Coasties are all set for the North Coast Music Festival now that promoter React Presents has unveiled the amazing lineup. Taking place this year from September 1-3 again at Chicago‘s Union Park, NCMF is officially branded as “summer’s last stand” in the Windy City, closing out the festival season after Spring Awakening and Lolla.
Presenting a mix of festival hippy jam music and EDM, North Coast is all about classic festival culture, inspired by the ’60s and ’70s. The most impressive headliners for EDM fans is certainly the team-up performance of Deadmau5 and Eric Prydz, a surprise considering the duo was originally set only for European dates. Carnage takes the lead the following night, alongside Don Diablo while Hippie Sabotage, a duo of brothers behind Tove Lo’s hit “Habits (Stay High)”, takes the helm on Sunday.
For fans of hip-hop, Hot 100 favorite Gucci Mane makes an appearance Friday, and alternative rock group Ween appeals to live music fans. Bonobo, a rising star with remixes, has a live set booked for NCMF. If anything, North Coast is all about variety and eclecticism, as evidenced by the 2017 lineup.
Single day tickets and three day passes, both GA and VIP, are on sale now with even layaway plans available. Venue Union Park is surrounded by trees, creating an atmosphere of a forest within a city. Last year was headlined by Zedd, Galantis, and Bassnectar.
