The goal of Mamby is to reflect the unparalleled experience of Chicago in the summer and preserve the history of Chicago as the home of house music. Mamby curates established and rising live performances from artists in the indie-dance music world to best represent the summertime vibes of Chicago. Mamby focuses on legendary artists who are still pushing boundaries and representing Chicago’s own house music. Emerging artists from house and techno recognize the influence Chicago has had on their music, and Mamby takes pride in shining a light on these artists for years to come.
