chicago winter skylineEverybody knows Chicago winters are no joke. With average temperatures regularly below freezing and a well-earned title of The Windy City, Chicago is a metropolis whose winter parties are best enjoyed indoors. This year, though, The Gathering Group, a self-described “revolutionary live event production company” plans to heat things up with Snowstorm, an event they tout as “the first-ever winter electronic music and arts festival in Chicago” at the city’s Navy Pier on Saturday, March 7th.

A themed one-day event that will require its partygoers to rock all-white outfits “to celebrate the cold season and the hottest beats,” Snowstorm will feature Moby as the headliner with support from Trippy Turtle, The Hood Internet, ASTR, and a bunch of locals.

The full line-up is yet to be announced, but you can sign up for notifications here. With the Spring Awakening Music Festival just releasing a line-up including Hardwell, Tiesto, Dusky, Duke Dumont, and Jamie Jones, Chicago has a hot winter and spring ahead of it.

Here’s a clip from the Snowstorm press release:

This year, we’re melting the ice and bringing you out of your cold-weather hibernation with the city’s first annual winter music festival: Snowstorm. Join us as we celebrate surviving another Midwest winter with some of the hottest artists in electronic music, featuring Moby, Trippy Turtle, The Hood Internet and ASTR at Chicago’s iconic Navy Pier. Snowstorm will be a fully immersive festival experience with sights and sounds that bring the heat. The first major music and arts based winter gathering of its kind, Snowstorm is the must-attend event of the season.
