My favorite Chicago festival has a new date and location, GET READY! React Presents and Jam Productions are thrilled to announce the initial artist lineup for Mamby On The Beach 2019! Chicago’s only beachside summer music festival will return for its fifth year on Friday, August 23rd and Saturday, August 24th at Montrose Beach. The beautiful new location, conveniently located on the city’s North Side, will offer additional space to accommodate three stages, beach-friendly games, and all-inclusive activities.
This year, Mamby On The Beach will be bigger than ever: the fifth anniversary of the festival, which began by featuring musical acts from an assortment of genres, has grown to represent a more diverse and inclusive lineup than ever before.
The lineup boasts a strong female presence and proudly features members of the LGBTQ community, which reflects the festival’s strong support of gender equality and LGBTQ-friendly environment for attendees, performers and queer allies alike. As always, Mamby welcomes and celebrates all genders and orientations and will partner with Our Music My Body to ensure a safe and respectful environment for all fans while they enjoy a weekend’s worth of amazing entertainment and activities.
This year’s headliners are BROCKHAMPTON, TROYE SIVAN, ZHU, SYLVAN ESSO, VIRTUAL SELF, and FLYING LOTUS 3D. Supporting acts include QUINN XCII, PHANTOGRAM, SANTIGOLD, JUSTIN MARTIN, DJ SEINFELD, SUMMER WALKER, A R I Z O N A, SOFI TUKKER, WASHED OUT (DJ SET), NAO, WAJATTA (comprised of Reggie Watts and John Tejada), and more. Additional artists will be announced very soon.
Mamby’s famed More The Music series will also return with all-inclusive activities including silent disco yoga sessions, nutritional and wellness workshops, beach-friendly games, live painting, tarot card and palm readings, meticulous art installations, and makeover options from the Braid Bar, Henna and Body Art Domes. A schedule of More Than Music activities will be announced closer to the festival.
For fest-goers who want to take a dip in the lake, a barefoot stroll through the sand, or a musical romp alongside the festival’s exhilarated fans, Mamby will once again provide the perfect, sun-soaked getaway. Keep your eyes peeled for more announcements about the fest and some more artists to drop in the lineup! I cannot wait, see you on the beach!
