1) STAY HYDRATED AND KEEP COOL! The weather forecast is looking perfect, but don’t underestimate the heat so take time to refill your water at one of our four refill stations located on the MAP. Remember, empty camel backs ARE allowed, so come prepared! And if it gets into the 90’s we’ll be turning on the Spray Mist Station located on the basketball courts so be sure to take advantage and cool down with that. It’s a long weekend, take time to rest and hydrate!
In an effort to make SAMF weekend as stress-free as possible for all attending, we’ve decided to open up a Will Call in the days leading up to the fest. This way anyone who needs to go to Will Call to pick up their wristband can do so prior to the fest and avoid lines.
This includes anyone on the guest list or anyone who purchased a pass but did not get their wristband delivered to them. Government issued photo ID will be required at Will Call and the name on the order must match the name on the ID.

React’s highly coveted Trance Arena series returns to this year’s Spring Awakening with a special showcase of melodic thrills and euphoric melodies dedicated to the veteran stage.

Sunday School, the longstanding series known for its defining takeovers at events like Mysteryland and Electric Zoo, will be curating its own lineup of diverse talent during this year’s Spring Awakening, providing the “festival within a festival” atmosphere that’s made it famous. Headlining the action will be famed North London duo Gorgon City, as they return to Chicago for a raucous set atop the Sunday School Stage decks.
