As if the natural beauty of Union Park and Living Graffiti Gallery weren’t enough, we’re bringing in some of Chicago’s most innovative and original artists to display art and installations around the fest grounds.
Insanely talented painter JUNGLE will be creating a 3D trap house (we can’t wait to see what that is!). JAS PETERSON will have her stylized paintings on display. Popular street artist LEFTY has some projection mapping in store for us. DON MEGA ART is bringing his beautifully decorated furniture. The brilliant JESSICA LUGOWSKI is dressing up the park with her whimsical ornamentation. Our grounds will be decorated with the “trees” of EVA LUCIA. A large LED geodesic shape will occupy space on a baseball diamond, provided by SYNERGEO. PENNY PINCH is covering the fences with humorous characters lending curious thoughts. Hammock Domes will be spread around the fest for taking a relaxing break from dancing. And NIKKO WASHINGTON is working on something that’ll be a surprise even to us!
These are just a few of the installations and art pieces for you to play amongst at North Coast 2017. Join us Labor Day weekend to get the full experience.
1) STAY HYDRATED AND KEEP COOL! The weather forecast is looking perfect, but don’t underestimate the heat so take time to refill your water at one of our four refill stations located on the MAP. Remember, empty camel backs ARE allowed, so come prepared! And if it gets into the 90’s we’ll be turning on the Spray Mist Station located on the basketball courts so be sure to take advantage and cool down with that. It’s a long weekend, take time to rest and hydrate!
In an effort to make SAMF weekend as stress-free as possible for all attending, we’ve decided to open up a Will Call in the days leading up to the fest. This way anyone who needs to go to Will Call to pick up their wristband can do so prior to the fest and avoid lines.
This includes anyone on the guest list or anyone who purchased a pass but did not get their wristband delivered to them. Government issued photo ID will be required at Will Call and the name on the order must match the name on the ID.
