In addition to Phase 1 and Phase 2 artists performing on SAMF’s two Main Stages, the three-day festival will also feature two Branded Stage takeovers each day. On Friday, June 9, the first two Branded Stages will be hosted by acclaimed music publication Dancing Astronaut and React’s simmering house event series, Body Language. Headlining D anci ng Astronaut’ s takeover will be one of dance music’s most celebrated artists Benny Benassi. Alongside him, Sander van Doorn, Bingo Players, Audien and Party Favor are all set to unleash from the stage. Meanwhile, fans of the Body Language series will get down to a diverse assortment of artists with a headlining performance by Thomas Jack, the saxophone-playing champion of tropical house, along with Route 94, Felix Da Housecat, Billy Kenny and Gene Farris.

Saturday, June 10 will see SAMF’s Branded Stages transformed by Above & Beyond’s smooth and sultry deep house imprint Anjunadeep and the return of React’s veteran Trance Arena series, featuring its own euphoric atmosphere. The Anjunadeep stage will feature a headlining guest spot by RÜFÜS DU SOL, one of the hottest indie dance groups out of Australia. Joining RÜFÜS will be Anjunadeep labelmates Lane 8, Moon Boots, Jody Wisternoff and Yotto. Leading the Trance Arena stage will be legendary Grammy Award-Winning DJ, producer and musician, Paul van Dyk. Alongside him, Paul Oakenfold, Andrew Rayel and MaRLo will mesmerize fans with nonstop melodic thrills throughout the day. The Trance Arena will also be graced by a very special guest appearance, which will be revealed in the coming weeks.

Topping off the weekend on Sunday, June 11 will be hosted takeovers from React’s longstanding Bass Kitchen series, known for its unmistakably brutal bass carnage, and Sunday School, a longstanding series known for its “festival within a festival” atmosphere. Headlining the Bass Kitchen’s takeover will be an undisputed member of the Mount Rushmore of modern dubstep, Snails, backed by a staggering roster of additional talent including Kill The Noise, Hucci, Spag Heddy and Barely Alive. Over on the Sunday School stage, the action will be headlined by famed North London duo Gorgon City, as they return to Chicago for a raucous set for all to enjoy.

Featuring a backdrop of Chicago’s iconic skyline and Lake Michigan’s shimmering waters, the Beach Stage will play host to some of the most defining indie, electronic and hip hop artists of the era. Leading the charge will be the kings of psychedelic rock MGMT along with chart-topping alt pop band WALK THE MOON and returning to Mamby for an extraordinary live set are legendary beatmakers CUT COPY.

In support, fiery performances from RAURY, STRFKR, MUNA, RAVYN LENAE, GAVIN TUREK and more will keep the inclusive beachside vibes in full swing.

Meanwhile, on the lush grasses of the Park Stage, attendees are invited to kick back and groove to a diverse group of crossover acts from all corners of the hip hop and electronic gamuts. Standout live acts include joyful pop pioneers MISTERWIVES, twisted beat scientist FLYING LOTUS, indie-pop quintet LOCAL NATIVES, Norwegian disco idol TODD TERJE AND THE OLSENS and esteemed multi-instrumentalist virtuoso THUNDERCAT, fresh off the release of his critically acclaimed album Drunk. The Park Stage will also see performances by the voice of Chicago’s West Side SABA, MUTEMATH, SANGO, PHOEBE RYAN, SIR THE BAPTIST (based in Mamby’s home of Bronzeville) and more.

Mamby’s dedicated electronic stage, curated for a second consecutive year by dance industry leader Mixmag, is primed to host hypnotizing rhythms and underground beats for two days straight. Headlining the Mixmag Tent is historic techno trailblazer GREEN VELVET celebrating the 25 year anniversary of his Chicago-founded label Relief Records, best known for releasing legendary tracks such as the Percolator (1992) and Flash (1995). In honor of the celebration, Green Velvet helped curate the lineup with support from JUSTIN MARTIN, MK, LEE FOSS, fellow Relief recording artist LATMUN and more. Future house producer TCHAMI will be taking over headlining duties on Saturday, along with support by Belgian funk-centered powerhouse THE MAGICIAN, SAMF FELDTJUSTIN JAY, WILL CLARKE, DJ HEATHER and more. Step out of the sun and experience a daytime beach club like no other as the Mixmag Tent provides nonstop dance fuel all weekend long.

As dedicated Mamby attendees will remember, the festival is far more than a gathering of diverse musical acts on the beautiful shores of Lake Michigan. Since its inception, the Mamby experience has continued to grow, expanding its roots and incorporating new experiences. Last year, the festival added a fresh collection of unique art installations, beach-friendly games, silent disco sessions, yoga, nutritional and wellness workshops, and various other activities for attendees to explore. This year, Mamby will once again provide exciting experimental elements for passionate beachgoers to enjoy, with official announcements including the Silent Disco lineup, coming soon!


For those with an open mind and a curious heart, Mamby On The Beach is an opportunity to escape the monotony of our daily routines and explore the most precious parts of our collective being. As Mamby brethren, united around common bonds of freedom, expression and beauty, we invite you to bring the memories made here wherever you go.
