Labor Day Weekend is almost here, and that means ARC Music Festival in Chicago. As the festival draws near, we are getting the daily lineups and the full roster of afterparties.
These official ARC After Dark Parties will take place at leading venues across Chicago, which will include events at RADIUS, Concord Music Hall, PRYSM, Smartbar, Spybar, Cermak Hall, Primary, and Nᵒ9 with a mix of artists from the festival lineup and additional acts not on the lineup. Tickets are currently available for ARC pass holders.
Highlights include a Detroit Love party at Spybar with Carl Craig and Seth Troxler, Eric Prydz and Adam Beyer at RADIUS, Gorgon City and Azzecca at Cermak Hall, and a Relief x Dirtybird event with Green Velvet and Claude VonStroke at RADIUS.
Additional highlights include a multi-national house affair with Ricardo Villalobos and Derrick Carter at Cermak Hall, Honey Dijon and DJ Heather showcasing Chicago femme royalty at Smartbar, and a Black Book Records event at Music Hall with Cloonee and MIANE.
There will also be an ARC pre-party on the Thursday before the festival with Pan-Pot at Spybar, along with a Yacht Party with Justin Martin on the Monday following the festival.
At the festival, attendees can look forward to a group of back-to-back sets that will take place between Detroit legends Carl Craig and Seth Troxler, married couple Öona Dahl and DJ Three, UK favorites Skream and Eats Everything, and Chicago house acts including Derrick Carter b2b Mark Farina, Gene Farris b2b Mike Dunn, and Hiroko Yamamura b2b DJ Hyperactive.
