Mamby on the Beach: It’s new and you’ll love it.
Back and better, Mamby on the Beach returns this weekend for its second year on the shores of Oakwood Beach. In a family of festivals if Lolla is your Mom, Riot Fest your brooding hermit of a brother, Spring Awakening your hyper little sister, then Mamby is your mellow best friend. Not part of the family at all. In fact, a welcome retreat when things get too chaotic at home.
On a personal note, no festival better feeds my appetite for the dreamy, emotional, electronic beats I’ve loved since Sonique was a thing in high school, or Kenna shortly after. The line-up this year is strong — seriously. Big names like Santigold, up-and-coming artists like Gallant, and local legend Lupe Fiasco add to a long list that encompasses hip-hop, pop, dance, electronica, and house.
If you’re new to Mamby or have no clue who half the artists even are, we’ve done the leg-work for you. Here’s a quick guide.
