North Coast, one of Chicago’s most successful and diverse music festivals of the season, will be returning to Union Park for another installment on September 4th. Alongside their wide list of musical acts from all backgrounds – think D’Angelo, Porter Robinson, Kill The Noise, Jauz, and Trippy Turtle – the festival has just announced its slew of after parties to be held during the weekend.


From Thursday through Monday, more than 25 acts will take to stages all around the city to perform a more intimate set for those not tired enough to call it a night. Among the list are cover bands of Daft Punk and LCD Soundsystem, as well as shows from Knife Party, Sweater Beats, Steve Aoki, and Chromeo. After party tickets can now be purchased directly through North Coast’s website here. Be sure to grab your spot soon, as the smaller venues are likely to fill up quick!

Take a peek at the full list of after parties below. We’ll see you at the park!
