It might be a bit of a stretch to crown a new ‘midwest festival king’ since Lollapalooza has quickly become one of the biggest shows out there, but North Coast has a lineup that should satisfy a range of EDM listeners. Pretty Lights, Axwell, Steve Angello, Steve Aoki, Excision, Alesso, Mord Fustang are some of the announced names in the first wave. The festival takes place over Labor Day weekend, August 31st to September 2nd, which is also the same dates as Electric Zoo. Tickets for the three days are only $110 for general admission and $350 for VIP. If you can’t make it to New York, Chicago seems like the next best option — until Vegas puts out a Labor Day Weekend schedule that is.
