Spring Awakening Music Festival 2015
Written by Z Mart

Spring Awakening Music Festival is upon us, with only one month to go! June 12th-14th, React Presents has brought us an incredible lineup for its fourth year at Soldier Field. First, Hardwell, ranked by DJ Magazine as the number one DJ in the world in both 2013 and 2014, will be headlining on Saturday night. Following him on Sunday night will be returning legend Tiesto! These are two top ten artists you will not want to miss!


As always, we have a bouquet of house producers including Zedd, Afrojack, Dada Life, Ummet Ozcan, Oliver Heldens, DVBBS and W&W, just to name a few. We are sure to run the trap this year with Diplo, Flosstradamus, Bro Safari, Brillz, Party Favor and Keys N Krates. Dubstep isn’t shy either with Zomboy, Excision, Adventure Club, Pegboard Nerds and Borgore. With the ‘Surprise Headliner’ which now is confirmed to be Jack U, we are in for one insane year at SAMF 2015!

Since 2012, React Presents has presented Chicago with one of the most rapidly growing festivals in the city. Last year’s event drew nearly 100,000 total fans. This year, more than 75 artists will make an appearance for a full weekend of rage. SAMF’s line up only intensifies in 2015 and with the addition of its unnamed fourth stage (which will be located on Soldier Field’s east wing) continues to thrive for more.


The Spring Awakening DJ Contest is underway and the Grand Prize winner will play a set on one of the main stages at Spring Awakening with two Runner-ups playing the always exciting Silent Disco. Out of the top 15 finalists, SAMF judges will choose the winners based on mixing ability, production, and overall performance. A few of the top 15 finalist to date include: KeeNxBussA, DJ SSAB, Tony Trixx, ZeroGravity and Static. This is where SAMF delivers back to its fans. It’s a chance to showcase raw talent in a breathtaking environment.


SAMF desires to be a one of a kind festival and they succeed on many levels. Two years later, I still remember every moment inside Solider Field back in 2013. With their persistent push to beat previous year’s lineup and the unbeatable atmosphere that Chicago offers, SAMF will continue to shine years to come!
