Willy Joy at Spring Awakening( June 1, 2012 )
Sure, technically, it'll still be spring June 16, but there is no mistaking that this is the electronic music event of the summer. Rave, techno, club, house and dubstep will all be represented by the superstars of the genre ¿ so DJ/producer Willy Joy is a natural choice for the opener. He's ready to break away from his local-boy-done-good rep and prove he has what it takes to make a name nationally.
June 16 at Soldier Field, 1410 S. Museum Campus Drive. $119.99 for a two-day pass; clubtix.com or springawakeningfestival.com
