Who would have thought that pop-art and dance music went so well together?
Auris Presents, which has established itself as Chicago’s premier organizer of live music events, has just announced the inaugural Heatwave Music Festival. Coming to Douglass Park July 16-17, Heatwave aims to be a fully immersive pop art-inspired event, soundtracked by some of dance music’s leading producers and DJs.
Experiential art sits at the center of the Heatwave experience, which is sure to see attendees get lost in immersive installations and art zones by a wide range of visual artists and creatives to announce. Heatwave aims to tip its hat to legendary pop-art moments, like Warhol’s Campbell’s soup cans and Lichtenstein crying girlcurating a vibrant experience that is meant to be explored.

Although Heatwave’s imaginative use of installations and art is bound to become a major attraction for the Chicago community, the Class A programming brings together a jaw-dropping dance music experience.

Other performers include Audien, Dion Timmer, G Jones, GG Magree, Oliver Heldens, Two Feet, Yellow Claw and many more.
