Back in December we told you the story of Auris Presents, a new Chicago event company brought together by a configuration of “nearly a dozen promoters, producers and venue owners from across the spectrum of Chicago’s nightlife scene.”

Come Labor Day weekend 2021, Auris and Loud Crowd will spearhead a new music festival taking place in Chicago’s Union Park.

ARC Music Festival was announced today featuring a combination of talent from around the world and some of Chicago’s house music legends and pioneers. Taking place from September 4 to 5, 2021, ARC Music Festival is a multi-day “immersive dance music event” featuring Seth Troxler, The Martinez Brothers, Will Clarke, Nicole Moudaber, Adam Beyer ◻︎ Cirez D, Bob Moses, Eric Prydz, Hot Since 82 and more. Chicago’s DJ Pierre, Derrick Carter, DJ Heather, Gene Farris, Hiroko Yamamura and Steve Gerard are also prominently featured.

Sign-up for pre-sale tickets is available now at; general tickets will go on sale April 15.

In December we wrote this about Auris:

Partners in the initiative include Nick Karounos (owner of Radius and Prysm, partner in Concord Music Hall and former partner in React and co-owner of The Mid) and Stuart Hackley, founder and operator of Loud Crowd and former senior talent buyer for Disco Donnie Presents. Managing Partners in Auris include Chicago nightlife legend John Curley (co-founder of Paradigm Presents, lead programmer at Spybar and promoter, DJ and all around impresario for much of the last three decades) and Joe Quade, founder of BAM Creates. Rounding out the team are Carson Rhoads, Dom Brown, Mike Lang, Garrett Birch and Joe Calderone.
