In 2017, Spring Awakening debuted brand-new stage designs and expanded its footprint across the park. Once again, the two main stages – appropriately named Solstice and Equinox – stood as homebase for the event’s biggest names and performances. The Solstice Stage hosted headlining performances by Marshmello, Martin Garrix, Diplo, Alesso, Afrojack and more, while Excision, GRiZ, Galantis, Datsik, Galantis, ZHU and more held it down on the Equinox Stage.
A variety of electronic music genres were showcased at the two tented stages with branded takeovers by Anjunadeep, Sunday School, Dancing Astronaut, Body Language, Bass Kitchen, and Trance Arena – which featured a surprise daytime set by Armin Van Buuren! This was the first time in Spring Awakening history where a headliner performed multiple sets in one weekend.
Today we invite fans to relive the spectacle and thrill of Spring Awakening with the premier of the 2017 Official Aftermovie. Featuring a complete and inclusive look at the festival’s shining moments and unforgettable performances, the aftermovie is sure to help attendees ride out the upcoming months in anticipation of SAMF 2018.
