The Mamby on the Beach 2018 lineup brings indie rock, hip-hop and electronic acts to Chicago's lakefront

Mamby on the Beach 2017

Over the past three years, Mamby on the Beach has proved to be a worthy addition to Chicago's summer music festival circuit, taking place at Oakwood Beach in Bronzeville. Organized by the same folks behind festivals like North Coast and Spring Awakening, the lineup brings indie, hip-hop and electronic acts to a lakefront party on June 23 and 24.

While Mamby on the Beach was founded as an electronic music festival, the 2018 lineup is dominated by hip-hop and rock acts. Headlining acts include local rapper Common and rising hip-hop artist Russ as well as a slew of indie-rock veterans, such as Grizzly Bear, Spoon and Cold War Kids. Elsewhere on the bill, you'll find some of Chicago's best homegrown talents, such as Jamila Woods, Joseph Chilliams, Cupcakke, Towkio, Kami and Whethan.

Take a look at the full lineup below and start tracking down a swimsuit you can dance in.
