With such a crazy amount of talent on the SAMF lineup this year, it must be driving you insane trying to make up your mind on who to see! I’m here to tell you to chill out, and make your life a little easier by letting you in on the 5 sets you must see this year at Spring Awakening!
- Shiba San
Oh, Shiba…Shiba, Shiba, Shiba. As I sit here and write out this article, I am blasting this man’s beautiful arrangement of music he absolutely destroyed the Woogie Stage with at this year’s Lightning in a Bottle. (Set found here. You’re welcome.) You can clearly hear the crowd going nuts! Lord knows my anxiety is boiling ever so greatly to see this man blaze the decks this year with his signature bass heavy ghetto funk style that is guaranteed to keep that booty movin’. Bring a change of underwear ladies and gentlemen. This one’s gonna get dirty. Catch him playing the Equinox Stage on Friday from 6:00-7:00!
- Justin Martin
No matter where Justin goes, he is sure to bring the party with him! And on Sunday, from 4:30-5:30, at the Beatport stage will be where it’s all going down! The well-known pizza enthusiast and Dirtybird Records tech-house heavyweight will be laying down the hot, hot fire that will make your body move in ways you never thought possible. He is certain to make his debut year at Spring Awakening an unforgettable dance floor experience for all festival-goers.
Bringing his hard-hitting, bass-saturated beats from all the way across the pond to Spring Awakening will be none other than the trap star himself, Hucci. Not familiar with him? You’ve got plenty of time to get acquainted with his full catalogue of trap bangers found on his soundcloud page. Be sure to catch this homie trapping hard Sunday Night at the Phoenix Stage from 6:15-7:15! Things are about to get real turnt.
- Eric Prydz
Who remembers this man’s glorious performance from last year’s Spring Awakening? I know I am not the only one. To be honest; I shed tears of joy then, and I’m ready to shed some more. Bringing his arsenal of originally produced tracks to close out the Equinox Stage on Friday night will be none other than the Swedish progressive house mastermind himself; Eric Prydz. The magic starts at 9. You don’t want to miss this.
- Jack U
Last but most certainly not least. The moment you have been waiting for since before you even thought it was possible that these two monumental artists would ever even consider about getting together. Skrillex and Diplo’s Midwest debut of their super-group; Jack U. This one should be a no brainer for you EDM fans. Go see them tear apart the Main Stage from 6:30-7:30!
