AAAHHHH the heat of Chicago summer is always amazing. Even if you’re not a summer or heat person, the warm air and lake breeze puts you in the let’s-go-outside-and-do-something mood! As calendars start to fill up, we’re lucky to compare these plans to the amazing experience Spring Awakening Music Festival 2017 provided us. Sure, every experience is unique, but come on! One can’t have a fun night without remembering other great ones… So, here’s a piece of our Spring Awakening experience.
First day was packed! There were lines for the lines to get in lines to get anything! Though it may sound like a negative, it isn’t. It’s a great thing! Nobody wants to go to an empty festival!! The rides looked amazing, we didn’t get a chance to hop on any, and the food smelled even better! A huge high five to SAMF for their stage game this year. Love how, like years past, the Silent Disco is in a bumping cars festival ride set up… LOVE THAT!! The branded tents were pretty epic, and a huge step up from last year! Another high five!! And both the main stages stood tall and grand to host some of the biggest names in electronic music. 3 days of heat, filled with huge talent equals to (at least for us and for those we witness) a successful Spring Awakening Music Festival experience.
The VIP experience is for sure the way to go, if you can invest a few more $$ in your festival experience, do it! With that, I think a club VIP sponsor would take the whole experience to the next level! The elevated areas can have ‘sections’ or bottle service. There can be multiple bars and even servers for those lounging around… you know, boujee VIP experience! The Corona Electric Beach Oasis was so bomb! I will say this, React Presents has a special touch at each of their festivals and that’s this little bobble like stages that teleport you into a different world within their festival world! The oasis was hot, temp and vibe, the music thumped and the party literally felt as if we were on a beach!
Spring Awakening 2017, for us you were great! Thank you for bringing the Midwest festival lovers together with a great festival, beautiful music and unforgettable memories! Did you go to Spring Awakening 2017? Tells us about it! We want to hear from you.
You know when you listen to a song for the first time, that you like, your body feels a spark of energy that isn’t like a loud scream or a sick shuffle. It’s like a buildup of energy that boils up as the song progresses. Sometimes it dies, cuz the song sucks, and others it boils to an eruption of alone-in-the-car-dancing or trying-to-sing-the-unfamiliar-words-into-your-brush jumps while getting ready. Well, this was my feeling while I was watching Sonny Alven‘s video trailer to his newest EP – Girls.
The trailer previews the three tracks in the EP and teases the highly entertaining upcoming videos. Sonny Alven has a great sound, he combines upbeat melodies with a subtile tropical house vibe while weaving in sensual lounge-like thumps. Sonny, you now have a new fan! Check out the Girls EP trailer above and purchase the single here.
We’re only a couple of months away from Spring Awakening and our excitement is literally through the roof! The 2017 lineup is literally bomb and we can’t help ourselves to tell our friends ‘YOU MUST COME!!!’ Yes, we love festivals, but not just any. The vibe is just as important as the music. This year, Spring Awakening has gathered some killer musicians to take over their four stages over the June 9th weekend. Each day is jam packed with some of the biggest names in the music industry, giving festival goers some of the best electronic music industry options!

What happens when the sexiest city in the US is hosting an epic music week and you add, not only it’s regular sexy people, some of the hottest names in the electronic music industry AND place them in one of the newest and freshest rooftops? ME! You get ME Miami!!!
The iconic hotel chain celebrated it’s official Miami residence during the last three days of Miami Music Week. ME Miami partnered with Urban Junkies, Pacha Ibiza and Café Mambo Ibiza to celebrate the brands expansion. Located on the 14th floor, the luxury lifestyle hotel has a main pool and infinity-edge lap pool with views of the bay, surrounded by sunbeds and cabanas… all while Ultra Music Festival lights up the sky a few blocks over.
The music was sexy (Jasper James, Hot Since 82, Guy Gerber, Lauren Lanem, La Fleur), The people (of course) was sexy, the place (everything!) was sexy, and so was the vibe and energy. What’s more exciting? We now have a 2nd place to crash in Miami! ME Miami is incredible and can for sure host a killer party!
Sophie Francis has been on the electronic music scene for a little over a year now and is already hitting the Ultra Music Festival Worldwide state… THAT’S UNREAL! The freshly 18 yearold started her DJing career as a high school project. Her passion for music, love of people, and ability to create has brought her to live a dream she didn’t know she had. We found ourselves chatting with her at the backstage lounge of the SiriusXM Music Lounge Miami about her journey and what’s next. Check out our interview with her, you’ll fall in love with her, if you’re not already!
Sophie, you’re such an inspiration!! Can’t wait to see you at Ultra Music Festival 2017!
Kicking off Miami Music Week at the SiriusXM Music Lounge Miami at the beautiful 1 Hotel. While enjoying the sun and sipping on some well deserved drinks, we wait for our time with Dutch brother duo DubVison. We’ve loved their music and this time with them is pretty exciting.
