North Coast Music Festival bills itself as "Summer's Last Stand," but that is not technically true. The Riot Fest music festival heads outside for its annual celebration on September 15–17, 2017. The festival will return to Douglas Park (conveniently located near one of the city's best breweries) for the third consecutive year. Whether you prefer punk rock, indie bands or hip-hop, you'll probably find something worth checking out on the extensive lineup.
