North Coast is coming up faster than we can believe here at TFV so I’ve compiled a list of the top 10 acts to see at North Coast. Of course, all of the artists will be amazing, but I’ve got some must sees on my list and I’ll share why! BTW- Tickets are still available! Last year, they sold out so don’t wait too long!
Alesso is on the list because I have been listening to Alesso since 2013 and I feel like he isn’t on many lineups anymore. I can’t even remember the last time I saw him live, so I feel like he should definitely be on my list! Some of my favorite songs of all time are by Alesso.
- Gigantic NGHTMRE
First off, this is a real treat! Big Gigantic and NGHTMRE mixed together? That in itself is a treat that I haven’t experienced yet. I’ve seen both artists separately, but never together, so I will be at that set!
- Lane 8
One word: TRANCE. I’m a huge fan of trance and I think it isn’t often included on lineups. This gives me a chance to listen to some of my favorite music and dance. I also saw Lane 8 at Global Dance last year and really enjoyed it!
I got the pleasure of seeing Dabin live in Minnesota a few years ago and it was one of the best sets I’ve ever seen. I know Savannah (who is also attending) wrote an article about our experience located HERE. See why Dabin makes her feel alive and you’ll understand why Dabin is on my must-see list!
- Black Tiger Sex Machine
While they have an odd name, BTSM is one of my favorite artists. I’ve seen them so many times and each time, they always bring a unique set that I can’t get enough of. Plus, their visuals are usually FIRE!
My reasoning for this one is similar to my reasoning for Alesso- I feel like Zomboy hasn’t been touring lately! I think the last time I saw this powerhouse was at Dancefestopia… in 2014? 2015? Either way, it’s been years and I’ve been listening since 2013. Fun fact, Zomboy opened at my first EDM show I ever saw.
- Zeds Dead
Killa killa Zeds Dead! This DJ duo kill it and bring great tunes from their label, Deadbeats. I personally listen to Deadbeats Radio weekly so I’m ready for a great vibe and a great time!
- Alison Wonderland
Similar to Zeds Dead, Radio Wonderland is one of my weekly traditions. Every week, Alison brings some fire sets that I look forward to! Plus, she’s been on a hiatus because she’s been pregnant, so it’ll be great to see her back in action by this point. She just had her baby recently!
Have you seen Wreckno live? He’s always up to some crazy shenanigans and he always has a BLAST at his performances. I’ve never been able to see him… but I think the photo below shows why Wreckno is a force to be reckoned with.
I haven’t had the opportunity to see Drinkurwater live yet and I’m psyched to enjoy this up and coming artist as he brings the dubstep. And with a slew of new releases, I know this is going to be one epic set!
Anyway, now there are SET TIMES so check those out here! They’re in the following order- Friday, Saturday, and Sunday.
