Zedd has been named both a Rolling Stone and MTV “Artist to Watch” and has performed at top festivals including Coachella, Lollapalooza and Electric Zoo. He has also collaborated with top artists including Justin Bieber and Ariana Grande.  

Marshmello’s official biography is simple: “I just want to make good music…that doesn’t require you knowing who I am.” The anonymous DJ has become and EDM powerhouse, releasing his debut album “Joytime” in 2016 featuring popular tracks such as “Keep it Mello” and “Want U 2.” In May of 2016, he released his hit single “Alone,” which racked up more than 100 million YouTube views in three months while charting on the Billboard Hot 100. 

RL Grime released “Grapes EP” in 2012 and his follow up EP “High Beams” in 2013. The latter reached #1 on the iTunes Electronic Chart. His first full-length album, “Void,” was released in 2014 and includes collaborations with Big Sean and Boys Noize. 

Action Bronson’s debut album “Mr. Wonderful” was released in 2015. The rapper has toured with artists such as Eminem, Kendrick Lamar and J Cole and hosted a food web series for his label, VICE Records. 

Canadian EDM duo Adventure Club released their debut album Red//Blue in 2016. Their previous work has been featured on MTV shows such as Eye Candy and Teen Wolf. The duo has toured across North America, playing sets at festivals such as EDC and Ultra.   

The Trap House are a Chicago based duo that formed in 2012. What started as basement party with 30 people has grown into the “Most Ratchet Party” in Chicago ever since. 

Ric Flair® is a celebrity and professional wrestler. Also known as the “Nature Boy®," Flair is among the most famous and well-known wrestlers in the world, and has been one of wrestling's biggest stars since the late 1970s. Flair was often popular with the crowd due to his in-ring antics, including rule breaking (earning him the distinction of being "the dirtiest player in the game"), his cocky interview style, strutting and his shouting of "WOOOOO!™" The "WOOOOO!" yell has since become a tribute to Flair, and is often shouted by the crowd whenever they see Ric or when another wrestler performs one of Flair's signature moves.   A Facebook and Twitter favorite, YouTube sensation, and whose name returns almost 4 million Google hits in under .2 seconds, Ric Flair® is an international icon.

IMS has once again partnered with React Presents, the leading electronic concert and festival promoter in the Midwest, to promote the event. React Presents is a full service club, concert and festival promotion company based in Chicago.
