North Coast Is Bigger And Better Than Ever!

Are you ready for the second phase of artists for North Coast Music Festival? The festival is back and better than ever! The lineup was already stacked but now, it has just unveiled its stacked Phase 2 lineup for its 2024 edition, taking place Friday, August 30 – September 1, 2024 at Chicagoland’s SeatGeek Stadium Campus. We’re looking forward to all of these additions as they sure do bring the heat!

The Phase 2 lineup features industry titans who will be making their North Coast debuts, including headliners such as GRAMMY-nominated house duo SIDEPIECE at the Shipyard StageNight Bass label head AC Slater (as a part of Tchami’s Confession label takeover), LA-based house producer Dr. Fresch at the Shipyard Stage, and hard-hitting bass virtuoso Crankdat at the Vega Stage.

The festival has also added a set from North Coast veteran/bitbird label boss San Holo, who is slated to perform at the bass-fueled Vega Stage on Sunday. I’m super excited for that one!

Additionally, North Coast will welcome a bevy of talented support acts to their Phase 2 lineup, such as German multi-instrumentalist BUNT. headlining the Fire Pit Stage, experimental bass don Jon Casey (as a part of the Brownies & Lemonade takeover), American singer/songwriter and producer Anabel Englund, experimental hip-hop wizard Bad Snacks, Canadian bass maestro Mythm, and downtempo bass DJ Supertask.

These Phase 2 additions join the festival’s already impressive roster which includes heavy-hitting headliners such as Above & BeyondAlan WalkerChase & StatusDab the Sky (Dabin and Said The Sky), DJ Diesel (aka NBA legend Shaquille O’Neil), ILLENIUMISOKNOCK (ISOxo & Knock2), LSZEE (collaborative project of bass masters CloZee & LSDREAM), Seven LionsSLANDERSubtronicsSullivan KingNO REDEMPTION (the special collaborative set from Tchami & Malaa), and Two Friends

In addition to the new lineup additions, North Coast will also maintain its commitment to showcasing local emerging talent by adding 50+ names from Chicago and the greater Chicago area. This is awesome because you never know what you will discover when you check out the latest up and coming talent!

Since relocating to the spacious SeatGeek Stadium in 2021 to host nearly 90,000 attendees annually, North Coast has expanded its experimental art installation programming, and the 2024 edition will mark the return of popular additions. There is so much to do and experience at this festivals!

First off, we’ve got The Chlll Dome! I personally wasn’t able to attend because the line was too long, but I hear this is the best place to take a break and chill out. Not only is it air conditioned- there are also major artists playing some of the best tunes around and yoga to begin your day. The full soccer field dome will feature lasers, cushions, and air-conditioning complemented by DJs playing downtempo, lofi, and deep house.

And if you thought North Coast didn’t bring the heat already, you are looking at some pure FIRE with Incendia’s Fire Pit Stage, featuring striking geometric domes that shoot fire from their tops and contain ceilings with fire crawling above the fans. It brings the HEAT!

North Coast will also feature the beloved NCMF Yacht Club – a boat placed in the General Admission crowd area of The Shipyard Stage, complete with a rooftop viewing deck and funky interior rooms free for all attendees to explore.

If you didn’t get a chance to check out Club Coast, make sure you spend some time looking for this secret speakeasy. I’m hoping they change the location this year so we can spend some time exploring for this fun addition to the festival. Festival goers will be prompted to find Club Coast with daily location clues and passwords given through the North Coast app. We made some really good friends last year!

Additionally, North Coast fans enjoyed the new addition of The Ferris Wheel, which will return in 2024 to elevate the overall festival experience for attendees. VIP tickets will include (1) free ride for the weekend, and Platinum VIP will include (1) free ride per day. 

North Coast continues its celebrated legacy by providing all Coasties with world-class talent, the latest performances from the biggest in the business, art installations, tons of shopping, and so much more. It is one of the Midwest’s best festivals around!

Fans can choose from a variety of ticketing options including three-day GA, VIP, or Platinum tickets and single-day GA, VIP, or Platinum tickets. North Coast also offers payment plan options as well. All tickets are available for purchase via
