Lupe Fiasco Added to Chicago’s North Coast Music Festival

Lupe Fiasco has been added to his hometown’s inaugural North Coast Music Festival, taking place over Labor Day weekend at Chicago’s Union Park.

The three-day event will be heavy on the hip-hip: De La Soul, Nas & Damian Marley and Jay Electronica are among the MCs joining Lupe on the bill. Flying Lotus will morph swagga into booty-shaking beats with his experimental hip-hop-centric electronica — with the genre further represented by headliners Moby and the Chemical Brothers. Other acts added to the bill today include emerging DFA Records DJ Holy Ghost!, techno-minimalist Claude VonStroke, rockers Grace Potter and the Nocturnals and U.K. neo-jazz act the New Mastersounds. Other previously announced acts include Boys Noize, Pretty Lights, Paul Van Dyke, Mayer Hawthorne & The County, the Disco Biscuits, Umphrey’s McGee, Benga and more.

Tickets are a bargain at $75 for a 3-day pass or $35 for each individual day. Discounted 4-pack 3-day passes are also available for $240 — only $25 more than one 3-day pass to Lollapalooza. To purchase tickets head here. The oddly-eclectic North Coast Music Festival — hosted by an array of independent promoters “who celebrate the merging of all music and walks of life” — goes off September 3-5.
