As if we needed another reason to love Labor Day weekend even more, the folks over at North Coast Music Group (a collaboration between local independent promoters React Presents, Silver Wrapper, Cold Grums Productions, Kingtello and Metronome Chicago) comes along and gives us an even better way to kiss the summer goodbye.
For three days North Coast will invade Union Park with a lineup that rivals any festival that this year has to offer. Performers include The Chemical Brothers, Nas & Damian “Jr. Gong” Marley, Umphrey’s McGee, Moby, De La Soul, Lupe Fiasco, Flying Lotus, Jay Electronica, Mayer Hawthorne & The County, Holy Ghost!, New Mastersounds and more. The lineup is still growing, but you can keep up here.
If you’re a bit wary about the lack of a Chicago presence on the bill (Lupe still counts, right?) then check out the supremely talented band, Loyal Divide. Now we could give you a lengthy description on how great these guys are or you can do some research on your own. The reward? A pair of three day passes. All you have to do is watch their latest video (below), do a little investigating and answer the following questions in the comments section:
Who directed the video to “Vision Vision” (hint: it’s in the video)?
Who makes up the Loyal Divide (and yes, spelling counts)?
What’s the name of their new (and free) single and what album is it featured on?
