Spring Awakening Is Back And Brand New, Baby — Here's What You Need To Know

Spring Awakening has become one of the most popular music festivals, attracting numerous goers every year with its incredible music and fun atmosphere. This year, after multiple venue changes, the festival will take place at Poplar Creek in Hoffman Estates, IL. The layout of the festival will not just leave attendees in awe but also truly cater to each one of them. With a 27-acre land to work with, the site will fit about five individually unique and bigger stages than before. The new production sets will be roofed to offer and allow more lights and lasers. Taking a page out of the Coachella playbook, SAMF will also have carnival rides implemented into the festival grounds as well.

Now that the grounds are bigger, there is more room for more things to be placed! Check out the official video of the design:


For the past six years, attendees have always had an amazing experience at Spring Awakening. It has become one of the most anticipated events in the Chicagoland area every single summer. From June 7th to June 9th, goers will experience yet another spectacle — something out of a movie. The festival grows and improves every single year.

Along with entirely new venue plans, the line up is absolutely mind-blowing. Many of the top artists and producers will be performing. Everyone is bound to find an artist of their liking as there is a huge variety of genres — dubstep, trap, bass, progressive house, EDM, house, deep house, trance, techno, electro, POP, chill out, downtempo, and UK garage.

From Grammy-award winner Zedd to Grammy-nominated DJ Snake, there are more than 90 amazing artists that will be there. The complete lineup can be found here as well as the daily roaster.

I cannot wait to see my favorite artists! I am most excited to see DJ's like Illenium, Zedd, Zomboy, Martin Garrix, Rezz, Cheat Codes, and Dom Dolla. But, I look forward to discovering more artists and hear different genres than the ones I usually gravitate towards!

Spring Awakening has been one of the staples in Chicago for the past six years. Of course, plans do not always work out as perfectly as one would hope, but they continue to try and incorporate new things that work at other festivals as well. After all, trial and error make perfect, right?

In addition to all of the changes this year, SAMF will be offering parking and shuttles. There are two options for parking: General Parking and Preferred Parking. For anyone not driving, taking a shuttle is another means of transportation to get to the venue that will run for the entirety of all three days. Hotel + ticket packages are also available, and a list of hotels has been provided by SAMF. The hotels are located in nearby areas for better accommodations.

Tickets are still available for purchase. While a 3-day pass is a primary option, single-day general admission tickets are being sold, too!

Let the countdown begin!

11 Songs That Will Hit You In The Feels, No Doubt About It

One of my favorite things to do when it comes to music is making different playlists on Spotify. I find it so fun to go back to old songs, find new ones, and categorize them into my different playlists. We all have that one playlist that we resort to when we are really feeling some type of way — also known as a "feels" playlist. If you have one of these playlists or feel ~inspired~ to make one, here are 11 songs that are a must to add.

The Boyfriends Of The 2000s

Thank you, J14, for the Posters

Every girl remembers her first crush. Even if your first crush was the boy in your kindergarten class that ate crayons, your first true love will always be the one that holds the key to your heart. Growing up in the 2000s, everyone knew who your dream guy was. Your family probably still give you grief and your best friends probably still reminisce, so it is impossible to forget your first celebrity crush. You bought a Tiger Beat magazine every chance you could just to read up about what your favorite celebrity was doing. Your room was fully decorated with posters of them, and it wasn't unusual to have fights with your best friends over who was going to marry him. If you were a 90's baby, lucky you because the 2000s were full of boys that were easy to love. I hope you enjoy a walk down memory lane and quickly realize that Bieber was definitely not the first guy with that hair cut. Here are 15 90's baby's first boyfriends.

20 Things I Learned By The Start of My 20s

No one expects you to have your life together by the time you're 20, because honestly, they didn't either.

We are all often faced with many life challenges throughout the time leading up to our 20s. Before this time, and throughout it, we often look back at the things we've learned and how they've influenced who we are as people today. Some of my biggest influences were some of the challenges I've faced, but they've taught me 20 important things by the start of my 20s.

The Boyfriend Recipe

The ingredients to build a relationship are a little more complicated than just a bouquet of flowers and a box of candy.

11854

Relationships. Long distance or not, significant others are much more than just that. I would be lying if I said I did not love the sweet gestures that only a boyfriend can give. The flowers, funny phone calls, hand holding, breakfast dates, and tight hugs are special but my relationship and many others out there exist on much more than just these little gestures. It is a tricky concoction that consists of one part boyfriend and two parts best friend and would not work without one part or the other. While having a relationship may not be quite as easy as baking a batch of cookies, it has its own recipe (with a few variations for flavor) to follow for a good match.
