Spring Awakening announces Dates, New Location and Lineup for 2019
On the beautiful frame of Poplar Creek, Spring Awakening Music Festival will return to Chicago with Martin Garrix, ZEDD, Dj Snake and more.
Spring Awakening Music Festival will return to Chicago from 7th to 9th of June 2019. This eighth edition will take place at Poplar Creek at 59-90 Entertainment District in Hoffman Estates, a Northwest Chicago suburb.
Spring Awakening, the largest all-electronic music festival Midwest, returns for its eighth annual installment. Over 90 artists will perform across five unique stages, demonstrating a dynamic variety of genres within the electronic music spectrum. Spring Awakening Music Festival features stunning stage productions, interactive art installations, carnival rides and so much more.
Headlining SAMF 2019 is an all-star lineup including Grammy-nominated hit-maker DJ Snake; Grammy-award winning producer/DJ/multi-instrumentalist/songwriter, ZEDD; DJ Mag’s three-time No. 1 Top 100 list DJ, Martin Garrix; Juno Award-winning Canadian DJ/producer, REZZ; funk/electro-soul/future-funk DJ/producer/sax master GRiZ; and melodic bass producer extraordinaire DJ ILLENIUM. The full lineup will be revealed on Friday, March 15. From Soldier Field to Addams/Medill Park this year edition will take place at Poplar Creek.
“We are excited to announce that SAMF ’19 has relocated to Poplar Creek, a perfect festival location with a rich musical history – adjacent to the Sears Centre Arena, and by the former site of the Poplar Creek Music Theater. This decision was made with our fans in mind, in order to deliver them the best Spring Awakening at a site that will offer a superior experience. Thank you for supporting us and we look forward to seeing you at Spring Awakening 2019!” – co-general managers Patrick Grumley and Matt Rucins.
The full lineup is now available and includes an incredible amount of names. Some notable acts include Galantis, Zomboy, Yellow Claw, Malaa, Dillon Francis, Flosstradamus B2B 4B, Benny Benassi, Space Jesus, Chris Lake, Shiba San, Liquid Stranger, Claptone, Nora En Pure and many more. This year’s Branded Stage showcases will be hosted by Destructo’s AMFAMFAMF (All My Friends), Above & Beyond’sAnjunabeats, and React’s very own Bass Kitchen.
The name Poplar Creek references the popular outdoor music theater at this location in the 1970’s — a successful entertainment venue that lives on in the memory of a generation of music lovers. This atmosphere exists again today and the name was adopted as part of the new identity for an even more robust entertainment area.
The new 2019 location boasts 27 acres of land, nearly double that of last year’s site, which allows for bigger and better stages, more production, and additional experiential environments. Complimentary shuttles from nearby Metra stations to the festival grounds will be provided to fest-goers. Additionally, the grounds are less than ten minutes from multiple hotel options, and for the first time in SAMF history, the location will allow for festival parking on site.
Tickets are now on sale via Spring Awakening website.
