We have a lot of drinking to get to, so we’ll keep this brief. “Phase One” of the North Coast 2016 lineup has been revealed, and it’s ridiculously promising.

As we’ve said many times, North Coast is without question the hidden gem of Chicago music festivals. After putting up with passed-out teenagers all summer, it’s a relaxing little getaway in Union Park for Chicago’s true music fans to experience some of the best performers in the game.

Last year, we saw unbelievable acts from Porter Robinson, RAC, Knife Party, Chromeo and even Macy Gray. Yes, that Macy Gray.

This year, it appears North Coast has continued to one-up themselves. In alphabetical order, here are some of the most notable names on the list:

North Coast 2016 lineup (PHASE I): 

– Action Bronson
– Juicy J
Keys N Krates
ODESZA (!!!!!!)
– Ty Dolla $ign
– Zedd

Between proven DJ’s (Zedd and Galantis), the best live electronic act in the game (ODESZA), and an absolute slew of hip-hop talent – this appears to be one of the best lineups yet. And oh yeah, this is just the first phase.

We’ll keep you posted with more news.
