Mamby on the Beach, a lakeside festival reincarnated from a weekly Chicago party in the mid-2000s that celebrated a unified energy, stemming from the city it was born with artists like Green Velvet/Cajmere, Derrick Carter, and many more. In 2015, React Presents breathes new life into this energy, combined with the unmatched summer time vibes of Chicago, to host the new annual two-day festival, Mamby on the Beach.
Headliners include modern trailblazers EMPIRE OF THE SUN and PASSION PIT, who are coming off the highly-anticipated release of their third album, Kindred. Additional support from bands and live acts like the legendary Röyksopp, indie-electro tastemakers Phantogram, as well as Robert DeLong, Com Truise, Tanlines, and No Regular Play, showcase a wide spectrum of artists who incorporate live instrumentation into their performances and continue to bridge the gap between genre boundaries. Other artists contributing live performances are Classixx and Goldroom, plus DJ sets by indie icons James Murphy of LCD Soundsystem and Cut Copy.
