Spring Awakening Festival 2019

React Presents is setting up five unique stages across 27 acres of land with interactive art installations and will feature notable artists like DJ Snake, Excision, Galantis, ZEDD, DJ Martin Garrix, GRiz, Benny Benassi, Alan Walker, What So Not and many more. They even have carnival rides set up!

This is an amazing event to attend if you are someone who is not aware of the electronic music genre. Electronic genre is music created using electronic instruments.

The most fascinating thing about this genre is its ability to combine other genres like hip-hop, rock, jazz, blues and many others to produce completely new forms of music. For example, the fusion of jazz with electronic genre creates nu jazz, hip hop with electronic creates trip-hop, and pop with electronic music creates electropop respectively.

Don’t simply take my word for it because the best way to understand this genre is through listening!
