Chicago's Wavefront Music Festival (July 5, 6, & 7) might not have as much hype as some of it’s bigger festival siblings, but it’s hands down one of our favourites of the year. The festival is held on Chicago’s famed Montrose Beach, boasts more than 100 artists performing on 4 stages, and caps each day off with firework displays over Chicago's incomparable lakefront. What really makes this festival special, beyond the epic location, is one of the best pound for pound lineups in the world — this year Diplo, Dubfire, Hot Natured (Live), Justice, Maya Jane Coles, Nicolas Jaar, Seth Troxler, and many more will all share the lake-view stage. We'll be covering the entirety of the festival, so be sure to check back here for awesome goodies and exclusive features.
In the leadup to the festival, Wavefront has hosted an epic DJ invitational to give two deserving producers the chance to play a once in a lifetime set at the festival. Four producers have already been selected to enter into a DJ battle at Castle nightclub on Friday May, 24th where the top two performances will win a spot in the lineup.
As part of our emerging artists series we’re giving one of the runners up one last chance to make it into the final as part of a Last Chance Round. Starting today until Sunday, May 19th at 11:59PM, you can help one of these artists' track rank up the chart for one last chance to get into the final and round out the top five.
As an added bonus, the artists will all be included in our emerging artist series and our coverage on the festival, with the winner being featured. So make sure to check out these artists and cast your vote below.
