Mamby on the Beach is back, and bigger than ever in 2016! The festival features top talent throughout the 4th of July weekend on Oakwood Beach in Chicago. On top of the music, there will be many more attractions for all attendees – and if you are lucky enough to be a VIP guest, you will have access to Lake Michigan!

Mamby is taking food seriously, with many vendors on-site – you are guaranteed a selection from the best high-end options that Chicago has to offer. It has never been a better time to be hungry at a festival on the beach! You can check out the full vendor list here: Munchies at Mamby


Mamby is about much more than just incredible music and food. This year you will be able to check out a selection of art-installations, beach-friendly games, nutrictional workshops and more!

For those looking to beat the heat and test out their aim, the premiere addition of a daily Beach Battle Royale Water Fight will be the perfect activity. Each day, between 6 and 7 p.m. in the space between Stage 1 and 2, water balloons and water guns will be provided for an epic battle in the summer sun. You can check out the full list of activities Mamby has to offer here: More than music at Mamby

“We’re entering peak time where these newly popular boutique festivals are
defining a new era of the music festival.”  – MixMag

“A beachfront festival where people can live out their romanticized
‘weekend in Ibiza’ fantasies.” – Chicagoist

“Mamby takes the lead of other dance-focused city fests by mixing DJs with synth-loving bands,
and DJ sets from people who play in synth-loving bands.”  – THUMP/ Vice

“Three stages provided fuel for the party with sounds ranging from the deeply melodic and sometimes dreamy to the glam-rocked and slightly bizarre – with a healthy dose of four-on-the-floor
Chicago house beats stuffed in all the right places.”  — Consequence of Sound
