React Presents and new partner Jam Productions announced on Thursday that Mamby will move to Montrose Beach (4400 N.

The annual fest is a showcase for indie, hip-hop, soul, electronica, dance music and more.

In past years, artists including Common, Jamila Woods, Cupcakke and Cold War Kids have performed at the popular summer music festival.
