ARC Festival is back with a colossal new lineup after making a splash in its inaugural year in 2021. They are, once again, showing fans why Chicago is the birthplace and home of House music with a distinct flock of eclectic, melodic, and heavy-hitter selectors.
Further binding its name to the story of the House genre, ARC’s sophomore year is sure to continue the trend of giving attendees an experience that will envelop their senses, both visually and auditorily.
Some of the mainstage slots are filled by none other than the British powerhouse Carl Cox, the dynamic pairing of Adam Beyer □ Cirez D, songstress of the international techno movement Charlotte De Witte, Motor City icon Carl Craig and UK originator Fatboy Slim.
The focus of ARC has and always will be on illustrating the importance of House to the masses, and its entrenched influence with the music scene as a whole. That is why we have Chicago mainstays like musical genius and fashion icon Honey Dijon ,alongside storied mentor of the city’s sound Derrick Carter, Queen of Chicago house DJ Lady D, Farriswheel’s Gene Farris, Green Velvet of Get Real, Godfather of House music Chip E., fellow longtime veterans Ron Carroll and Mike Dunn plus next generation riser Kryptogram.
