To our SAMF Family,
We are disappointed to announce that we are postponing Spring Awakening Music Festival's 10th Anniversary until Summer 2023.
For over a decade, SAMF has celebrated and showcased performances by some of the best established and emerging EDM talent. Each year, we strive to deliver a festival experience that embodies our fans' passion and love of music. SAMF is grateful for your trust, and we felt the festival was not at the level you come to expect and deserve. We are focusing all our energy on delivering a kick-ass lineup and new festival experiences for 2023.
All 2022 ticket holders will be honored at the 2023 SAMF. Each ticket will maintain its current benefits, in addition to new upgraded benefits if you choose to roll over to 2023. Ticket buyers will receive an email with all the details and the refund request instructions.
We are deeply committed to this wonderful homegrown independent Chicago music festival. We thank our fans, vendors and partners for their loyalty and unwavering support and we can't wait to see you in 2023!
Keep dancing 'tll then!

Why was Spring Awakening Music Festival 2022 postponed?
Each year, we strive to deliver a festival experience that embodies our fan's passion, enthusiasm and love of music. We are profoundly grateful for your trust in us and it is because of that, that we felt the current lineup was not in a place you have come to expect and deserve. Rather than disappoint you, we believe it is best to focus on securing a kick-ass lineup that will make 2023 the best festival experience to date.
I bought my ticket from a friend and now they are not answering my email or they are telling me they won't refund me my money.
Tickets only have one buyer, who is the legal owner of the tickets. For this reason, we can only transfer the refund back to the buyer. Spring Awakening cannot legally transfer back to another individual, even if one of the tickets was personalized to that person. The best remedy is to contact the legal owner of the tickets.
I purchased my ticket with friends in a pack of two or more. Now my friend will not answer me and I'm afraid I will not receive my refund.
Tickets purchased together only have one buyer, who is the legal owner of the tickets. For this reason we can only transfer the refund back to the buyer. Spring Awakening cannot legally transfer back to another individual, even if one of the tickets was personalized to that person. The best remedy is to contact the legal owner of the tickets.
I purchased my ticket a long time ago and now I do not have that credit card or bank account anymore. How will I get my refund?
Due to security reasons, it's not possible to transfer money to another account. Such changes are the responsibility of the credit card company. Fans should contact their old bank to transfer to the new account.
If the funds can not be sent back to the credit card or bank account used at check out, See Tickets customer support will reach out to you for an alternative refund method.
I purchased my ticket with a Visa gift card and I no longer have the card. How will I receive my refund.
Fans should contact the issuing bank, such as Visa to make arrangements. The money will be transferred back to the original card number for legal reasons.
I used multiple credit cards for my payment plans. How will I receive my money back?
The number of cards used won't affect the refund. You will receive a refund for each payment, on the specific card used.
Will the Spring Awakening Music Festival 2023 lineup be available prior to the refund deadline?
We are working on the Spring Awakening Music Festival 2023 lineup and will announce as soon as it is ready.
My friend and I bought two tickets. I want to transfer and she/he wants a refund. Can you do that?
Sorry, the group will need to come to consensus about the order. We can only permit one action per ticket order and cannot split up refund options.
