The jamming-dancing-rapping North Coast Music Festival (August 30-September 1, 2013) announced their first wave of confirmed artists. Representing hip-hop at the top of the bill are the Wu-Tang Clan, Nas, and Mac Miller. Wu-Tang is scheduled to perform 36 Chambers in its entirety.
On the jammier side of things, The Disco Biscuits, Lotus, and Big Gigantic have all been tapped. With DJs Afrojack and Claude Vonstroke mixed in, this is shaping up to be the typical diverse lineup that North Coast is known for.
North Coast takes place in Chicago’s Union Park. Tickets are on sale now for around $160 — that’s an early bird price. Expect them to jump up soon.
