You know things are starting to normalize when music fans are inundated with a flurry of music festival announcements. None have caught our attention quite like Arc Festival has.

Home of House Music? Check. Holiday weekend? Check. Some of dance music’s biggest names? Check, Check, and double Check. We’re talking multiple performances by Eric Prydz under his three aliases, Adam Beyer, The Martinez Brothers, Hot Since 82, Nicole Moudaber, Seth Troxler, Zhu, Cristoph, and so many more. Even an Elrow party for the first time in Chicago which, if you haven’t been, is a treat all on its own.

I personally haven’t been to a music festival since CRSSD Spring 2020 and I’m sure most people reading this haven’t seen live music in at least a year. As I get older, two-day festivals stacked with top-tier talent and complete with after-parties are more my speed. CRSSD has done this really well for years, and events like Splash House have become a must-see for me.

Arc has all the ingredients to make it a spectacular, repeatable event and it’s certainly the talk among my friends right now. The hype is real to get back into clubs and go to festivals and now I have something spectacular to look forward to in a few months. Make sure you grab your tickets ASAP as they’re selling FAST.

See you there!
