North Coast is known for balancing their EDM focus with a solid showing of jam bands and hip-hop artists, and this year they’ve done it better than ever. Bassnectar, Kid Cudi, STS9, and Snoop Dogg headline an eclectic lineup that includes everyone from indie-rockers Future Islands to batshit-insane rapper Riff Raff. Check out the entire initial lineup, along with an announcement video, below.
