Who would have thought pop-art and dance music were such a great match?

Auris Presents, which has established itself as Chicago’s premier live music events organizer, has just announced the debut edition of Heatwave Music Festival. Coming to Douglass Park July 16-17, Heatwave has set out to be a fully immersive, pop-art-inspired event, soundtracked by some of dance music’s leading producers and DJs.

Experiential art presents itself at the center of Heatwave’s experience, which is bound to see attendees lose themselves in immersive installations and art areas by a huge lineup of visual artists and creatives to be announced. Heatwave aims to tip its hat to legendary moments in pop-art, such as Warhol’s Campbell Soup Cans and Lichtenstein’s Crying Girl, curating a vibrant experience that is meant to be explored.
