North Coast Music Festival Prepares for Massive Year, Lines Up Huge Afterparties
The summer may be winding down, but Chicago's festival season is still in full swing. As Labor Day approaches, everyone is gearing up for summer’s last stand at North Coast Music Festival. NCMF is operated by Silver Wrapper , Cold Grums Productions, Metronome Chicago, and festival veterans React Presents, the company behind other major Midwest festivals such as Spring Awakening, Summer Set, and the younger Mamby on the Beach.
While still invested heavily in the electronic scene, North Coast sets itself apart by offering a wider range of music options to attendees. This year you’ll get the chance to see plenty of electronic heavy hitters, including Porter Robinson, Knife Party, and even the legendary Chemical Brothers will be making a return to Chicago for the event. On the other front, massive jam bands such as Widespread Panic and The Disco Biscuits will also be assuming headlining time slots.
Can’t handle a full day? React has got your back. Venues all around Chicago will be hosting official North Coast after parties following each day’s festivities. The music options are just as varied as the lineup and feature everything from Green Velvet to The Main Squeeze. Future Rock will even be playing a special set as Daft Rock, their Daft Punk cover band! You can check out the full list of after parties and grab tickets by clicking here.
