There are a bunch of legends playing Mamby. Royksopp and Felix Da Housecat to name a couple. They have been thrilling crowds since the early 2000s so make sure you go check them out. There's so much house and indie on this bill, it's a hipster's dream lineup (don't worry, we're hipsters, too--embrace it).

Everyone loves the beach. Now imagine a music festival with all your favorites artists playing sets by the water with sand under your feet. Add a couple drinks to the mix and you can't get much better than that.
Mamby on the Beach makes your dreams come true. Located at the beautiful Oakwood Beach in Chicago, IL on July 11th and 12th. You'll be treated with sets from Empire of the Sun, Passion Pit, James Murphy (formerly of LCD Soundsystem and that weird Tim Heidecker movie), Cashmere Cat, Cut Copy and Com Truise. So bring your dancing shoes, some sunblock and your dancing shoes. Or flip-flops. Fuck it--don't worry about shoes.
Legendary Chicago promoters React Presents are pulling out all the stops for the inaugural Mamby. At the height of summer, a day at the beach sounds pretty good to us.
If you live in the Illinois or the Midwest don't hesitate on Mamby on the Beach! 2 Day Passes are $99, not too bad for two days full of music lounging on the beach.
