Ah, Labor Day, the end of summer. Accordingly, North Coast Music Festival bills itself as "Summer's Last Stand." (Though technically this is not the end of summer festivals, as Riot Fest hits two weeks later.) Curated and run by a band of local club promoters—React Presents, Silver Wrapper, Cold Grums, Kingtello, Metronome Chicago—North Coast arguably delivers the most diverse bill of any Chicago music festival. Hip-hop, jam, EDM and indie acts come together in Union Park for three days, September 4–6, 2015. Later, the party spills over into several afterparties at local dance clubs. The Chemical Brothers, D'Angelo, the Roots, Chromeo, Steve Aoki, Porter Robinson, Portugal. The Man and many more are booked to play.
