[FESTIVAL COVERAGE] Spring Awakening Music Festival 2013: Day 3 Playlist
The Sights and Sounds has been invited to cover the 2013 Spring Awakening Music Festival at Soldier Field, Chicago and as part of our coverage of the event, and in an effort to continually bring you the best in new and great music, we will be breaking the three day festival into playlist format so you can check out new artists you may not have heard before or rage to your old favorites as the event draws near.
Day 3. The homestretch. While it’s on Sunday, the traditional day of rest, you can bet that their will be no resting at Soldier Field as they festival kicks off it’s final run of artists with more Chicago stars. Taking the early set times finds all sorts of talent coming out of the windy city from energetic sets by Xonic and LoBounce to the infamous Porn N’ Chicken dance party and Red Bull Thre3style winner Trentino.
The afternoon is followed by the massive sounds of Green Lantern as well as another Chicago staple talent, Topher Jones, who you can bet will throw down his huge “Hello Chicago” banger. Break Science will be our choice for the 4:30 set, who’s DJ/live drum duo will be a nice treat for the afternoon. One of the toughest decisions of Sunday comes at 5:30pm, which features performances by the rising star Minnesota as well as Clockwork. However, blowing up the main stage will be Chicago’s very own Krewella – and you can bet they won’t let their hometown down.
Mord Fustang and ATB rock Da Equinox Stage and Da Main Stage next. Two very different artists who will each throw down their own unique blend of styles and sounds in performances that won’t disappoint. The next two hours are a chaotic sonic boom of noise as you will find me stage jumping to try and catch all the amazing talent that will close down Spring Awakening’s second year in Chicago. From the massive dubstep sounds of Figure and Excision to the festival veteran electro house styles of Porter Robinson, Chuckie, Boys Noize, and Tommy Trash.
If you’re still standing after the concussive dose of noise then you can be very happy dancing the last couple hours of Sunday away to the upbeat musings of international beatmaker Calvin Harris. If you aren’t happy with all the music provided for you today, then you may not be human.
