With only 10 days before Chicago's ultimate dance festival begins its third run, preparations for Spring Awakening are well under way. Out of the myriad of events that have popped up over the last few years, React Presents has made a name for itself with the massive electronic engagement. Chicago's Soldier Field will host the event, which is slated to bring over 75 DJs and two main stages to the tens of thousands of fans who will be pouring into the area. Last week we mentioned that GA 3-day passes to the June 13th-15th festival were sold out, but today you have a chance to win a pair of them. Enter below, and you and a friend may be on your way to experience some of the finest dance acts the world has to offer. For those of you who may need some extra space to bust a move, VIP tickets are still available, as well as single days for people who just want a taste of the experience.
One of the best things about Spring Awakening: as the music subsides across Soldier Field, don't expect the fun to stop along with it. The festival has gone further than most others to keep the party going and has put together a whole host of official after parties that will keep you dancing well into the night. Ranging from Eric Prydz at MID Friday, to a yacht party with Tommy Trash on Saturday, and the closing event on Monday with the infamous Porn and Chicken throwdown, you'll be able to find the perfect event from 14 different performances post lights out. Check the after party page to see if you get a double dose of your favorite acts.
If, by now, you still don't have your tickets, take one last gander at Spring Awakening's lineup. The dedicated folks at React have ensured a non-stop delivery of today's latest and greatest electronic acts that will be sure to have you up on your feet for the entire three days. You know the big players by heart, but we've included a few mixes from some of our other favorite acts below. Hope to see you there!
