The third annual North Coast Music Festival took over Chicago's Union Park for "summer's last stand" over the Labor Day Weekend and the results -- judging by the below photo evidence -- were pretty epic.
Gapers Block and Heave Media were on the ground over the balmy, mostly rain-free weekend and offered up their observations from the three-day festival, which featured the likes of Girl Talk, Pretty Lights, Big Boi, YACHT and many more among its talent-packed lineup.
Photographer (and HuffPost blogger) Justin Barbin was also on hand at the fest and, courtesy of CrowdNoize.com, shared some of his favorite photos from the weekend. Scroll down to check out his picks from a music-filled holiday weekend.
