Chicago dance music fans have another reason to rejoice for this upcoming festival season — Spring Awakening has just announced the first wave of its lineup for the three-day June festival. Well, not exactly. Earlier today, Clubtix accidentally uploaded an image which revealed the “first wave” of artists that have been booked for the three day festival that is set to take place from June 14th-16th.

The first wave of performers include: Calvin Harris, Bassnectar, Wolfgang Gartner, Zedd, Nicky Romero, Porter Robinson, NERVO, among many others (see image above for full details). Early bird tickets have been sold out for a while now, but Spring Awakening will announce their full lineup and 2nd round of tickets shortly.

Draft Punk signs new contract with Sony/Columbia for Fourth Album!


According to second largest regional newspaper in France, Le ParisienDaft Punk have found a new home on Sony subsidiary, Columbia, leaving EMI for their upcoming fourth studio album. The information was reportedly told by GuyManuel to his friends at a Kavinsky album release party last week. Following in the footsteps of Depeche Mode who also left EMI for a US-based label, Daft Punk is currently in the process of finalizing its contract with Sony/Columbia, slating the upcoming album’s worldwide release for sometime this spring. Aside from scoring Disney’s Tron, this marks their first official release since 2005′s Human After All but other than their collaboration with Nile Rodgers of Chic, little else is known about the album from the two enigmatic producers.

At least we can finally put one Daft Punk rumor to rest, the duo’s next album is coming in 2013, and we couldn’t be more excited.
