However, this year you can expect to see world famous headliners like deadmau5, Gucci Mane, Tipper, plus a list of over 70 other rappers, jam bands, DJ’s and everything in between. North Coast is also a home to many unique merchandise and food vendors that are primarily from the surrounding areas and are representative of the unique taste and culture of Chicagoland people. North Coast is held at Union Park, and is easily accessible through the CTA, VIA Train line or the VIA #9 bus. If you’re traveling from out of town, a list of directions dependent on Highways is listed on the official North Coast website.
