North Coast Returns With 2018 Lineup
North Coast Music Festival turns 9 this year, returning to Chicago’s Union Park Labor Day Weekend. Always promising a good time and a diverse lineup, North Coast never fails to deliver. This year is no different. The festival continues to Wow us by bringing rare artists that we all have been dying to see.
Headlining the festival is none other than UK pop group Jamiroquai! They haven’t been to the states in over a decade and North Coast is one of the few stops on their short tour this year. In addition, Axwell ^ Ingrosso heads back to the Windy City to finish out the summer in style. Other headliners include Miguel, Gramatik, DJ Snake, Snails, RL Grime, Barclay Crenshaw, Mura Masa, Yellowclaw and a ton more.
In addition to the awesome lineup, North Coast continues to expand into the Chicago community. This year the festival will debut daily showcases by industry collectives in hip-hop, electronic, and more. Friday’s takeover comes from Aux Chord DJs, Saturday welcomes Lyrical Lemonade, and Sunday sees a reunion set by Midnight Conspiracy and a back-to-back takeover by Chicago’s Most Wanted. Last year, North Coast debuted a brand-new stage, added daily complimentary yoga sessions, a Pop-Up Art Gallery and teamed up with the likes of Ava Grey Designs and The Elder Tree to create a Living Art Gallery, paying homage to the history of Chicago street art.
