The North Coast Music Festival is a music and arts festival featuring folk, rock, hip hop, DJ’s and wide variety of performance and installation artists held annually over Labor Day weekend in Chicago at Union Park. 2016 will be its 7th year and is a collaboration of independent promoters in Chicago.
North Coast’s first festival occurred on September 3–5, 2010 at Union Park in Chicago. The first iteration of the festival received generally positive reviews from the Chicago press including UrChicago which said “this weekend has definitely been one of the highlights of the year.
The talent that was raked in for this festival was among some of the best around. This is definitely a festival to keep an eye on in years to come, they brought all they had to the table in 2010 and I’m sure no one left disappointed.”
