Last year React Presents – Midwest’s largest dance music promoter – inaugurated Mamby On The Beach on the shores of Lake Michigan.
The idea was different than the rest of the festivals in their portfolio: rather than focusing on EDM and jam bands, Mamby booked indie, electronica and house artists the likes of Empire of The Sun, James Murphy of LCD Soundsystem, Passion Pit, Art Department, George Fitzgerald and Route 94 and placed them on Oakwood Beach in Chicago’s South Side. For the first time in three years the City of Chicago had another beach festival to look forward to.
This year, the two-day festival will take place July 2nd and 3rd with three large full production stages, and an even bigger lineup to boot. Main Stage headliners include electro-soul artist Chet Faker, underground rap favorites Atmosphere, funky duo Chromeo, the iconic Santigold, experimental pop-rock band Animal Collective as well as other live acts such as Lupe Fiasco and Tycho.
The DJ tent will be just as stacked with talent. Life & Death favorites Tale of Us will be joined by Loco Dice, Seth Troxler and Black Coffee, with Chicago talent representation coming from Derrick Carter, The Black Madonna and Gene Farris.
