As people contemplate their end of season festivities, I'd like to share a few reasons why those still searching for plans should at least give thought to joining the thousands of us who will descend upon the majestic Union Park located in Chicago, IL for the fifth anniversary celebration of North Coast Music Festival; summers official last stand. Having graced this 3-day blowout event since its inception as an avid concert goer to now being a part of the official media outlet has been something of a dream come true.

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 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?
The Festival Atmosphere
Anyone true Chicagoan will talk your ear off at great lengths on why the city is the perfect place to reside or visit during the blissful summer months. With many flocking into the city over Labor Day weekend to attend the North Coast, it provides a wonderful atmosphere of good vibrations between many walks of life to come together and share a common love of live music with friends new and old. Memorable moments are to be created at random within the enchanted setting and will linger in the minds and hearts of all heading into fall / winter.

Some of this is mixed like a peak-time set with all levels set to 11, while a lot of it goes deeper than usual; more ethereal, more surreal, more experimental.
Kind of like a sunrise set, in some strange Other World where the sunlight melts your mind. :)

Bassnectar drops off his latest single “Take You Down” and the Special Edit at that. It is another stab at the melodic side of bass music while managing to even work in some trap elements. He ventures into some foreign territory while managing to stay true to what you love from him. As Lorin puts it:
Take You Down was put together as a summertime jam… something deep and lush and euphoric. I started it while I was on vacation, and the general theme is basically falling in love and that slow-motion feeling you get when you plunge backwards into something overwhelming, but never hit the ground.”
This song will be getting released as a 5 track single on September 24th.
