Totem Specs


North Coast’s new stage, The Shipyard (formerly known as The Canopy) – a newly designed stage that bumps with 492,000 WATTS of sound from world-class house and techno DJs. Constructed with shipping containers and equipped with CO2 and an eye-popping amount of lasers and lights. The Vega will be pointing away from The Shipyard to avoid sound bleed and maximize the volume at both stages – now, the waves of beats and bass will stretch all the way to those in the back as well as to those riding the rail. Amongst the installations making a return from last year’s festival is the popular Chill Dome – a full field soccer dome with lasers, cushions, and air-conditioning complemented by DJs playing downtempo, lofi, and deep house In The Round.

The Beatbox Yacht Club – a boat onsite with interior rooms that attendees can explore, a bar, and a deck at the top for a birds eye view above the crowd of The Shipyard stage. Club Coast will be a secret location speakeasy, will also be making its debut at North Coast this year.  Festival goers will have to find Club Coast on their own. Then of course The Stadium that will be keeping the festival going until midnight.

Once the festival is over is up to you, but consider the vast after party selection ARC Music Festival has put together. This is going to be a weekend of a lifetime, you will remember the summer of 2023.
