North Coast Festival, Chicago, IllinoisMORE MAIN STAGE AND LOCAL ARTISTS ADDED TO NORTH COAST LINE UP

Any doubts about North Coast’s stronger lineup in year two will certainly be laid to rest with today’s announcement of nine additional main stage acts, and a couple dozen big-name Chicago artists.  Low-end monger BASSNECTAR joins big beat icon FATBOY SLIM and Elephant 6 standouts OF MONTREAL atop the second wave of North Coast acts announced for the fest’s second incarnation.

Also included in today’s additions is Diplo-collab MAJOR LAZER, trance legend ATB, soul-revivalists THE BUDOS BAND, JAMES ZABIELA, Austin-based live electro duo AUTO BODY and local roots rockers GREAT DIVIDE.

Representing the city the festival calls home is a host of talent has headlined dates themselves at home and around the country.  CALIFORNIA WIVES, ascending every hype chart the Internet has to offer, joins TEAM BAYSIDE HIGH, hosts of “America’s Best Party,” MIDNIGHT CONSPIRACY, LOYAL DIVIDE, BBU (Bin Laden Blowin’ Up), ZEBO, THE COOP, PROB CAUSE and WYLLYS at the top of North Coast’s local offerings.  With Van Ghost already on the bill, an even bigger Chicago artist still to be announced, and roughly 20 more Chicago names added today, the Windy City is undoubtedly better represented at NCMF than any of it’s fellow summer festivals.

Plus, North Coast Festival is bringing some of the city’s foremost charities to the festival stage.  THE ARTS OF LIFE BAND, an edgy collaboration of disabled and non-disabled members of Chicago’s charitable Arts of Life community, and a band representing the INTONATION MUSIC WORKSHOP, a Chicago Public Schools after-school program that empowers kids to become rock stars, both have been added to the NCMF bill.

Festival organizers will follow this announcement with two more rounds of artists in the coming weeks.

But, organizers are also happy to announce that we have secured DE LA SOUL as their replacement on the bill. Although organizers realize this will not appease all Cypress Hill fans, we are extremely excited to have this groundbreaking group as a part of our festival!
