About | North Coast Music Festival


North Coast Music Festival, now in it’s 13th year, continues as Chicagoland’s biggest Labor Day Weekend party, happening September 1-3, 2023, returning to the recently renovated campus at SeatGeek Stadium in Bridgeview, IL, just 30 minutes outside the city of Chicago. With a stadium, full-field practice dome, and seven full fields in between with padded turf, attendees can enjoy the comfort of grass without having the deal with the usual muddy floor of a festival.

The size and expansive diversity of the site allows space for six different stages each with a distinct vibe and top-tier production, for a unique experience every time and plenty of areas to get away, join the fun, and explore.

This is your festival. This is everyone’s festival. We not only accept differences, we celebrate them. Everyone and anyone despite race, religion, sexual orientation, age, class, style, or musical choice, is welcome. North Coast does not tolerate speech or actions of hate of any kind.

We offer a home of caring, responsible, like-minded people who’s intention is to create long-lasting memories by celebrating life, human differences, and culture.

Over 100 artists. Six stages. Three days. One unforgettable weekend.


NCMF is still at the top of Chicago fests. From the locas food, the art, to the music, they never fall short. North Coast pulled out all the stops.

In describing the return of NCMF, OUT OF THIS WORLD seems to be the prevailing ideology. and the correct one.
