North Coast Music Festival is always known as the last bang of festival season, and this year is their 5th year anniversary! We’ve been supporting them since year one, and it’s amazing to see how far they’ve come. Check out the day one photos I snapped of Bass Nectar, Action Bronson, W&W, Keys N Krates, Washed Out, and Prob Cause. More photos and reviews to follow.
This year’s North Coast Music Festival lineup of headliners include…
Friday – Bassnectar & Alesso
Saturday – Kid Cudi, STS9, & Nicky Romero
Sunday – Snoop Dogg, Dada Life, Zeds Dead
I can’t wait to see Kid Cudi! We caught a secret, very intimate show at SXSW in Austin, TX a couple years back and it was unbelievable. Three others I’m looking to see are Washed Out, Little Dragon, and Adventure Club (“Rise & Fall” feat. Krewella being a personal fav.). As a Portlandia enthusiast and fan of chillwave tunes it is my mission to catch Washed Out play at NCMF, especially since I missed him play while at MusicFestNW in Portland last year. Little Dragon is on my radar as well. They played a couple shows at SXSW this year; we happened to be checking out a show next door one of the nights and the line to check out their set was at least an hour +, not even guaranteed entry. Just as with most festival goers discovering new music and up-and-coming artists is at the top of the list of reasons I love festivals and of course exploring the magical festival grounds.
North Coast Music Festival’s 5th year running, T minus 10 days! We’ll be in attendance this year, will you? If you haven’t purchased tickets already no worries you can score free tickets and NCMF swag! Looks like all you have to do is check out their official social media: Twitter, Facebook, Instagram to enter in daily giveaways until this Friday. Good luck all!
