North Coast Music Festival returns for its 13th annual lineup. Hosted at Chicagoland’s SeatGeek Stadium Campus, Chicago’s premiere electronic festival will land on Labor Day weekend, Friday, September 1 through Sunday, September 3, 2023.
The lineup boasts everything from trance to house to dubstep. With six stages going strong from 2 to 12 pm (CT), there are plenty of acts to get hyped about. There are obviously exciting international acts like multi-platinum Marshmello, Canadian power duo Zed’s Dead, and Grammy winner Flume headlining. Local representation is a showcase of Chicago’s own Deep State Disco, Morgan Alexis, Cofresi, and more.
Other acts to keep your eyes on are Black Tiger Sex Machine, BLOND:ISH (in their Gold Coast debut), Duke Dumont, and MK. The list goes on. Whether you’re a techno head or want to get lost in trance, there’s more than a little here for you.
Beyond the music, NCMF is a full-bodied, heart-forward event. There’s a community here. Festival goers come from all over the world to dress wild, get sweaty, make some new friends, and feel the music dripping out of their pores.
The festival takes place on a newly-renovated campus. Replete with eye-catching art installations, food and beverage offerings to keep you on your feet til the last act, and an enormous air-conditioned “Chill Dome” for some R&R in between sets, Coasties have everything they need for an unforgettable weekend all in one gorgeous location.
Full weekend tickets are on sale now as well as single-day ticket options in General Admission, VIP, and Platinum tiers. Get the group thread going, and get your squad locked in. The North Coast Music Festival is an experience not to be missed.
