There is no doubt that 2014 was an incredible year for The Gathering Group! We are so proud of everything that we have accomplished, and are excited about what 2015 will bring.
The last year has been a blast and we have accomplished a ton. Looking back, we’re proud to have produced some incredible events, starting with our summertime outdoor music festival, Future Sound. Taking place on the South Drive at the Merchandise Mart, the event featured top artists Eric Prydz and St. Lucia, and we were treated to a 3-D show by Morgan Page. With the help of sponsors like Boxed Water, ChicagoMusic.org, Deep Eddy Vodka, Lagunitas Brewing Co., Redbull, and many more, our dedicated team was able showcase world-class talent and transform the South Drive into a full-fledged dance party for 3 days. You can relive the memories and watch the recap video here!
We’re also still feeling the effects of Afterburn, and believe us, it (still) hurts so good. We are grateful to Redmoon Theater for hosting and providing its unique spectacles and talented performers. Dani Deahl and Goldroom were our featured artists, and their amazing sounds kept the party going.
We are thankful for and thrilled about the relationships we’ve built with brilliantly talented artists this year: Calvin Harris, Eric Prydz, Goldroom, Morgan Page, St. Lucia, and Panama Wedding just to name a few. We’ve also gotten to work closely with Dani Deahl, and we’re honored to introduce her at a TedX talk, which focused on empowering female DJs to break the mold in an industry that is heavily dominated by men.
The last year has been a whirlwind, and we don’t plan on slowing down! We’re excited to announce that we are launching two new festival brands. The first of which is Snowstorm – a winter spectacular that will be filled with amazing surprises and music from top artists. We can’t reveal the details quite yet, but make sure you’re following us on Facebook and Twitter, and sign up for our newsletters so you don’t miss out on any exclusive announcements.
Thanks to everyone who has helped along the way – we couldn’t have done it without you. And remember to stay tuned – 2015 will hold some big news and surprises that we can’t wait to share.
Happy New Year!
The Gathering Group Team
