Spring is just around the corner, and with the warmer weather comes the sixth annual edition of Spring Awakening Music Festival! Set to return to the sprawling greenery of Addams/Meddill Park from Friday, June 9 to Sunday, June 11, the festival is primed to send electronic music fans to their ultimate happy place with a lineup stuffed to the gills with outstanding live and DJ sets from the scene’s most notable acts. Today, Spring Awakening is proud to present the complete Phase 1 lineup for this year’s event.
Returning attendees will have a chance to experience the power of Spring Awakening’s two main stages – appropriately named Solstice and Equinox – standing as homebase for the event’s biggest names and performances! The Solstice Stage will be occupied by immense DJ sets from trance godfather ARMIN VAN BUUREN, former Swedish House Mafia members AXWELL /\ INGROSSO, the king of twerk himself, DIPLO, Swedish mainstay ALESSO, and masked future bass titan MARSHMELLO. Alongside them, shark squad leader JAUZ and Dutch electro house legend AFROJACK will take to the decks along with 2016 Top 100 DJs winner MARTIN GARRIX and renowned trap duo YELLOW CLAW.
Meanwhile, on the Equinox Stage, performances from dubstep dominator DATSIK, bass wizard EXCISION, and drumstick-wielding duo GALANTIS, and South African crew DIE ANTWOORD will shake the festival floor with raucous productions and DJing expertise. Joining them will be funkmaster and first-time Spring Awakening performer GRIZ, Chicago’s own KREWELLA and LOUIS THE CHILD, UK house producer DUKE DUMONT, as well as the mysterious and soulful ZHU.
To accompany the first phase of artists, Spring Awakening also reveals the identity of this year’s six Branded Stages. React’s coveted branded event series returns with another round of specially curated stages for fans to explore. Whether you’re searching for the soaring thrills and infectious rhythms of the TRANCE ARENA, the BASS KITCHEN’s perfect combination of grit and grime, or the simmering house stylings of the iconic BODY LANGUAGE series, there’s a stage for everyone to call home.
For the very first time, the festival’s 2017 edition will also receive new stage takeovers from three diverse brands within the dance music community. Attendees will experience uniquely tailored lineups from SUNDAY SCHOOL, featuring both big-name and underground champions currently dominating the space, Above & Beyond’s deep house imprint ANJUNADEEP providing endlessly groovy beats from all corners of the circuit, and acclaimed music publication DANCING ASTRONAUT with its own all-star lineup of DJs from the highest realms of EDM stardom.
