Gabriel Wiesen and James Nuccio, owners of Beavers Coffee & Donuts are busting out their party hats for:

Summer music festivals Me and Jim are huge fans of electronic dance music, and music festivals in general, going back to our days as drummers in high school, and, more recently, our previous jobs in nightlife hospitality. We have traveled the country attending electronic dance music festivals like Ultra in Miami, Electric Zoo in New York City, and Electric Daisy Carnival in Las Vegas, and are very excited about some upcoming festivals that have been organized in Chicago. There are a ton of artists that we love, but we're probably most looking forward to seeing Laidback Luke at the Spring Awakening Festival June 17. Laidback Luke, in addition to being an amazing producer and DJ, also puts on a touring themed party called Super You and Me where everyone is encouraged to dress up as superheroes and dance to his music in a giant costume party. We also cannot wait to see Erick Morillo at Wavefront Beachside Music Festival June 30 and Chicago native Kaskade at Lollapalooza August 5.
