Chicagoland readers be aware, the Spring Awakening 2019 lineup is finally here. Well, some of it, anyway. Some would argue the best parts.
In a new move as of this year, the lineup will be released in two parts. Today’s list of headliners, then another announcement with the remainder of the lineup will come this Friday, March 15th.
Headlining SAMF 2019 is an all-star lineup including Grammy-nominated hit-maker DJ Snake; Grammy-award winning producer/DJ/multi-instrumentalist/songwriter, ZEDD; DJ Mag’s three-time No. 1 Top 100 list DJ, Martin Garrix; Juno Award-winning Canadian DJ/producer, REZZ; funk/electro-soul/future-funk DJ/producer/sax master GRiZ; and melodic bass producer extraordinaire DJ ILLENIUM.
The festival can officially be classified as nomadic, as it relocates once again, this time to the Entertainment District in Hoffman Estates, a suburb northwest of Chicago. It may not be as sexy of a location as a stadium, but hopefully React will use their festival prowess to create a fun and functional experience.
Spring Awakening 2019 will host five stages on 27 acres with sets from over 90 artists, in addition to their usual solid lineup of art installations as well as carnival rides. If you’ve attended a React festival before, you’ll know that they don’t mess around with their stage production.
The festival falls in its now typical place, over the second weekend in June, rather than over Memorial Day in years past.
