Get Back to North Coast!

North Coast Music Fest returns to Union Park


Oh, weary festival-going people, you thought you were done. Boy, were you wrong. There’s still plenty of steam in those booty-shaking sessions and North Coast Music Fest is going to help you keep moving! Set for Labor Day weekend, North Coast lands in Union Park Sept. 2-4 once again with its eclectic mix of artists. Coming along with headliners Odesza, Bassnectar, Zedd, Umphrey’s McGee, Logic and Grouplove are an assortment of great acts like Matt & Kim, Galantis, Juicy J, Sleigh Bells, Jamila Woods and the Claypool Lennon Delirium.

Ranging from EDM and other electronic music to hip-hop, alt-rock and all-things jam, North Coast is another intimate festival and people who love it, really love it. Why? Since it’s held over Labor Day weekend, it’s a last hurrah for many and they like to blow it out. And because it’s located so close to Fulton Market, there are plenty of bars and restaurants to hit afterward … unless you’re planning to go to some after shows (and there are plenty of those, too). General admission and VIP tickets range between $55 and $279, whether you’re looking for single day or 3-day passes. And yes, they are still available.
