North Coast Music Festival just announced the lineup for this years edition of the festival in Union Park and it's a pretty impressive array of artists, including a few notable scores for the smaller festival.

Headliners include D’Angelo and The Vanguard as well as The Chemical Brothers and a yet to be named third headliner to be announced May 12. Obviously getting D’Angelo is a major coup. Produced by Questlove, his latest album Black Messiah is one of the strongest works of R&B we’ve heard in quite awhile and rested firmly atop many “best album of the year” lists, a huge comeback effort from the crooner.

Chemical Brothers headlined the very first North Coast back in 2009 and are slated to return this year as they tour in support of their forthcoming album, their first one in five years, Born in the Echoes. The first single, “Sometimes I Feel So Deserted” was released last week, you can check it out here.

Other notable acts include The Roots, Chromeo, Tycho, Wale and Twin Shadow as well as local artists such as Green Velvet, Lili K and The O’Mys. Check out the full lineup below.

North Coast Music Festival will be held at Union Park on Sept. 4-6. Three-day passes are $159 plus a lofty service fee of $21.65 and can be purchased here. VIP passes are also available for $259 plus a $24.95 service fee.
