EDM fans can breathe a sigh of relief as React Presents has finally released more details about the annual electronic spectacle that is Spring Awakening Music Festival! SAMF 2019 the Midwest’s largest all-electronic music festival, is now in its eighth year and is expanding its reach. Starting out at Soldier Field before moving to Addams/Medill Park the past few years, SAMF will now be moving their energetic festival over to Poplar Creek at 59-90 Entertainment District in Hoffman Estates, a Northwest Chicago suburb on June 7th through 9th.
SAMF’s move to Poplar Creek will allow for more than 90 artists to perform across five unique stages, letting dynamic variety of genres within the electronic music spectrum to flourish as well as provide for additional experiential environments including carnival rides & interactive art installations throughout the three-day festival.
In addition to the new location, a great group of headliners were announced including DJ Snake, ZEDD, Martin Garrix, REZZ, GRiZ, and ILLENIUM. Of course this is just a taste of the lineup, which will be fully revealed on Friday, March 15.
The move outside Chicago proper surely has a few fans a little worried about transportation, but fret not. React Presents will be offering complimentary shuttles from nearby Metra stations to the festival grounds for fest-goers. Additionally, the grounds are less than ten minutes from multiple hotel options, and for the first time in SAMF history, the location will allow for festival parking on site.
Tickets for this electronic music fan’s dream come true are available now! The early bird three day passes are still available at $169 for GA admission and $299 for VIP (21+) passes which include express dedicated lanes to the festival ground, access to premium VIP viewing areas and exclusive VIP bars!
