The North Coast Music Festival was a huge event in Chicago. On the third and last day of the festival, we got up close and personal with Flying Lotus.  Lotus had an intense (almost magical) connection with the crowd that came out to see his performance.  Hands down, Flying Lotus is a cool guy.

Lupe Fiasco was the last act on the Groupon Stage at the North Coast Music Festival.  Before we go on, there’s nothing like experiencing  a Lupe Fiasco concert set live.  Fiasco is great at putting on a show so good you could slap your mother.  The highlight of his set was  his performance of  “Go To Sleep” live for the first time.

Further on in the set, he performed “Dumb It Down” and several other smashing hits from his last release The Cool.  Overall, we were feeling his dashiki infused t-shirt with the face of Malcolm X printed on the front.  The shirt reminds of his Rick Ross B.M.F. (Freestyle) where he says, ” I think I’m Malcolm X, Martin Luther, add a King, add a Jr.”  Chicago loves you Lupe.  No matter what anybody says keep doing you!

Each summer, Chicago festivals offer iconic settings, and undeniable mainstream, alternative, and indie acts. But Midwest’s most fervent and insatiable music fans beg for a blend of the flavours offered at these fests, and at gatherings from Indio, California to Brooklyn, New York. Enter “Summers Last Stand,” the inaugural North Coast Music Festival, descending upon Union Park in Chicago, IL this Labour Day Weekend!

From September 3rd – 5th, Chicago’s favourite independent producers and worthwhile charities welcome the world’s electronic, house, jamband, indie, and hip-hop communities to Union Park for a line-up that continues to grow. 3 Days, 35+ bands, for $35/day. A portion of all ticket sales will go to support Urban Initiatives, a Chicago-based non-profit organization that runs a health and education soccer program in fourteen Chicago Public Schools and continues to grow.

The Goodie Bag has linked on as an official sponsor and we’re really excited to be a part of such a great event in Chicago. Make sure you head over to their site to check out all the line-up information, schedule, FAQ, and to pick yourself up some tickets for today and tomorrow.
