UPTOWN — Uptown is going electronic this weekend.
The Wavefront Music Festival scheduled to hit Montrose Beach Friday to Sunday returns for a second year of what has quickly become one of the city's most anticipated electronic dance music fests.
Electronic heavyweights Diplo, Fatboy Slim and Rusko are three of the better-known acts slated to have festival-goers grooving in the sand this Independence Day weekend — but they are just a few of more than 100 acts expected on four stages at Wavefront 2013.
Each day of the three-day festival will be capped by a fireworks show, according to the festival website.
Tickets are $79.99 for a one-day general admission ticket or $219.99 for a three-day pass. Headliners include Rusko, Fatboy Slim, and Laura Jones.

Wavefront also coincides with the Windy City Ribfest in Uptown Friday to Sunday, and is just one of an array of Independence Day weekend events offered across the city.
