North Coast Announces Single-Day Lineups, More After-Parties

As festival season gets into gear, North Coast Music Festival, the self-proclaimed "last stand" of summer, has announced its single-day lineups, as well as a handful of official after-parties. Additionally, the festival has released a "very limited" amount of $40 single-day tickets. Once this allotment has sold out, prices will rise to $45.

North Coast has logically divided its lineup rather evenly by genre (which you can see below), giving each day a balanced dose of the festival's overall vibe. No one day leans too heavily towards any genre, and -- barring any time slot gaffes -- festivalgoers should be pleased by the flow of the weekend. We can't see any day that stands above the rest, either, so clearly North Coast has done its best to ensure attendees go all three days.

North Coast will host its official after-parties all over the city, including recently announced ones at Bottom Lounge with The Hood Internet, The New Mastersounds, and Lettuce.
