f you thought you knew North Coast, then think again. North Coast just released their 2019 lineup and every name on the bill is an electronic act. Considering it was already known that this year's North Coast will take place at Northerly Island, this dramatic shift in music taste completes the ominous tagline 'New Location, New Vibe'. It isn't out of the ordinary for Bassnectar to be headlining this festival but for there to be no other genre represented in the lineup is not only a sign of evolution of music tastes but of financial necessity. Silver Wrapper, one of the founders of North Coast, is going out of business this May and this change for North Coast is no doubt an effect. Although change can seem like a scary thing, it usually just holds new gifts for us to experience and learn from. I expect the same sort of thing for North Coast this year, check out the stellar lineup below. Tickets go on sale this Friday April 26th!
