UNIVERSITY VILLAGE — Electronic dance music festival Spring Awakening will return to the Near West Side this summer.
Festival organizers announced the three-day music festival will again be staged in Addams/Medill Park in University Village June 9-11, according to the fest's website.
Three-day general admission passes are now on sale for $159. VIP passes, for patrons 21 and up, are on sale for $249.
While Ald. Jason Ervin fielded few formal complaints about the fest last year, some neighbors described the fest as "super loud" and disruptive.
Founded as a concert series in 2008, Spring Awakening promoters decided to launch a two-day outdoor music festival at Soldier Field in 2012, where it was hosted through 2015. But a scheduling conflict with the Copa America soccer tournament booted the fest from Soldier Field last year, and Spring Awakening was forced to find a new home.
