ARC Music Festival 2023 Guide: Set Times, After Parties and Artist Backstories

The inaugural ARC event introduced a festival encounter that had never before been witnessed by aficionados of Chicago’s house and techno music scene. Its intention was to cultivate a captivating odyssey into the pulsating core of the genre. Participants were skillfully led from the vibrant confines of The Grid stage to the extravagant realm of Elrow from Spain, and then further into the enigmatic realms of Expansions. The outcome manifested as a pervasive urban ambiance that stretched its influence into prominent nocturnal venues. This achievement captured the notice of the industry, leaving those unaware of ARC’s debut yearning for its resurgence. ARC Music Festival 2023 technically stretches 5-days when considering the after parties that start on August 28th and end on September 4th. Hopefully that will be enough…
