[FONT=arial]WAVEFRONT MUSIC FESTIVAL, A THREE-DAY ELECTRONIC DANCE MUSIC FESTIVAL
JULY 5, 6 & 7, 2013
AT CHICAGO’S MONTROSE BEACH
INCLUDING ‘CHICAGO HERITAGE OF HOUSE STAGE’
Wavefront Music Festival is excited to reveal its Second Wave artist lineup, following the First Wave lineup released last month. Bringing the world’s top electronic dance music artists to the Windy City’s first and only beachfront festival, Wavefront Music Festival returns for its second year to the shores of Lake Michigan at Chicago’s beautiful Montrose Beach on Friday, July 5, Saturday, July 6 and Sunday, July 7, 2013.
From The Warehouse to Wavefront, the Chicago-born producers of Wavefront are proud to announce HOUSE COMES HOME: Chicago Heritage of House Stage. The new Chicago Heritage of House Stage will feature the forefathers of house music: Frankie Knuckles, Derrick Carter, Mark Farina, Gene Farris, Jamie Principle, Ralphi Rosario (Original Hot Mix 5 member), Teri Bristol & Psycho Bitch (Crobar) and Mike Serafini (Gramaphone Records).
“I am truly excited to be a part of the Wavefront Music Festival,” says Chicago house music originator Frankie Knuckles.“From the beginning of this whole ‘House Music’ movement at our little club [The Warehouse] on S. Jefferson St. back in 1977, I couldn’t imagine that that little old good time would turn into such a global phenomenon. For better than 25 years I’ve circled the globe and everywhere I go I leave a little piece of Chicago behind (musically). And now, not only does the world recognize Chicago as a viable entity when it comes to ‘House Music’ but the City of Chicago fully embraces, supports and recognizes the movement I’m so proud to be a part of. Welcome to The Wavefront Music Festival!”
The Chicago Heritage of House Stage furthers Wavefront’s mission to showcase the historic roots and broad dynamic range of dance music with a wide array of the globe’s premiere musical tastemakers as well as the most cutting-edge artists of the moment.
The second wave lineup also includes Subliminal Records boss Erick Morillo, acclaimed hit-maker Fatboy Slim, DFA duoHoly Ghost! playing live, former LCD Soundsystem members James Murphy, Pat Mahoney and Nancy Whang playing DJ sets, French house influencer Jacques Lu Cont, underground icon Lee Burridge curating his ‘All Day I Dream’ stage, and many more. Wavefront will feature artists on four separate stages, with each evening concluding with a spectacular fireworks display over Lake Michigan.
