Spring Awakening, born of Chicagoland’s love affair with electronic dance music, is a giant music festival featuring some of the best known electronic musicians in the country. The lineup of stars includes: Zed, Eric Prydz, Hardwell, Diplo, Tiesto, AfroJack, Dada Life, Excision, Zomboy, Bass Kitchen, Flosstradamus and many more! Guest star to be announced!

Spring Awakening will feature a main stage in the heart of the field and two stages located outside the stadium. There will be food and drink vendors.

Electronic music, or future music, has been around since 1917, and employs the use of invented electric instruments specifically designed to produce sounds and sound patterns. It can involve tape, computers, synthesizers, drum machines, and multimedia. Once confined to studio recordings because of the size of the equipment (“Sergeant Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band” couldn’t be performed live at its inception), electronic music plays live thanks to advances in smaller and smaller computers and systems.

Soldier Field is located at 1410 South Museum Drive. For tickets, go to www.ticketmaster.com and follow the prompts to Spring Awakening at Soldier Field. No one under the age of eighteen will be admitted.
