North Coast Music Fest 2012 announces partial lineup, early passes sold out

True to tradition, North Coast Music Festival announced a partial lineup of headliners for the third annual fest--Aug. 31-Sept. 2 at Union Park--just after midnight on Monday evening, along with a Groupon deal for discounted fest passes. Within about 30 minutes, the limited $62 passes were sold out. 

Topping the headliners list is Chicago-area native Pretty Lights, who has sold out many shows at Congress Theatre (and also puts on quite the spectacle, like this one with guest Benny the Bull). Rapper Big Boi and hip-hop group Atmosphere will join a roster of electronic dance music groups and artists including:

The Rapture
Steve Aoki
Van Ghost
Axwell of Swedish House Mafia
Dan Deacon
Exosion
Alesso
Modestep
Mord Fustang
Felix Da Housecat
Yacht
King Khon
Rebirth Brass Band
Maya Jane Coles
Com Truise
Auto Body

We can't say we weren't warned, though. A post on the fest's Facebook page from early Monday afternoon suggested checking back at midnight. North Coast has used its Twitter and Facebook accounts to announce lineup additions and Groupon deals in past years.
