Seeing live music can be a transcendent mind-body experience, akin to getting a tattoo underwater or making out during an eclipse.

The North Coast Music Festival is a three-day hat doff to the waning days of summer. Send off halcyon hours in style and gird your gooseflesh for the inevitable onslaught of winter with a lineup that includes electronic, hip-hop, jam-band, and indie-rock artists both famous and obscure. On Friday, the electronic poppiness of The Chemical Brothers will waft from the stage until it enters the noses and eventually implants itself in the brains of concertgoers. Saturday's lineup features the progressive improvisation of Umphrey's McGee and a DJ set by Moby, or Richard Melville Hall on his birth certificate, who has provided hot, ambient beats to films such as Any Given Sunday, The Beach, and Citizen Kane. The festival's final day presents Chicago product Lupe Fiasco and crowd-moving collaborators Nasty Nas and Damian "Jr. Gong" Marley.

Located mere steps from the Ashland-Lake stop of the Green Line, Union Park is one of the city's carefully cultivated green spaces. This green theme is continued via the festival's commitment to green disposal and recycling, making the weekend one that can be celebrated free from the guilt-ridden mental images of filthy, weeping seagulls wearing tuxedos made out of newspapers.

Excellent festival, and I love being able to get my tickets through Groupon. I've been going to the fest all 3 years, and every year, it's one of my favorite weekends of summer. Thank you for the experience and for providing a great deal through Groupon!
