The 2023 ARC Music Festival Lineup Gets A Boost With Phase 2 Additions

ARC Music Festival in Chicago has announced over 20 artists for its 2023 phase 2 lineup.

Taking place from September 1-3, at Union Park, the house and techno festival, hosted in the birthplace of house music, has added the likes of  Dax J, Cassy, Shimza, Sara Landry, Kevin Knapp, Iglesias, and a live set by David Castellani to the roster.

Additionally, local Chicago favorites Terry Hunter, Mike Dunn, and legendary group Phuture are now on the bill as well. The lineup is rounded out by rising acts Eskuche, Tara Brooks, and regional support acts.

The new artists come after an already star-studded cast of talent was set to bring the house and techno heat to ARC. Headliners include returning favorites Eric Prydz, Adam Beyer, Tale Of Us, and John Summit.

Chicago icons such as Derrick Carter, Gene Farris, and Collette will also be performing alongside techno legends Carl Craig and Moodymann. Other notable names on the bill include Black Coffee, Peggy Gou, Fisher, and more. 

ARC’s curated production elements and art will guide house and techno fans on an immersive journey through four stages, including the outrageous Elrow stage takeover.

With decades of event experience and curation, the Auris Presents team will lead these efforts and offer intimate afterparties at various partner venues as well. More info on that coming soon.

Check out the full list of phase 2 additions below. Tickets for ARC Music Festival are currently available for purchase. Follow this link to secure your spot.

A battle with epilepsy could not stop me from finding the rave community or pursuing my passion to write. I was a journalism major at my college writing about sports when my condition took me out of my classes and stuck me in my home to focus on bills and get healthy. Once I got my seizures under control through medication I decided to face my fear of crowds and lasers in order to finally experience house music in festival fashion at Day Trip 2021. I quickly learned that I could continue to rave and manage my condition simultaneously. Then a raver was born! I love house and techno the most, which ironically are the genres that even brought my parents together. The dance music culture and community has connected me with the opportunity to write about my passion, the best of friends, a lover, and good and bad experiences that continue to grow me as a person. I'm based in Southern California let's catch a set!
