Spring Awakening 2017 Recap!
I had the most amazing time at Spring Awakening last weekend! It's been a tough week of recovery, but it was a great way to kick off summer festival season here in Chicago. With multiple stages in a setup similar to that of Coachella or Lollapalooza, React Presents kept the crowd energized all weekend long for the sixth year in a row with an incredible lineup full of surprises and pyrotechnics. The festival's expansion in Addams/Medill Park made sound bleed almost nonexistent between stages. They also had much more room for entertainment such as carnival rides and a Corona Beach Oasis. Even despite losing Axwell and Ingross on Saturday (the pair had to cancel last minute after it was announced that Ingrosso's laptop and passport were stolen), the day was still full of amazing performances by Zhu, Diplo, Rfus du Sol and Armin Van Buuren.
Watching the sunset over the Chicago skyline was truly unforgettable, and I can promise you I'll be back again next year.
