Trance Arena Concert Series Returns to Chicago February 24, 2017

Since Trance events are so scarce  in Chicago it felt  necessary to post about the upcoming Trance Arena show at Concord Music Hall. React Presents have been sprinkling in Trance artists and Curated Stages into their lineups over the past few years, giving the Chicago Trance Family more options besides soundbar for their beloved genre.

With legend ATB headlining as well as Orjan Nilsen, and Ben Nicky as the top card for the February 24, 2017 Concord Music Hall show, it has the makings of a night full of #feels.
