The summer of 2012 will go down as a monumental season for the Chicago EDM scene given that it’s the inaugural year of two new electronic music festivals. Chicago is no stranger to the House music scene at it has played a pivotal role in the development of the sound since the early 1980′s. Doubly, Chicago is very familiar with music festivals as Wavefront will be one of 5 music festivals in the city this summer. Four of the five festivals have a large EDM presence, giving Wavefront a lot of competition to compete with, but we’re confident that the lineup and the beach setting will make it an unforgettable experience.
If you have been to Spybar in Chicago, you are familiar with the top notch talent that was expected for Chicago’s first beach, house music festival. Spybar, 4 Headed Productions, and Vasta & Associates have come together as a proverbial “Dream Team” to take this event from an idea all the way to a reality for us this summer. We believe that this is a festival that is not to be missed. Between a Chicago Summer, Lake Michigan, and a club feel with the sand between your toes, what more can you ask for? Be sure to check out the artists and more details about Wavefront: Beachside Music Festival after the break!
