for the event’s milestone 10th anniversary.
For those still weighing the lengthy list of festival options for later this year, Spring Awakening makes a convincing case for frontrunner with one of the most stacked dance bills anyone’s seen in a while. Splitting more than 60 acts across the back-to-back October dates, Spring Awakening will be bringing in Martin Garrix, Madeon, hosting RL Grime and Baauer sharing the decks, Midnight Kids, MitiS, Adventure Club B2B Wooli, SIDEPIECE, MK, Said The Sky, Excision, Dillon Francis, and more. From Diplo to Valentino Khan and 4B‘s Hulk Gang cohort, Chris Lorenzo to Galantis, Spring Awakening is promising a raucous comeback in 2021.
