The Midwest's big, bad EDM bash is back. Boasting massive names in dance music as well as upstarts, Chicago's Spring Awakening continues to hold its own against coastal rivals. Its Phase One lineup dropped today, and it features Hardwell, Kaskade, Tiesto, Steve Aoki, Alison Wonderland, Afrojack, deadmau5, and Big Gigantic, alongside Slander, Porter Robinson's new project Virtual Self, and BTSM. From trance to trap, this is a solid Phase One announcement.

Once the stages go dark, Spring Awakening's afterparties light up. Luckily, React Presents knows exactly how to throw some of the best you'll ever attend. Every year they partner with some of Chicago’s best clubs to create official after parties fit for a festival this epic. Be sure to check the website to know exactly where to be once the festival grounds close.

When people think about the EDM scene, the Midwest is probably not the first place that comes to mind. However, with more festivals popping up every year, the region is becoming a destination for dance music fans across the country. Spring Awakening, put on by React Presents, is at the forefront of this growing movement and will continue to be with massive lineups like this. See you at Addams-Medill Park!

Spring Awakening takes place June 8-10, 2018. Tickets available here.
