North Coast Music Festival’s 5th Anniversary Lineup
Chicago has always had a larger-than-life music scene, and the festivals that call it home clearly reflect that. Even without the possibility of camping, the attendance at every block party, street festival, and concert make it obvious that Chicago loves music. It’s a diverse city that craves everything from hip-hop to electro. North Coast Music Festival started 5 years ago, and it has brought the best of the best from an array of genres to bring the city’s music lovers together. Known for bringing the best of hip-hop, jam, and electronic music to the area, this year’s celebration seems to be no different. The initial lineup has been announced, and Chicagoland’s music lovers can continue to rejoice in the beauty of its diversity.
Held in Union Park on August 29-31st, North Coast’s 5th year brings the one, the only, Snoop Dogg to the stage. Hip-hop lovers young and old can get down with that, regardless of where they’re from. Bass heads have no excuse not to see Bassnectar this year, for he’s added yet another festival to his tour this summer. If Bassnectar is a little too much for some, STS9 is there to keep everyone chill but grooving. Kid Cudi will be making an appearance this year as well, and that’ll help some to pursue the happiness of festival season. Dada Life is scheduled to bring the bananas and champagne to the party, and so many more have yet to be announced.
For its 5th year, North Coast is also rearranging the park and stages with an attempt to create better traffic throughout the park. They’re expanding the grounds, and revamping their 21+ VIP experience. Check out the official North Coast Announcement Video below! Tickets are on sale on Clubtix.com.
