North Coast Music Festival (NCMF) releases the official recap video for the 5th annual celebration of Summer’s Last Stand!
In 2014, NCMF expanded the festivals grounds and welcomed more Coasties than ever. Saturday and Sunday completely sold out, with over 58,000 people in attendance over the course of the weekend. The festival welcomed artists and fans from all over the world.
North Coast Music Festival was originally founded in 2010 by a group of independent promoters who set out to produce a festival for all the underserved genres in the city. Between them, they brought together emerging artists from hip-hop, indie, jam bands, and dance music to create one of Chicago’s most unique festivals. Some of the these artists from previous years are now headlining festivals across the world.
„We’re humbled by the support here in our fifth year anniversary,“ says Pat Grumley, one of the founders of the festival. Adds Michael Berg, „When we first conceptualized this festival, we had no way to knowing it would be so warmly received by the city of Chicago, the artists and their respective teams like it has… but far and away the most rewarding and inspiring thing to our team is the support of our fans, who we call ‚the coasties!'“
