Traditionally one of the first festivals of the summer, Spring Awakening Music Festival is doing something a bit different for its 2021 edition. The electronic music festival will take place in October this year, taking on the title "Autumn Equinox" for a two-day event featuring more than 50 club-friendly acts like Diplo, Martin Garrix, Dillon Francis and Madeon. The fest is also returning to its old home in Addams-Medill Park after making a move to Hoffman Estates in 2019. The weather maybe a little more chilly than usual, but you'll likely be able to warm up during aftershows at some of Chicago's best dance clubs.

When is Spring Awakening Music Festival 2021?

This year's festival takes place on October 2 and 3.

Where is Spring Awakening Music Festival 2021?

The event is returning to its former home in Addam-Medill Park, located between the Illinois Medical District and Pilsen on Chicago's Near West Side. The park is situated at 1301 W 14th Street—not terribly far from the Polk Pink Line station.
