Posted by on June 6, 2016

Come Friday, June 10th, Spring Awakening Music Festival (SAMF) will be celebrating its five-year anniversary by throwing a 3-day party with a hefty lineup of artists. In addition to an impressive bill of performers, SAMF has recently revealed the layout of the new festival grounds, which look equally impressive. The festival contains 2 gorgeous stages, 2 tent structures and a silent disco. In years prior the festival took place at Soldier Field, home of the Chicago Bears… however, for the first time, SAMF will take place at Addams/Medill Park, which is a short 3 miles west of the old venue. The new location and festival grounds allow for more accommodations and a more maneuverable landscape for attendees… an idea that excites us all.

I would see the festival’s name pop up time after time in blogs and Facebook posts, and I became intrigued by the colorful photos and people that caught my attention. I remember sitting at home in the middle-of-nowhere, Pennsylvania, scrolling through photos of the festival, and fantasizing about what it would be like to be in this vibrant scene all dressed in silly clothes with happy-looking humans. Not long after my move to California, an opportunity arose for me to attend the festival; I couldn’t refuse it. The time had finally come for me to find out what Desert Hearts was all about.
