You know what Chicago needs? Another summer music festival. Pitchfork, Lollapalooza, Jazz Fest, Blues Fest, Gospel Fest, Crossroads, West Fest, Metronome, Wicker Park Fest and all the others just aren’t enough to satisfy our need for eclectic tunage. At least that’s what the people behind the recently announced North Coast Music Festival think.

Consider us intrigued. The fest, scheduled to take place over Labor Day weekend (September 3-5) in Union Park, seems like it’ll be a great way to close out the season — and that’s without even knowing who will be playing. We’ve got faith that promoters Silverwrapper and Kingtello have some exciting ideas in store, which they’ll be announcing soon via the fest’s Twitter feed. You can also join the Facebook group to add your lineup suggestions.
