North Coast Music Festival 2015
North Coast Music Festival (NCMF) is thrilled to announce the lineup for this year’s festival, which takes place during Labor Day Weekend from Friday, September 4th through Sunday, September 6th. Featuring three consecutive days of hip-hop, jam, indie, rock, R&B, electronic beats, and everything in between, each year North Coast transforms Chicago’s historic Union Park into a massive party for Coasties to indulge in Summer’s Last Stand.
For the 6th annual year, NCMF brings together a more diverse range of genres than ever before, and continues the tradition of pushing emerging artists to the forefront while appealing it’s broad musical scope to an equally diverse crowd. Returning headliners THE CHEMICAL BROTHERS are back this year after closing the inaugural NCMF in 2010. Additional 2015 headliners include R&B star D’ANGELO AND THE VANGUARD, who is riding high off the release of his first album in fourteen years, plus a very special SURPRISE ROCK HEADLINER that will be announced on Tuesday, May 12th.
The eclectic lineup features a wide range of artists including The Roots, Wale, Tycho, Atmosphere, Porter Robinson (Live), The Glitch Mob, Chromeo, Portugal. The Man, Booka Shade, RAC, Nahko & Medicine for the People, supergroup Joe Russo’s Almost Dead, Shpongle (Simon Posford DJ Set), and an exciting performance from New Orleans’ premiere funk band Galactic joined by Macy Gray, plus many more.
