Why You Should Attend Chicago’s North Coast Music Festival

The North Coast Music Festival is the last “party in the park” of Chicago’s sweltering summer; a concluding bittersweet farewell to the summer months with a music festival dedicated to music lovers. Scheduled for Labor Day weekend, September 4-September 6, North Coast promises to please with the hottest acts of the year and rising stars from Rock, Hip Hop and Funk, with party-hyping DJ’s.

Featuring hip hop and R&B acts Wale, The Roots, D’Angelo and the Vanguard, the three day festival includes an impressive undercard with some of music’s beloved up and comings, giving bands a huge platform to showcase their skills and talent. The festival, also described as Summer’s Last Stand, creatively includes a “Silent Disco,” a graffiti area or “Living Gallery” presented by Elder Tree.

Not one to stop at the party on festival grounds, North Coast extends the celebration far beyond Chicago’s west side Union Park, with After Parties sprinkled around the city. Hosted by the acts themselves, festival-goers get a up and close look at their favorite artists, partying the night away.
