Last weekend Chicago’s Montrose Beach, located on the massive Lake Michigan, played host to the second year of Wavefront Music Festival. There were a few reasons the MMIBTY team couldn’t have been more excited for July 5-7 to arrive:
1.) Only one of us lives in Chicago while the rest of us either hadn’t been or we had visited and fallen in love with the city only to have returned home at a later time
2.) Wavefront is a three-day music festival that is literally on the beach, making it like no other festival in America
3.) It’s one of the few festivals that books big name acts (such as Rusko, Diplo, and Justice) while also focusing on more underground names in Seth Troxler, Jamie Jones/Damian Lazarus, and dOP to name a few. [Check out dOP's live set HERE]
The key takeaway from our experience with almost 75,000 dance music fans was this festival was so much fun and truly a fantastic time – maybe the best dance music festival in the U.S. But since we had a handful of writers in attendance I’m going to let you hear about it from each one’s perspective.
