Like most music fests now, the North Coast Music Festival sold out its first round of discounted tickets in December before announcing a single act. Now regular tickets for the summer-ending, three-day event are on sale -- and here's who's playing.

The first wave of headliners for NCMF 2013, announced today, hit the fest's three nodal points (hip-hop, EDM, jam) square on: Wu-Tang Clan, Afrojack and Big Gigantic.

Other performers annoucned include Nas, the Disco Biscuits, Lotus, Mac Miller, Gary Clark Jr., Rebelution, Purity Ring, Laidback Luke, Datsik, Madeon, Paper Diamond, Skream, Claude VonStroke, RL Grime, Aloe Blacc, AlunaGeorge, Just Blaze, Capital Cities, JC Brooks & the Uptown Sound, El Ten Eleven, Cherub, Poolside, Flatbush Zombies, ON AN ON, Thibault, K.Flay and Dean Cohen.

Per usual, MCMF happens on Labor Day weekend -- early this year, Aug. 30-Sept. 1 -- in Union Park.

Regular three-day passes are $135 (the VIP version is $220), plus fees, available here.
