One of Chicago’s most wholesome festivals is at it again. North Coast Music Festival premiers this year during the first weekend of September at Union Park in Chicago, Illinois. Headliners like Odesza and Rat Pack’s Logic will be taking the Coast Stage. Heavy hitters like Action Bronson and Juicy J are also coming to perform with native and up-and-comer Jamila Woods also making an appearance. Woods previously participated in a talk with Macklemore and other Chicagoan Social Activists about Racism and Systemic Racism held within the city. XXL Freshman of 2014 Ty Dolla $ign will also be taking stage on Saturday with the likes of Logic, Raury, and Ric Wilson.
Taken from their website, “North Coast Music Festival is a collaboration of independent promoters in Chicago. We are React Presents, Silver Wrapper, Cold Grums Productions and Metronome Chicago. With a collective 50 years producing events, we’ve presented everything from small shows to selling out large scale concerts. Some of us specialize in electronic, hip hop, jam band, indie rock and all kinds of genres. With this festival we’ve come together to celebrate the merging of all music and walks of life that enjoy it as much as we do.”
