CHICAGO, IL – March 11, 2019 – React Presents is thrilled to announce today the initial six exciting headliners and confirmed location for Spring Awakening Music Festival (SAMF) 2019. The Midwest’s largest all-electronic music festival will return to the Chicagoland area for its eighth year on June 7 through 9 at Poplar Creek at 59-90 Entertainment District in Hoffman Estates, a Northwest Chicago suburb.
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. Tickets for SAMF 2019 can be purchased at www.springawakeningfestival.com.
For 2019 in Poplar Creek, more than 90 artists will perform across five unique stages, demonstrating a dynamic variety of genres within the electronic music spectrum. Spring Awakening Music Festival will also feature stunning stage production, interactive art installations, carnival rides, and much more. More announcements on artists, stages and more will follow shortly.
The new 2019 location boasts 27 acres of land, nearly double that of last year’s site, which allows for bigger and better stages, more production, and additional experiential environments. Complimentary shuttles from nearby Metra stations to the festival grounds will be provided to 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.
React Presents’ co-general managers Patrick Grumley and Matt Rucins said, “We are excited to announce that SAMF ’19 has relocated to Poplar Creek, a perfect festival location with a rich musical history – adjacent to the Sears Centre Arena, and by the former site of the Poplar Creek Music Theater. This decision was made with our fans in mind, in order to deliver them the best Spring Awakening at a site that will offer a superior experience. Thank you for supporting us and we look forward to seeing you at Spring Awakening 2019!”
