I am so glad Mamby on the Beach exists. The music lineup is diverse, and you get a beautiful lakefront view. It's a little out of the way, but it's totally worth it. 


I go to almost every music festival in Chicago during the Summer (Lolla, North Coast, Mamby etc.) and Mamby is one of the very best. Last year was the first of Mamby and I assume this festival is going to be a Chicago staple for years to come. It's nice because it's a very different vibe from Lollapalooza and this coming year (2016,) the campgrounds are extending and they're adding another stage. The festival is ON the beach but you can't go in the water unless you are VIP which makes little sense to me (but I'm sure it's for security reasons.) The restricted water access is the only reason they're missing a star because otherwise, this is the one Chicago event festival lovers can't miss.
