The idea of festival season has changed drastically over the years. What used to be thought of primarily as June-August has been shifted by stockpiles of festivals showing up left and right, and now it's more like April through October. September is like a cool down month, a time to reflect on your biggest summer moments and make some more memories before Fall kicks into gear.
That's where North Coast Music Festival comes into play. At Union Park in Chicago during Labor Day weekend (Sept 4-6), the highly sought after festival will return for three days of electronic music, hip-hop, jam bands, rock, and so much more. The lineup is diverse as ever, something people are looking for more as they head to festivals.
On the electronic tip, it's all about big name artists like The Chemical Brothers, Chromeo, Knife Party, Porter Robinson (Live), The Glitch Mob, and Tycho. Don't forget to check out the smaller artists though, with immediate standouts being Until The Ribbon Breaks, SoySauce, Exmag, Goldfish, Haywyre, Jauz, and Trippy Turtle.
That's just the start of what is truly an insane lineup, and there's still one more mystery headliner to be announced in the future. Tickets are currently on sale, so avoid the FOMO and get your squad together.
