The complete lineup for the electronic music Spring Awakening Festival was revealed on April 28, along with a change in location.

The fifth-annual event will take place at Chicago’s Addams/Medill Park in University Village, instead of Jackson Park, during June 10-12.

“After experiencing scheduling conflicts with the event’s initial venue of Jackson Park, Spring Awakening is happy to reveal the new and improved location for the festival’s 2016 installment. This year, attendees will experience the event on the sprawling, grass-laden fields of Addams/Medill Park, located in the Near West Side Community of Chicago,” said a statement on the festival’s website.

It will feature five stages, including two main stages, a first for the festival, and will host over 100 acts.

Headliners in the first main stage, the DJ STAGE, will include BOVE & BEYOND, KASKADE, THE CHAINSMOKERS, STEVE AOKI, DILLON FRANCIS, CARNAGE, NICKY ROMERO, DVBBS and DASH BERLIN, and more.

The second stage, the ELECTRONIC STAGE, will feature DEADMAU5, ZEDS DEAD, JAMIE XX, RL GRIME, FLYING LOTUS, CRYSTAL CASTLES, FLUX PAVILION, GRAMATIK, GESAFFELSTEIN, A-TRAK, MADEON, and other series of live sets.

The BASS KITCHEN, BODY LANGUAGE and TRANCE ARENA stages will also be set up in the festival.

In February, 3-day wristbands were on sale for $169, plus fees, but are now selling for $189, plus fees.
