It's about that time folks...SUMMER MUSIC FESTIVAL SEASON!
One week from today kicks off Chicago's first Summer musical festival, Spring Awakening. For those of you unfamiliar (and if you read my blog regularly, you aren't one of these people), SAMF is held every year at Soldier Field to showcase some of the music industry's hottest EDM DJs including: ZEDD, Duke Dumont, Hardwell, and Tiesto to name a few. There are multiple different stages throughout the grounds, including a silent disco tent, so I'd recommend downloading the festival's app and making your customized schedule prior to the fest to make sure you don't miss your favorite artists.
Also, a few tips for you first timers:
- Make sure to HYDRATE! Drink lots of water the night before, throughout the day, and before you go to bed.
- Make sure to use a small purse or even better, festival fanny pack. If you bring a bag that's too big, you'll regret it later it the day when it becomes heavy to carry. It's also hard to move through the crowds with a backpack or big purse.
My STYLE PICK would be 84Rockwell's Daley pack!
- There is no re-entry to the festival once you're in, so make sure not to forget anything.
- Make sure to wear comfortable clothing that you can be in all day, get down & dirty in, and are fine walking 2 miles in since there's no easy way to get down to the football field.
