Spring Awakening reveals multifarious undercard: Andrew Bayer, Chris Lake, TroyBoi, + moreSAMF2018 0609 215039 4768 DVS

After confirming its new location and official headliners earlier this week, Spring Awakening Music Festival has released the remainder of the lustrous 2019 lineup.

Spring Awakening’s undercard, though there’s hardly anything lowly about it, spans some of the most accomplished names in techno, house, trance, and bass music. Anjuna-adept festival-goers will notice the generous number of names from Above & Beyond‘s hallowed home for all things trance and house music to celebrate the Anjuna-branded stage that will land at SAMF this year along with a menagerie of native talent, from longtime veteran Andrew Bayer to former The M Machine member, Luttrell, who just released his first album with the label’s subsidiary imprint, Anjunadeep. From Spring Awakening’s subterranean bass caverns will spawn Liquid Stranger, Rusko, TroyBoi, G Jones, and more across the sweeping, 60-artist ticket.

Announced earlier this week, Spring Awakening 2019’s headliners GRiZ, REZZ, Martin Garrix, DJ Snake, Zedd, and Illenium will touch down at Hoffman Estate’s Poplar Creek for the festival’s first year at its expansive new location June 7-9.

Tickets to Spring Awakening are available here.
