Spring Awakening Music Festival (SAMF) marked it's birth year on June 16h and 17th as some of the world's top DJs and producers took to Chicago's legendary Soldier Field to tear the house down with over 100,000 EDM fans.

The movement happening within the dance music world is something unlike anything the music industry has ever seen. Its crossing boarders, all walks of life, and creating a unity in a generation that is next to take the reigns of the world. It's no question that the city of Chicago is on the rise in the EDM world with this being just the first of 5 major festivals to take place here in the windy city this summer.

As Chicago's leaders in the music industry and social scene, we are proud to offer you a simple glimpse into that which makes this city special.

This video features some of the biggest names in the EDM world including the likes of Skrillex, Afrojack, Moby, Carl Cox, Benny Benassi, Flux Pavilion, Wolfgang Gartner, Diplo, A-Track, Dillon Francis, 3LAU, Hardwell, NERVO, Shermanology, Midnight Conspiracy and more!

And we are proud to say that some of our best names in music in the Chicago scene played a huge role in the festival as well, including Nathan Scott, Krewella, Porn and Chicken Dance Party, Milk and Cookies, and More!

We would like to give a special shout-out to React Presents, Jeff Callahan, The Mid, Soldier Field, and all others who played a huge role in making this fantastic weekend possible.
