ARC Music Festival will have you dancing deep into the night with Gorgon City, Boris Brejcha, and more during their ARC After Dark events!


There’s less than a month left before house and techno lovers gather together at Union Park in Chicago, IL, for the return of ARC Music Festival! There will be no shortage of fun from September 2-4 as attendees groove under the summer sun, their bodies controlled by the faithful rhythms of house and techno. But, since ARC runs from 2pm-10pm daily, many might crave the wild late-night call of the lights and lasers. This is where ARC After Dark comes in.

Speckled throughout nine venues in the Windy City, ARC After Dark invites you to keep the party alive until your feet tell you they’ve had enough! But, with the phenomenal lineup the festival’s organizers just delivered, your feet will have to promise to behave. In fact, you’d be advised to bust out your best dancing shoes because, this year, ARC steps up their game with a plethora of events to choose from! From large venues like Radius to intimate club spaces like Primary, ARC After Dark has a spot for you.

But, to make any space come to life, there needs to be talent, and oh boy, did they come correct! Artists like Boris Brejcha, Ben Böhmer, Vintage Culture, and Joseph Capriati have been tasked to keep the energy pumping long after the festival gates close. In addition, there are label nights bringing in double headliners like Relief x Dirtybird featuring Green Velvet and Claude VonStroke, as well as Blackbook Records featuring Cloonee and Miane.

But wait, there’s more! On Thursday, September 1, get ready for a pre-party you won’t ever forget, with Pan-Pot bringing their beats to Skybar. And if you aren’t quite ready to pack your bags and go home after a weekend of unbridled fun, then climb aboard a yacht party on Monday, September 5, with Justin Martin.

ARC Music Festival 2022 pass holders will have access to tickets on Friday, August 5, so check your emails for the ticketing code on Thursday. You’re not going to want to sleep on these because they will sell out. Grab your festival passes if you haven’t already, and continue on for the official ARC After Dark lineup!
