cool, wicking shirts that don't feel wet?

I'm looking for a shirt that has all three of these: (1) feels cool when I'm overheated and (2) made of wicking material that dries quickly and (3) feels dry to the touch even when wet. Polyester and other synthetic cycling jerseys are cool to wear and wicking, but feel wet. Thin merino knits will wick moisture and feel dry even when wet, but I find them very warm.

The third requirement, which I know sounds a bit odd, is because this is to wear during a rather active social dance where other people have to put their arms around me sometimes.
In case anyone suggests cotton T-shirts and changing when they soak through, that would be inconvenient because I sometimes go to festivals where that strategy would require me to pack twenty shirts for the weekend.
