Calling all Spring Awakeners…! Celebrating its 6th annual year, Spring Awakening Music Festival is proud to announce their Phase 2 lineup, and it’s safe to say 2018 may just be the best year yet. Phase 2 unveiled the slew of sensational featured artists on the six Branded Stage extravaganza, as well as Ganja White Night’s addition to SAMF’s signature Equinox stage.


Taking place June 8th-10th in Chicago’s beautiful Addams – Medill Park, fans are going to experience the gathering of world renowned performances and all things dance music. Everything from adrenalizing bass music to euphoric trance melodies, each of the revealed artists who span the six Branded Stages as well as the Solstice and Equinox stages are gearing up to make this a weekend to never forget. Headliners like Tiësto, Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike, Dash Berlin, Afrojack, and Deadmau5 are only the beginning of this outrageous and monumental lineup. 



Amping up the game this year at BASS KITCHEN will be a slew of dubstep, trap, low end frequencies and more. Making his triumphant return, FLUX PAVILLION scored two sets; one solo and one bound to be epic B2B with Circus Record’s DOCTOR P. The rest of the crew ready to rock the house down are BRO SAFARI, BEAR GRILLZ, FIGURE, and BLEEP BLOOP, all expected to unleash full bass potential upon crowds.


After enormous previous success, the DJ MAG stage returns with nothing but high energy performances by headliner NICKY ROMERO (always a favorite), champions of big room music CASH CASH and DEORRO, dance pioneer DESTRUCTO and Mad Decent Records’ powerhouse GRANDTHEFT.


Making its Spring Awakening debut this year will be OLIVER HELDENS’ imprint HELDEEP.
