The North Coast Music Festival is running Friday through Saturday Huntington Bank Pavilion at Northerly Island.

Long a fixture of Union Park in its first nine iterations, the Labor Day weekend EDM fest moved this summer to Northerly Island where more than 20 acts will be presented on two stages.

Among the artists featured will be DJ Bassnectar (aka Lorin Ashton) and the EDM trio Major Lazer (Diplo, Jillionaire and Walshy Fire). You can check out the full lineup and purchase tickets here.

Here’s a look at some of the festival fun on Friday:
