Celebrating its third year in the global festival circuit, ARC Music Festival makes a splashy return to the birthplace of house music for three days of hypnotic revelry. Our beloved Union Park will host the event over Labor Day Weekend from September 1-3

Catch internationally renowned artists playing house, techno, and beyond all weekend. Among these artists is ARC mainstay Eric Prydz, Chicago icons (and house music architects) Derrick Carter, and DJ Lady D, as well as the homecoming of John Summit for his first festival headline set in Chicago!

Additional highlights include Grammy Award-winning South African artist Black Coffee, South Korea’s fashionable globetrotter Peggy Gou, energetic party leader FISHER, and the return of the UK’s legendary Fatboy Slim.

Check out the full lineup below, and be on the lookout for special back-to-back sets throughout the weekend—Carlita b2b Chloé Caillet is a must!


Additionally, world-class talent aside, festival-goers can expect an immersive journey throughout their weekend at ARC. From art installations and curated production elements to four unique, immersive stage environments—there’ll be a vibe for everyone to catch. (I know I won’t miss the Elrow takeover, known for its psychedelic atmosphere and signature hijinx.)

Three-day passes are currently available in GA, VIP, and VIP Plus. Stay tuned for afterparty announcements across Auris and ARC partner venues (RADIUS, Cermak Hall, PRYSM, and Concord Music Hall).
