ARC Music Festival is back again for its second year after a successful debut in 2021, and Auris Presents has another massive slate of afterparties planned.
Returning to Union Park in Chicago after launching on Labor Day Weekend last year, ARC Music Festival 2022 is just a few weeks away. The house and techno festival is shaping up to be a worthy sequel to event’s debut in 2021.
ARC Music Festival is expanding from two to three days and will take place September 2-4, 2022. We’re looking forward to a weekend full of afterparties to extend the dancing well past the festival’s end time of 10 PM.
Tickets to ARC After Dark afterparties are on sale now and are only available ARC Music Festival ticketholders.
ARC Music Festival managed to book a wide variety of artists within nearly all subgenres of house and techno.
The lineup is sure to cater to even the most well-versed dance music fan. You’ll be able to catch ARC afters at some of the city’s biggest venues such as Radius and Concord Music Hall as well as its most established clubs like Spybar and Smartbar.
Starting off the ARC After Dark series is a sold-out party with Berlin-based techno duo Pan-Pot at the legendary Spybar on Thursday night. Traversing techno, house, and everything in between, it will be a perfect way to kick off the weekend with a hard-hitting set in an intimate venue.
Continuing through the nights of the festival you’ll find a lineup with some of the biggest names in dance music like Boris Brejcha, Eric Prydz, Adam Beyer, and Ricardo Villalobos. There will also be parties hosted by Relief x Dirtybird, Black Book Records, and Detroit Love.
Paying homage to your roots is an important part of dance music culture, and Auris Presents has done so appropriately in the birthplace of house music.
You can catch hometown heroes Derrick Carter, Honey Dijon, Mike Dunn, Mark Farina, and Green Velvet to get your proper Chicago house music fix. Rounding out an eclectic mix of afters are also some artists on the progressive side of house like Ben Bohmer, Nora En Pure, and Oona Dahl.
If you feel like extending your festival weekend even further, Justin Martin will be playing a yacht party aboard the Anita Dee on Monday. Auris also just announced a closing party with Kyle Walker and Wax Motif at Prysm Nightclub.
With a lineup of shows from Thursday night to Tuesday morning, ARC Music Festival is sure to be a weekend to remember. Tickets to the festival are available now and nearly sold out.
