One of the Chicago-area’s most anticipated annual music festivals has announced its return, following last year’s pandemic postponement.
North Coast Music Festival 2021 — the electronic music, hip-hop and house extravaganza — will take place Sept. 3-5 at SeatGeek Stadium in Bridgeview, it was announced Thursday, along with the lineup for the return to a three-day festival of music and art.
Also new this year, a fourth stage specifically for artist-run record label takeovers.
The lineup headliners include Kaskade and Louis the Child (Friday); GRiZ and Ganja White Night (Saturday); and Zeds Dead and Rezz (Sunday). See the full lineup below.
Experiential/interactive art installations round out the festivities for the Labor Day weekend event.
The festival will adhere to all state and local pandemic protocols in place at the time of the event. However, organizers also stated that full refunds will be issued (or your tickets can be held over to 2022) if the festival cannot take place as scheduled due the pandemic.
“We’re thrilled for the various atmospheres the new stadium campus offers,” Thursday’s statement from festival organizers said. “The Main Stage will be inside the stadium, where fans can dance on the playing field or watch from the elevated grandstands. Another stage will be inside a massive air-conditioned, well ventilated, full-field soccer dome, with two more stages on the seven brand-new surrounding soccer turf fields.”
