The birthplace of house music is gearing up for a new festival arriving on its turf this fall. ARC Music Festival is set to land in Chicago's Union Park, highlighting the many flavors of house and techno that have since originated from around the world.
Seth Troxler, Nicole Moudaber, Hot Since 82, Meduza, Camelphat, FISHER, and many more will take to the stages of this multi-day event, which promises a distinctly Chicago experience complete with local art and culinary delights. Channel Tres (DJ Set), DJ Holographic, Lee Foss, Layton Giordani, Toni Varga, and TSHA will also perform.
The debut edition promises a couple of unique "firsts," landing ARC on the shortlist of festivals to watch. This will be the first festival in which Eric Prydz works triple time, offering a headlining performance as his namesake and another alongside Adam Beyer as Cirez D, before playing a DJ set as Pryda at a closing party at Radius Chicago.
