Sometimes, use of the word “hipster” is a compliment. And in this case, it’s a huge compliment.
One day after we released the disappointing news that Spring Awakening is switching locations once again, we’re happy to announce that the lineup for Mamby on the Beach 2016 has officially been released.
In case you didn’t read our review/recap of Mamby last year, here’s what we had to say about Chicago’s newest addition to the music festival circuit:
It Was A Hell Of A Debut For Mamby On The Beach
“The least you can say about Mamby on the Beach: It’s fun as hell.
The underground lineup was a treat for informed Chicago festival-goers, and you can lay your ass on the beach whenever you want. Where most festivals give you muddy shoes and an aching back, Mamby gave us a little sunburn and a lot of sand in our shoes.
Despite the minimal distance between the ‘Main Stage’ and ‘The Tent,’ the noise from Mamby’s two big stages didn’t overlap. Once you entered The Tent all you could hear was the music. On the other side of the beach, shows at the Main Stage came with a water view and a pretty clear shot of the Chicago skyline. Wherever you were Saturday, there were memorable performances on both stages.” – THESIXTHIRTY.com
After a successful inaugural year in 2015, React Presents released a like-minded lineup for 2016. It includes a grocery list of big indie-electronic names, highlighted by Chet Faker, Milky Chance, and Atmosphere.
Additional live acts include Chromeo, Thomas Jack, Lupe Fiasco, Santigold, Animal Collective, Tycho, K. Flay, and many more. So yeah, prepare to get Mamby’d as shit on June 2nd and 3rd.
