Fly to Chicago via Chicago O’Hare International Airport. It’s forty minutes away from the festival venue, so arrange transportation to and from the airport ahead of time.
Book a Hotel
Because Spring Awakening is not a camping festival, be sure to book a hotel or Airbnb early. This festival is held in Downtown Chicago, so there are plenty of great options that are close to the festival grounds. The Marriott at Medical District and the Lugo Hotel are within walking distance of the park, giving you a hassle-free festival experience.
