Wale made his way back to Chicago last night to perform in front of a packed crowd at North Coast. Wale was very energetic throughout his set and even jumped into the crowd to perform amongst his fans 3 times during his set. Above you can see his performance of “Clappers” and “The White Shoes.” I need that Intercontinental Championship in time for Wrestlemania next year.

North Coast Music Festival Announces 2015 Lineup feat. Chromeo, The Roots, D’Angelo

North Coast 2015 Lineup

Big news today from another one of our favorite festivals in the Windy City… North Coast Music Festival has announced its lineup and it boasts The Chemical Brothers as well as D’Angelo and The Vanguard as its headliners. The third main act on the bill was described in the press release as “a very special SURPRISE ROCK HEADLINER” that will be announced on Tuesday, May 12. This is the same fest that brought the very awesome Gary Clark Jr. in 2013, so it’s safe to say that it will surely be another big one this year.

The Dopeness continues further down the poster with The Roots, Atmosphere, Chromeo, Wale, The Glitch Mob, and Steve Aoki also on this year’s roster.

Shout outs to POD favorites The O’My’s and Lili K for also making the list of great artists coming to Union Park this Labor Day weekend (Sep. 4-6). This is another fest we can’t afford to miss this year.

Tickets are on sale now at www.northcoastfestival.com!

*Look out for the “North Coast After Parties” announcement in the coming weeks.

Video: Kid Cudi Live at North Coast Music Fest 2014

posted by Alberto August 31, 2014

Kid Cudi made his first appearance in Chicago tonight since his last headlining tour last year in September at the UIC Pavilion. We weren’t able to make it out to the show, but we hear it lived up to the Cudder standards we have been accustomed to. After a great performance, Cudi fainted and hit the ground after signing a vinyl for a fan in the front row. We are very happy to report that Cudi is doing well. You can check out some footage of Cudi performing for the NCMF crowd after the jump. Continue Reading

While we’re best known for taking footage at the shows we attend, given that we were given media passes to attend the fest, we decided to not violate those conditions and simply took pictures of the acts we saw throughout this Labor Day weekend.

Read a recap and see some pictures of all that we saw at North Coast Music Festival ’13. *All pictures were taken by Pursuit Of Dopeness. Continue Reading
