Unmissable Sets at ARC Music Festival

Labor Day Weekend is coming and that means lots of festivals! One of our favorite Labor Day events has been ARC Music Festival in Chicago. Coming up on its 3rd year, the festival is practically sold out and the hype is off the charts. If you’re headed to the windy city this weekend we rounded up the sets you absolutely must see if you’re gonna be there. If you still gotta snag a ticket check the link here.


You better get to Union Park by 3pm so you can see the master class in progressive house put on by none other than Cristoph going b2b with Franky Wah. If you’re digging the chill vibes then stick around for Tinlicker. You can’t go wrong between Adam Beyer or James Hype depending on your style. However you must close with Eric Prydz HOLO if you haven’t seen it before. This is only the 2nd time the HOLO show is happening at an outdoor non-covered stage, and it’s a real delight.


Definitely make sure you’re back by 4pm to see Eli Brown tear up the mainstage with his track, ‘Diamonds on my Mind’ that you’ll probably hear several times throughout the weekend. Hot Since 82 is always a killer time, and if you’re in a housey mood then head on over to the elrow tent for Lee Foss b2b Gene Farris. Saturday has 3 fire closing sets and honestly, it’s gonna be hard to pick one. You got John Summit, Ilario Alicante b2b Dennis Cruz or Fisher B2B Loco Dice B2B Nic Fanciulli. You literally can’t go wrong.


Sunday is melodic day and that means kicking things off with Kevin de Vries at 4pm. Stick around for Ame b2b Dixon and sing your best NaNaNa with Peggy Gou at 630. You have to close out with Tale of Us since this is their very first ARC Music Festival performance, but probably not their last.
