ARC Music Festival is ready to pay homage to the house and techno roots of Chicago with a gigantic 2023 lineup of historic staples and talented newcomers.

Now in its third year and after expanding to three days in 2022, ARC Music Festival continues to push forward the sound that was culturally curated in Chicago’s underground scene by highlighting global tastemakers and innovators.

Headliners for the 2023 event include Eric Prydz’s spectacularly designed HOLO, chart-topping icon John Summit, Afterlife label heads Tale Of Us, and the Funk Soul Brother himself, Fatboy Slim. 

Chicago’s history is also front and center with local legends Derrick Carter, Gene Farris, DJ Heather, and DJ Lady D alongside Detroit pioneers Carl Craig, Moodymann, and DJ Minx.

But the back-to-backs are also incredibly special with Cristoph B2B Franky Wah, Fisher B2B Loco Dice B2B Nic Fanciulli, Carlita B2B Chloé Caillet, and Mall Grab B2B KETTAMA, fresh off their absolutely insane surprise B2B at CRSSD Spring 2023.

As a special treat, Spanish party hosts elrow will once again return as ARC Music Festival for their only festival stage takeover in the USA this year.
