Spring Awakening is only a few short days away! With an incredible line up of hard hitting artists, it is sure to be a weekend for the books. On top of the stacked roster of DJs and producers, Spring Awakening Music Festival has announced five days of pre-festival, post festival, and day-of after parties to keep you going all weekend long.
Artists playing these city-based shows include Illenium, Alan Walker, Malaa, Cheat Codes, Zomboy, and many more. Find tickets to each after party here.
There is one catch – all of the after parties are being held at Chicago venues. After all, this is the festival’s first year in the suburb of Hoffman Estates, Illinois. It makes sense, since there is definitely a lack of venues with large enough capacity to hold these post-festival shows in the area. However, unless you’re staying in the city (almost an hour away), or are only attending one day of the festival, getting to these events could prove a bit tricky. Venues include Sound-Bar, TAO Nightclub, PRYSM, Bounce, Electric Hotel, and Spybar. All after parties are 21+, save for the closing party on Monday, which is 18+.
With almost an hour of travel between the festival itself and these parties, it may be difficult to pack these venues with actual festival-goers. But EDM fans in the Chicago area are in luck, as you don’t need a festival wristband to attend these shows. Assuming many attendees may be deterred from making the trek back into the city during a massive post-festival traffic jam, expect plenty of space to dance your heart out at whichever after party you choose.
