Step out of the sun and experience a daytime beach club like no other as the Mixmag Tent provides nonstop dance fuel all weekend long.
Words from the festival itself, “As dedicated Mamby attendees will remember, the festival is far more than a gathering of diverse musical acts on the beautiful shores of Lake Michigan. Since its inception, the Mamby experience has continued to grow, expanding its roots and incorporating new experiences. Last year, the festival added a fresh collection of unique art installations, beach-friendly games, silent disco sessions, yoga, nutritional and wellness workshops, and various other activities for attendees to explore.” This year, Mamby will once again provide exciting experimental elements for passionate beachgoers to enjoy, with official announcements including the Silent Disco lineup, coming soon!
