North Coast Music Festival bills itself as Summer's Last Stand, but that is not technically true. For the fifth summer, the Riot Fest music festival heads outside for its annual celebration (now in its eleventh year) September 11–13, 2015. This year, the festival leaves Humboldt Park and takes up residence in Douglas Park. In short time, Riot Fest has overtaken Pitchfork Music Festival for the title of second biggest gig in town and it's starting to give Lollapalooza a run for its money. In 2014, the Cure, the Flaming Lips, Weezer, Jane's Addiction, the National topped the lineup. Who will headline in 2015? Stay tuned. In the meanwhile, check out pictures of the crowd and the bands.
