North Coast Music Festival was originally founded in 2010 by a group of independent promoters who came together to create a festival of emerging and established artists from a diverse range of genres. Between them they produce hundreds of Chicago-based events each year, including multiple festivals in the Midwest, one off events at Chicago music venues, street festivals, and more, that attract thousands of fans and artists from all over the world.
