Party at North Coast

September 8, 2015

You wouldn’t have known summer’s final days were approaching if you were among the thousands that gathered in Union Park Sept. 4 for the annual 3-day North Coast Music Festival.

Summer was alive on the event grounds, which hosted a broad collective of artists, including electronic punk band Knife Party, rapper Wale and alternative punk group Portugal. The Man.

A cool breeze set the stage for solo-indie group RAC, who performed for an energetic crowd that jumped to the band’s 45-minute set at the 630 stage at 6 p.m. on Friday.

At the other end of the park, a 1,000-person dance party took to life at the 847 stage, where DJ Salva and DJ Exma kept crowds in the mood as a golden sun set over the city.

When night fell, the park was illuminated by glowing hula- hoops and various rainbow lights, which electrified the festival grounds located on the city’s western skyline.

Just then, California-based electronic group The Glitch Mob took to the 630 stage and energized the audience with the group’s latest hit, “Head Full of Shadows.”

Headlining band Widespread Panic closed out Friday’s portion of the fest, leaving festival goers weekend-ready.
