Despite Rain ‘Spring Awakening’ 2015 Delivers At Chicago’s Soldier Field

Nicole Swanberg is EDM in Stereo’s Chicago correspondent. She likes bass drops, meeting cool new people and looks great in a tutu!

Summer rain, booming bass, hard drops, and LED lights intermixed during Spring Awakening on June 12th through the 14th at Soldier Field. This three-day festival drew over 40,000 per day to the Chicago area to see some of the biggest names in EDM. DJs included Hardwell, Diplo, Zedd, Eric Prydz, Martin Garrix, Duke Dumont, Afrojack, Zeds Dead, Flosstradamus, Zomboy, and Tiesto.

Donned with my blue and white tutu, bikini top, beaded headwrap, gym shoes, Camelbak, lots of glitter, and an arm full of kandi, I arrived at Soldier Field for what would soon become one of the best weekends of my life. I was most excited to see Hardwell, JackÜ, Porn and Chicken, and Flosstradamus on Saturday. Little did I know, I would emerge from my excursion with many new favorite DJs, new friends, and lots of hilarious pictures.

I made it to Spring Awakening super hydrated, but with all the dancing I did, that didn’t last long! I loved that they had water refills stations everywhere, staff and volunteers walking around with signs that said, “Ask me where to refill water”, and someone dressed as an adorable raindrop! The atmosphere was incredible. People were friendly and the crowd was electric!

DJs played at each of the four stages: the main stage (inside the stadium) and three additional stages set up outside the stadium. Confetti fluttered through the air, down onto the pulse of the raging crowd. The bass shook the entire stadium, from the vendors to the trees outside. Spring Awakening was definitely a festival I would recommend!

Porn and Chicken performed at the Equinox Stage and delivered an awesome show. From confetti shooting out to the dancers on stage, their energy was infectious! They dropped their new track “Snapchat That Booty Clap” and the crowd went nuts! Fiery sparks and people in chicken suits were everywhere!

Hundreds of people were running, literally running, to get to the JackÜ show. At the beginning of the Midwest debut of JackÜ, Skrillex and Diplo came out waving “Save JackÜ” flags and it really pumped up the crowd. From start to finish, Skrillex and Diplo put on an incredible show! The crowd was hyped up and I really enjoyed all of their sets! They mostly played remixes, but added in their own interpretation. New material was saved for the end and it was amazing!

Flosstradamus delivered one of the best shows of Saturday night. Their hip-hop/trap sound made me and the rest of my fellow ravers forget the driving rain. I was definitely inspired to dance rather than run for cover; mostly because they kept telling us to “eff the rain”! Flosstradamus was a little vulgar, but that made it fun! Their drops were great, not too long and kept us all engaged!

Hardwell closed out Saturday night with a spectacular performance, at least for the 30 minutes I stayed. Although during those 30 minutes he didn’t release any new tracks, I still enjoyed his hard-hitting drops and driving dance beats. I could feel the adrenaline in the air as the crowd jumped and danced together.
Overall, Spring Awakening was a ton of fun and featured some amazing DJs. I would encourage everyone to go at least once!
