Festivals to Attend this Late Summer

Some Late Summer Fests for You!

Music festivals are the soulmates of summer. Their unwavering ability to offer days filled with bliss and freedom make these events absolutely unforgettable. You’re probably frowning at the thought that summer is almost over, and therefore festivals like Coachella and Bonnaroo are in the rearview mirror. But, no fear! As long as the warm, long days still exist, so will the opportunities to attend the beloved events of the season. Barefoot Campus Outfitter loves summer music festivals and we’re still trying to hop on every chance to have some fun in the sun, jamming to our favorite artists. If you’re on the search for the music festival to top off the final days of summer, look no further:

Festival: North Coast

Dates: September 1-3, 2017

Spot: Chicago, Illinois

The only thing better than some deep dish pizza is deep dish pizza enjoyed after one of Chicago’s best festivals. North Coast is coming back to the Windy City this Labor Day for three days of fun, art, and, of course, music. North Coast is the festival for the music savvy, as it features some of music’s most talented artists. With a Deadmau5 & Eric Prydz duo set, a live Bonobo set, and a Sunday topped off with the magnificent Tipper, North Coast did an epic job of providing Union Park in Chicago with three days of show-stopping performances. Make sure to sport some college apparel by the one and only Barefoot Campus outfitter! You’re sure to look festy-ready.
