Weekend Shots!

Looking for some live music in Chicago this weekend? We’ve got you covered. Check out this weekend’s featured show along with a more extensive weekend list below!

NORTH COAST MUSIC FESTIVAL at Union Park, 8/31 – 9/2

Well, it’s that time of the year again. It’s time for “Summer’s Last Stand” otherwise known as the North Coast Music Festival. Taking over Union Park for the holiday weekend, North Coast is known for bringing electronica, hip-hop, rock, and dance music together for one massive festival. This year brings us perhaps the most ambitious outing to date with the addition of another stage and a largely expanded “Silent Disco” with 50 artists broadcasting into a sea of headphones.

The impressive lineup includes headliners Pretty Lights, Girl Talk, STS9, and other top name musicians like Big Boi, Paul Oakenfold, Yelwolf, along with one of my personal favorites, The Rapture. Head over to North Coast’s official site for the full lineup and festival schedule. Unfortunately, Sunday is completely sold out, but you can still pick up single day tickets for Friday and Saturday online.

If the festival scene isn’t your thing, you can still catch some of North Coast’s performers at the official after-shows throughout the city. Check out the weekend list below for details.
