Giveaway: North Coast Music Festival in Chicago

by -

North Coast Music Festival is set to kickoff their inaugural year next weekend in Chicago’s Union Park, and we’re got FIVE pairs of tickets to giveaway to the lucky fans in the area that can make it out for the event.

For those that haven’t been following, the festival is a newcomer to an already packed Chicago festival circuit, with Pitchfork Music Festival in July and Lollapalooza in August. Add to that a plethora of street festivals around town and the fact that you’re driving distance from Alpine Valley and Deer Creek, you’ve got yourself a pretty action-slammed summer musically speaking. Not that you could afford tickets to all of those events or make time for it, but talk about choices. So many you were on the fence with this one, even though the headliners of Umphrey’s McGee, Disco Biscuits, Nas & Damian Marley, Moby, Pretty Lights, and Lotus are really worth the ticket price and definitely deserve your attention on a warm, autumn afternoon in the great Windy City. That’s where we step in…

We’ve got five pairs of tickets to unload before the festival begins next week. Yes, FIVE. What a chance at one of them? Cool. Here’s how you enter…

    There are so many good acts playing there but I’d really love to see Grace Potter & the Nocturnals. I’ve heard Grace is an amazing live performer and she gives this male heavy lineup at the festival a nice balance. I’d love the chance to see them as they claw their way to greater acclaim!

    I want to get FUNKed up! Hopefully I’m not too late for this contest. I really want to see The New Mastersounds! I saw them briefly at Wakarusa a few years back and they were awesome! Ever since I’ve never been able to see them live and I don’t think they come to the states very much.
