The very thought of summer coming to an end is one we have trouble believing yet still have a few more top level festivals to keep us in high spirits.

The Location

The ease of getting to North Coast is unparalleled to many other festival of its size that we've experienced firsthand. Located close to all of Chicago's major highways and offering an overabundance of public transportation options gives the Near West Side venue of high accessibility for all. With over 25,000 people expected to be congregating in the Union Park each day, you will easily be able connect with fellow concert-goers as you make your way to and from the grounds each day.

The Music

The greatness of the lineup is the real reason why this festival has become renowned by many as the perfect end of summer's escape. There's music for everyone to witness and enjoy! With Bassnectar and his mainstage heavy bass hitters, Snoop Dogg & Kid Cudi bringing the true hip-hop vibes, and a new looking STS9 as the events main headliners, the lineup features an equally impressive spread of acts ranging from top producers & DJs including bass music assassins Zeds Dead, electro soul / saxophone specialist GRiZ, dubstep / electro sensations Adventure Club, and electro house's finest fleet of talent Dada Life, Alesso, Wolfgang Gartner, Showtek, Nicky Romero, W&W to the amazing indie bands Little Dragon, Future Island, Wild Belle, Dr. Dog, as well as hip-hop styles from the likes of Action Bronson, Riff Raff and Chicago locals ProbCause and Saba plus over 50 more acts over a three day period with a guaranteed national holiday / recovery day afterwards! What more could you ask for?
