Posted by Frank

Not ready to face the end of this year's summer music festivals quite yet?

Luckily, a brand new music fest will be held in Chicago this Labor Day weekend to keep the fun going strong. From Friday, September 3 to Sunday, September 5, the inaugural North Coast Music Festival will bring a wide variety of sounds to Union Park (1501 W. Randolph St.), from indie rock to hip-hop to electro.

Included in the lineup is a number of acts based out of the Windy City, including Hey Champ, Lupe Fiasco, Van Ghost, Loyal Divide, Future Rock and more. Check out the full lineup after the jump.

The fest will run from 4 p.m. to 10 p.m. on Friday and 12 p.m. to 10 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday. Three-day passes are already sold out, but single day passes are still available and cost $40 each. Click here to purchase.
