Ravers showed up catch EDM acts in Solider Field at Spring Awakening Music Festival 2015.

Have you ever been riding the Red Line on a weekend in mid-June and wondered, "Why are there so many people in here wearing neon tank-tops and Japanese kitten hats?" Well, duh, it is Spring Awakening weekend. Organized by the folks behind North Coast Music Festival, the city's biggest EDM festival takes place in Jackson Park this year (the Copa America Centenario soccer tournament is taking over Soldier Field). The party flows over into the Chicago's best dance clubs with several after-parties. Check out our recaps as well as photos of DJs, the best stages and the crazy costumes worn by the crowd.

When is Spring Awakening Music Festival 2016?
