Spring Awakening Announces Surprise Trance Arena Guest
With fewer than 10 days to go until the festival, Spring Awakening is ecstatic to reveal the Trance Arena Special Guest! Grammy nominated artist and five-time winner of the annual DJ May Top 100, ARMIN VAN BUUREN will be making an intimate daytime appearance on the Trance Arena stage on Saturday, June 10 from 5:45 to 6:45pm.
This is the first time in Spring Awakening history where a headliner will be performing multiple sets in one weekend! The highly coveted Trance Arena series will returns with expanded production and a special showcase of sonic thrills and euphoric melodies. Alongside Armin, Trance Arena will feature performances by some of the trance family’s leading producers, including Paul van Dyk, Paul Oakenfold, Andrew Rayel and MaRLo.
As Spring Awakening expands the festival grounds at Chicago’s beautiful Addams/Medill Park, fans can expect even more room to dance and relax throughout the weekend, an updated layout and brand-new stage designs! SAMF’s two iconic Main Stages – introduced in 2016 as the DJ Stage and the Electronic Stage – will be transformed into the SOLSTICE Stage and the EQUINOX Stage. The pair of springtime-themed stages will be positioned further apart to allow for an even crisper and cleaner listening experience. Get a sneak peak of the new stage designs in the Flyover video below.

Additionally, Spring Awakening will offer a wide selection of thrilling amusement park rides and activities, including a return of the Silent Disco’s bumper car arena, special performances at the Corona Electric Beach Oasis, and more food and vendor options than ever before. With food options ranging from vegetarian and gluten free to returning fan favorites, attendees will be able to indulge in a diverse selection of tasty and healthy options.
