If you love live music, then you will like the relax atmosphere and good vibes. Not as busy as Lollapalooza. They did evacuate us one day and for a storm there were monitoring and never came thru, not even a rain drop. I never got to see my Band- The Revivalists. They did offer a 2nd day free entry. It was a nice gesture, but my band was not playing 2 days in a row.

Tickets said festival will go on rain or shine and they cancelled the festival when it started raining. I have been trying to contact Rush49 and NCMF top receive a refund since I didn't attend because of that reason.

I was very satisfied. I never heard of Rush 49 until I saw an advertisement for the North Coast Music Fest. I tried them out and they were legit. I went through chat to make sure that I was going to get a conformation email and I did with in minutes. When I got to North Coast I did have a bit of trouble with my tickets being scanned but it was immediately solved because Rush had reached out to them as a new buyer I was told.

It was really fun until they evacuated us despite the fact that it was not raining or storming and never did in that area! Waste of money due to not being able to see the headliners

Didn't enjoy this festival. There was way too much drug use and lots of kids being medically removed due to overdoses. Very uncomfortable event.
