North Coast 2014 — Preview

This year’s North Coast Music Festival lineup of headliners include…

Friday – Bassnectar & Alesso

Saturday – Kid Cudi, STS9, & Nicky Romero

Sunday – Snoop Dogg, Dada Life, Zeds Dead

I can’t wait to see Kid Cudi! We caught a secret, very intimate show at SXSW in Austin, TX a couple years back and it was unbelievable. Three others I’m looking to see are Washed Out, Little Dragon, and Adventure Club (“Rise & Fall” feat. Krewella being a personal fav.). As a Portlandia enthusiast and fan of chillwave tunes it is my mission to catch Washed Out play at NCMF, especially since I missed him play while at MusicFestNW in Portland last year. Little Dragon is on my radar as well. They played a couple shows at SXSW this year; we happened to be checking out a show next door one of the nights and the line to check out their set was at least an hour +, not even guaranteed entry. Just as with most festival goers discovering new music and up-and-coming artists is at the top of the list of reasons I love festivals and of course exploring the magical festival grounds.
