North Coast Music Festival near Chicago, Illinois just released an impressive lineup for Labor Day Weekend featuring Diplo, Fisher, Armin van Buuren, Illenium, and Porter Robinson.
One of the most iconic Chicago festivals of the last decade is North Coast Music Festival. Taking place annually since 2010, the inaugural year at SeatGeek Stadium in 2021 was definitely a success. The 2022 lineup is already here, and North Coast is returning to Bridgeview, Illinois in an epic way next September.
The headliners for North Coast 2022 are Armin van Buuren, Illenium, Porter Robinson, Fisher, Diplo, and Kaytranada. Other headliners include Gryffin, Seven Lions, SVDDEN DEATH, Subtronics, and Tchami x Malaa, and the lineup only gets more impressive as you make your way to the undercard.
While the first wave of the lineup was initially released in December 2021, the second and final phase was just revealed in March 2022. North Coast added Madeon, Two Friends, Boogie T, Luttrell, Martin Ikin, Yotto, Wooli, Solardo, Moksi, Mitis, Mersiv, and many more to their 2022 schedule.
UPDATE: North Coast 2022 Set Times are out now! North Coast tickets are still available.

North Coast might be the superior EDM festival in Chicago next year, with Slander, Deorro, CID, Jason Ross, Eptic, Trivecta, Marauda, Dombresky, and MUST DIE! also making appearances.
The deep and diverse lineup will definitely allow for three full days of consistently good music. There are also some hidden gems at the bottom of the lineup like Digitist b2b Executioner, Steve Gerard, Ubur b2b Aweminus b2b Yakz, Bentley Dean, Lizzy Jane, Xavi, Sherm, and Flynninho.
2022 is scheduled to be North’s Coast second year at SeatGeek Stadium, a former MLS stadium located close to Chicago.
The festival’s former venues include a year at Northerly Island after spending nearly a decade at Union Park (now home to ARC festival). I was skeptical when North Coast moved to the suburbs last year, but the venue and vibe of the festival were much better than expected. North Coast is the perfect way to celebrate the end of summer and festival season (until Lost Lands).
