Change is in the air this year for one particular festival, Mamby on The Beach. The 2019 iteration of the event brings us new dates with Mamby now being held at the end of August rather than July and a brand new location up north, Montrose Beach!
Chicago’s only beachside summer music festival will return for its fifth year on Friday, August 23rd and Saturday, August 24th and the beautiful new location, conveniently located on the city’s Northside, will offer additional space to accommodate three stages, beach-friendly games and all-inclusive activities.
This year React Presents is excited to partner with Jam Productions to feature an incredible lineup for the two-day festival, which showcases artist performances that represent a wide variety of musical genres. The lineup and tickets will be released on Monday, June 3rd.
Since its inception, Mamby called Oakwood Beach its home, a prime location boasting scenic coastal views with an unforgettable backdrop of the Chicago skyline. Over the past four years, Mamby has felt fortunate thanks to the endless support from the surrounding Bronzeville community, and continues to support Oakwood Beach through initiatives like the Mamby Movement Beach Cleanup. Now, as the festival continues to grow, React Presents and Jam Productions look towards the future and are excited to find Mamby a new home with a bigger footprint at Montrose Beach. The new location is a 15-minute drive from downtown Chicago and a 5-minute walk from the Redline Wilson stop.
