Seeing live music can be a transcendent mind-body experience, akin to getting a tattoo underwater or making out during an eclipse. Today's Groupon helps you transcend your boredom with admission to the North Coast Music Festival in Union Park, which will take place Labor Day weekend, Friday, September 2–Sunday, September 4. Children 12 and under receive free admission.
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. Wiz Khalifa's slick rhymes and the detached electric complexity of Neon Indian's sonic clouds will waft from the stage, entering noses and eventually implanting themselves into the brains of concert-goers.
Ears will also enjoy Thievery Corporation's polished mixes as minds transcend the energetic dance field with Little Dragon's soothing brand of Swedish trip-hop. Common's conscious rhymes and verbal acrobatics demand aural attention and oft inspire onlookers to freestyle about the closeness of the crowd and impractical pie fillings. North Coast's additional artists and final schedule—both to be announced—can be viewed by feverishly refreshing the festival's home page, or easily fatigued fingers can just subscribe to its mailing list.
