This past Labor Day weekend, North Coast Music Festival descended upon Chicago’s Union Park for a fifth time with a lineup largely comprised of past performers. Regardless, the festival didn’t disappoint as festivalgoers, willing to take “summer’s last stand,” were treated to three days of incredible music, a lively atmosphere, and beautiful weather. Seriously, they couldn’t have had better luck after every weatherman in a 20-mile radius said it would rain.
By some divine intervention, North Coast’s fifth anniversary prevailed over any soggy forecasts and continued to establish the festival as one of the most diverse and entertaining in the city. Unfortunately, our coverage team was too busy checking out shows to party ’til we fainted with Kid Cudi, but we were still lucky enough to experience 10 moments that we won’t be forgetting anytime soon.
