When it comes to lineup announcements, some festivals go for the big reveal. Others, like this year’s North Coast, chose the Chinese water torture method of announcing their roster. The Chicago, IL-based festival, set to run September 2-4 in Union Park, followed up an eclectic initial list of names for this years shindig with an equally diverse round of additions.
Joining the likes of David Guetta, Wiz Khalifa, Thievery Corportation, Common, Lotus, Gogol Bordello, and Neon Indian will be Fat Boy Slim, ATB, Bassnectar, Major Lazer, of Montreal, and The Budos Band. Also included in the second wave of North Coast 2k11 announcements are James Zabiela, Great Divide, and Auto Body.
The additions brings the total number of announced acts to almost 20, and more than 40 artists have yet to be announced. You may have missed out on the festivals half-price Groupon, but three-day passes are still available for just $95. Single day passes will be available for $45 towards the end of this month, and organizers are still taking inquiries from those interested in volunteering at the festival.
