With a celebration of multiple genres and one-of-a-kind art installations always at the core of NCMF, our growth over the last near-decade has taken us to incredible heights. In 2017, North Coast debuted a brand-new stage, added complimentary yoga sessions each day, and teamed up with the likes of Ava Grey Designs and The Elder Tree to create a space one part Living Art Gallery, another part homage to the history of Chicago street art. 

On the artist front, deadmau5 and Eric Prydz performed a special back-to-back set, Primus bassist Les Claypool sat-in with Ween, while special guests topped off the weekend as The Cool Kids brought out their once-protege Chance The Rapper and Manic Focus surprised the crowd with Pretty Lights. Take a moment to relive last year's installment with theOfficial 2017 Aftermovie.

In 2018, the legacy continues as North Coast Music Festival heads into nine years at Union Park with a promise to assemble a lineup of music and art that will take your breath away. Stay tuned for the 2018 lineup announce, coming soon!
