Heatwave Music Festival

With summer just a few short weeks away once again comes the peak of festival season, and Chicago is diving in head first with Riot Fest, Lollapalooza, and of course Heatwave. The two-day EDM festival’s second year, this time hosted at Northerly Island’s Huntington Bank Pavilion, will feature both new artists and familiar faces on Saturday, June 10th, and Sunday, June 11th. Here is what to expect and how to prepare for this year’s party.

Today Auris Presents, Chicago’s leading force in live music events, has announced the lineup for the second edition of its creative paradise, Heatwave Music Festival. After a successful debut in 2022, Heatwave will return to Chicago this June 10-11 at its new home on the iconic lakefront of Northerly Island to further cement its status as the city’s newest immersive art and music gem, built on a foundation of experiential art and world-class electronic music.

The open air and the grass beneath your feet; the smiling faces at every turn and the crowds cheering at every stage; the energetic glows of the stunning light show behind each performer, the smoke and pyrotechnics, and the deep bass so loud you could feel it in every inch of your body. All of this and more made the first annual Heatwave Music Festival unforgettable.

Festival season is underway here in Chicago and fans of pop art and energizing dance music are in for a treat. The annual Heatwave Festival returns to Douglas Park July 16th and 17th and features a wide variety of performers and artists. It is truly a change of pace from other well-known festivals in Chicago such as Riot Fest and Lollapalooza. With that change of pace comes an eclectic selection of artists to look out for if you're considering dancing your heart out in Douglas Park next weekend.
