I love summer. I love summer so much, that I save all my complains for cold months. I don’t let a single negative word come out of my mouth while the sweet summer heat goldens my skin. That’s why North Coast Music Festival is bitter sweet. NCMF means the end of summer, our last chance to let our hair down and rock the grounds of a park somewhere in some city (this case Union Park, Chicago), celebrating our love for music and all the fun summer has brought… But enough with this weather analogy, NCMF is the perfect way to celebrate the closing of yet another great summer while staying positive, got it!
This year, I raffled off tickets (Thank you thank you North Coast!) tickets to bring along 2 music festival lovers! These lucky gals, joined my photog/dancer/musician friend Kayla as we taught them the culture and life of festival going! It was their first festival ever! We booked our rooms, planned our festival outfits, packed our weekenders and hit the road to Chicago.
The summer humidity was on blast and the heat was perfect. As we walked through the gates of the festival, we roam each stage and area of the grounds. We checked out the venders, the art, and familiarized ourselves with each state and location. Our first full set was DVSN, then we planned to split as some of wanted to check out Miguel and others wanted see Axwell /\ Ingrosso. That was our plan. That was probably the plan for many. Unfortunately Chicago had other plans in mind.
As we we ran to our hotel through the streets of Chicago, we kissed all frustrations goodbye and allowed ourselves to be playful in the rain. Last time we enjoyed playing in the rain was when we were kids and North Coast (Mother Nature really but let’s go with it) gave us the opportunity to do so again! So thank you NCMF! In our minds we still had 2 full days, so cutting one day short was no problem.
Half way through DVSN’s amazing set, the rain went from an annoying mist, to a full blown storm. The winds blew tents over, the water quickly gathered creating puddles elephants wold love to play in, and the vibe went from festivity to run-for-safety. For our, and everyone working/preforming at North Coast, safety, the festival was closed for the night. Big acts Axwell /\ Ingross and Miguel were cancelled.
Saturday was promising! We went to a fun brunch, we fueled our bodies with mimosas and joy and off we went to celebrate day 2! Our plan was to loudly dance in the silent disco, check out the live art, ride the disco shark, check out new artists and dance to the craziness that is DJ Snake. I also did fall in love with The Polish Ambassador & Diplomatic Scandal. I loved everything about them and their music.
Unfortunately, the windy city kept it’s nickname proud and gates were shot early due to severe weather warnings. Listen, we’re all for safety and making sure our bodies don’t over work themselves, so we were OK leaving a little early. Out of our Saturday plan, all we missed was DJ Snake, so it was a successful day.
Sunday was the day we set to really check out new artists and fall in love with new music. After our traditional visit to the infamous bean, which BTWs it’s actually called ‘Cloud Gate’ – 🤦🏽♂️ did not know that- we head into our final NCMF day. We really wanted to check out Crywolf. So glad we did! He’s whole vibe and set were perfect. We sat on the ground and watch festival goers dance, blow glitter into the air and lounge on huge picnic blankets. We even caught a sweet sweet moment of mom and son sharing their love of music. Jacob Banks blew our minds off! His voice, is amazing! His vibe, is full of life and soul. Everything about his set and performance had us all in awe.
Despite the early closure of Friday and Saturday and having to leave early Sunday, we’re happy to report that our North Coast Music Festival 2018 was an absolute success. Will we do it again? 100%. Will I recommend it to others? 100%. Will I try to have another contest for next NCMF? 100%!! Thank you North Coast for keeping us safe and taking good care of us. Thank you for the new music and thank you for the good times. I’m happy to say that I will see you again next year.
Did you go to North Coast? Let me know about your experience! Who was our favorite artist? Favorite stage? Favorite food vendor? I want to know it all!
It’s officially North Coast Music Festival Week!!! In less than 24 hours we will be roaming the Union Park grounds in Chicago. We already know the lineup is amazing. An incredibly eclectic set of musicians will hit 5 different stages throughout the 3 day festival.
Here’s the map of the grounds. Plan and share this with your squad so you guys know where your favorite artists, food, merchandise stations, food and drinks are all at.
SET TIMES! Plan your weekend around the artist you want to see. Make sure you leave a little wiggle room so you can check out new and different music. Music Festivals are ideal for falling in love with someone new… artist and fling!
Single day tickets are still available for sale HERE. Don’t forget to pack light, stay hydrated, be helpful to others, and PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE, make sure you live in the moment. Put the phone away, well, don’t, you have to capture as much as you can on social media so can share with everyone… but while you’re not sharing with everyone, put the phone down, live in the moment. Make memories. Make new friends. HAVE FUN!
See you guys this weekend! And if you see me, stop me and say hello! Let’s take a pic and share a dance!
This makes me want to go to TomorrowLand so much more. Never been, but I have to TomorrowWorld, but it’s for sure in my bucket list, and the official aftermovie makes me want to go to it so much more! Their message is amazing and the vibes are EVERYTHING!
Ok, the production of the main stage is crazy! It looked like you really would feel like you were underwater. Minute 9ish, when ‘Your Mind’ by Adam Beyer & Bart Skills plays… uuuufffff!!!!
Everything look amazing and the aftermovie does such an amazing job at wrapping it all up nicely. Like, I really really wanna go! Is it just me, or that ending a solid tearjerker?! UGH!!! I love them so much!!!! Did you guys like the aftermovie? What was your favorite moment?
yyyaaaaassss Benny!!!! Thank you for the perfect summer jam.
He’s teamed up with Sofi Tucker for ‘Everybody Needs a Kiss’. The track utilizes a deep horn-led hook, and relies on strong melodic elements. Literally was hooked 10 seconds in. ‘Everybody Needs a Kiss’ is available now!
As Spring Awakening Music Festival grows in popularity, stage production, musical acts and strong presence in the electronic music festival realm; it for sure breaths the PLUR vibes that many festivals stride for. Over the years, SAMF has worked in developing the ideal setting for it’s infamous festival. Trying different locations, evolving festival layouts, stage productions, and as it grows, it’s soul, implements the harsh lessons learned along the way to provide it’s beloved fans a greater and better experience.
For it’s 2018 edition, the SAMF & React Presents team worked over time to bring incredible, world renown DJs to their newly and hugely upgraded stages. They worked on prepping for the anticipated 100,000 attendees throughout it’s three day festivities and brought along extra city security to maintain a safe environment, in and outside, the festival grounds.
Now here’s where the PLUR vibes level up… The crowd was nothing but respectful of each other, helpful to one another, kind to indifference, and welcoming to unfamiliarities. Proud festival goers carried their flags representing their country or state, LGBTQ flags roam the grounds in celebration of music and PRIDE month, and SAMF set an example of respect for each others bodies and personal boundaries by teaming up with OurMusicMyBody. An organization dedicated to educate music lovers how to celebrate music respectfully.
Three strong days of PLUR in your heart and soul leaves us waiting for more, joking with our squads on what we did and when we’ll do it again, counting the days to the next festival (North Coast Music Festival?); And I hope, that just like the way we danced in harmony, we breath PEACE during our stressful weekdays ahead, LOVE those closest to us, bring UNITY to those who are different from us and, above all, RESPECT ourselves the way we want others to respect us.
Here here Spring Awakening, the 2018 edition was a loving success! Check out my FULL Spring Awakening Music Festival experience below:
The 2018 Snake Pit marks for one of the hottest Indy 500 Race day in recent history, in addition to the incredible lineup the ever growing festival put together. This year, our bodies were graced by returning champ Diplo, progressive house living legend Deadmau5, and electronic world domination power duo Axwell /\ Ingrosso.
Tho there were some rocky moments (delays, heat, and melting lop tops) the entirety of the Pit was, to me and those with me (VIP and friends), a success. I’m loving how every year the Snake Pit grows and grows. The stage was bigger and louder. The production thought of it’s 360 view and even decorated the back of the stage. Security was on point and made everyone feel safe and above it all, the crowd was focused on having a good time. My suggestion, lets make it a 2 day event, or maybe even 3!! Hi, the track is open the entire month of May, so starting the party on carb day, wouldn’t be such a bad idea? Thoughts?!?!!?!
Check out the pix below and also let us know what you think in the comment section of our IG video above!
I will tell you, I’m loving putting these lists together. I get asked what i’m listening so often and I figure this would be the best way to share what my musical obsessions currently are. Originally I wanted the lists to have some sort of theme, flow… but then I thought, my shuffle doesn’t, so why should my lists. So here you go 😍 (I’m going to link each song to iTunes, in case you guys wanna get them, ok?):
Claptone – Under The Moon feat. Nathan Nicholson.
First of all, I love all things Claptone. HE’S amazing and I could just die if I got to work for him. The man has an amazing ear and musically that creates sensual, energetic and captivating music. ‘Under The Moon’ does just that, I can’t stop playing it.
Dillon Francis feat. Young Ash- BaBaBa (Vete Pa Ya).
This makes for Dillon Francis’ 3rd single from his upcoming Spanish album.
“For my album I really wanted to make a song reminiscent of ‘Que Que’, but an elevated version of it that was fun yet tough sounding. Young Ash’s flow on this is exactly that,” shared Francis. “It’s truly one of my favorite tracks from the project. Her voice is so strong and striking which makes for such an incredible gritty moombahton song”
Knife Party – LRAD.
Oldie for sure… but holds a special little place in my music loving heart.
Lemaitre – Machine (Coucheron Remix).
Turn on the volume, roll your windows down (if you’re driving) and jam it out!!! This song makes traffic enjoyable. Like I almost (but not really) look forward to 6pm traffic so I can decompress from work and dance a little.
There you guys, Volume 2 of my weekly TOP 10 songs. Hope you’re enjoying the lists as much as I’m enjoying putting them together! And if you remember, IG story yourself jamming to these tracks and tag @RAANNTMAG… I want to see you love these tracks as much as I do.
