Sliding Into North Coast For One Day

North Coast recently dropped an EPIC lineup for the 2024 edition. Chicagoland’s premier electronic music festival is once again galvanizing fans from all corners of the dance floor by unveiling daily stage lineups and single-day tickets. If you can’t make it the whole weekend, no big deal, just pick your favorite day!

The 14th installment of North Coast will take place from Friday, August 30 – Sunday, September 1, 2024, returning to the festival’s beloved home of SeatGeek Stadium in Bridgeview, Illinois for the fourth year in a row. We’ve personally gone the past few years and had a lot of fun.

North Coast will kick off on Friday, August 30 with a bevy of heavyweight headliners soundtracking The Stadium Stage, including DJ Diesel (aka NBA legend Shaquille O’Neil)Sullivan King, and Subtronics on closing duties.  The Stadium Stage will also feature additional performances from Boogie TNetskyLevel Up, and Dogma. (Personal favorite!)

Friday will also see Above & Beyond make their highly-anticipated North Coast debut on The Vega Stage, following high-octane sets from DeorroACRAZELaszewoJames Kennedy, and more.  

On Saturday, August 31, melodic bass titans ILLENIUMSeven Lions, and Dab The Sky (Dabin b2b Said The Sky) will storm The Stadium Stage, preceded by performances from support acts like ARMNHMRALLEYCVTSherm, and J Willi.

The Vega Stage’s Saturday billing will be anchored by a closing performance from CloZee & LSDREAM’s collaborative project LSZEE, the perfect commencement to a bombastic day of bass sets from acts like G JonesDeathpactTape BRavenscoonSIPPY, and more.

On Sunday, September 1, Two Friends and Alan Walker will round out North Coast’s marathon weekend with boisterous headlining sets on The Stadium Stage. Ahead of the closers, The Stadium Stage will also showcase sets from floor-filling selectors like Disco LinesHYO (Hyoyeon Kim of Girls Generation), and Covex.

Sunday’s roster of talent on The Vega Stage will be helmed by a smashing headlining set from SLANDER, prefaced by hypnotizing performances from WooliHamdiBlack Carl!, and an unannounced act. 

Last year, North Coast debuted the new stage The Shipyard which proved to be a crowd-favorite among attendees. The 2024 edition will feature two curated stage takeovers from Tchami’s Confession label and Brownies & Lemonade on Sunday. The Shipyard’s Friday lineup is yet to be fully revealed but is slated to feature Ship Wrek.

Tchami and Malaa’s NO REDEMPTION will headline the Confession label takeover on Saturday following performances from MokskiBIJOUCapozzi, and more.

Brownies & Lemonade will host headliners ISOKNOCK (ISOxo b2b Knock2, special guest Chase & Status, as well as HedexLevityNaveAireloosh, and more to be announced.

North Coast relocated to the recently-renovated SeatGeek Stadium Campus in 2021, which was a welcome change. Since then has hosted three widely successful editions hosting nearly 90,000 attendees per year. It’s a great time!

The introduction of the spacious venue expanded North Coast’s experimental art installation programming (see Savannah’s post from last year), and the 2024 edition will mark the return of popular additions such as The Chill Dome – a full soccer field dome with lasers, cushions, and air-conditioning complemented by DJs playing downtempo, lofi, and deep house. Designed as a place for attendees to cool down and take a break, this year will once again feature national touring acts in addition to yoga at the start of each day. Personally, I’m looking forward to relaxing in this area.

Attendees will once again be invited to groove at Incendia’s Fire Pit Stage, a set of geometric domes that shoot fire from their tops and contain ceilings with fire crawling above the fans. It’s fire, literally.

North Coast will also feature the beloved NCMF Yacht Club – a boat placed in the General Admission crowd area of The Shipyard Stage, complete with a bar, rooftop viewing deck, and funky interior rooms free for all attendees to explore.

Following its successful 2023 debut, North Coast will welcome back Club Coast, a secret location speakeasy. Festival goers will be prompted to find Club Coast with daily location clues and passwords given through the North Coast app. That was one of our favorite parts of the weekend last year.

Last year, North Coast fans enjoyed the new addition of The Ferris Wheel, which will return in 2024 to elevate the overall festival experience for attendees. VIP tickets will include (1) free ride for the weekend, and Platinum VIP will include (1) free ride per day. 

North Coast continues its celebrated legacy as forward-thinking curators of trap-drawer talent, showcasing performances from dance music’s most in-demand acts. Aside from the musical offerings, North Coast invites Coasties to bask in the festival’s experiential programming, large-scale art offerings, and a plethora of food, beverage, and shopping vendors with both single-day and three-day ticket options available.

Fans can choose from a variety of ticketing options including three-day GA, VIP, or Platinum tickets and single-day GA, VIP, or Platinum tickets. North Coast also offers payment plan options as well. All tickets are available for purchase via https://www.northcoastfestival.com/
