Tragedy struck right before Axwell Λ Ingrosso’s Spring Awakening appearance in Chicago, forcing the famed act to cancel altogether. They revealed over Twitter that Ingrosso’s car had been broken into and robbed. Among the missing items were Ingrosso’s laptop with all his productions and his laptop, rendering it impossible for him to travel to the USA to fulfill his contractual duties. Axwell stayed behind too as a result.
The Swedish act held a headlining spot on the festival’s main stage on Saturday, June 10, which would marked their first time playing on American soil since the release of their recent EP, More Than You Know. “We’re incredibly sorry to miss Spring Awakening Music Festival and are working to correct this issue before our next USA appearance,” the duo remarked at the end of their announcement. Refunds were issued to those holding passes to their afterparty.
