Mike Raspatello (of North Coast Music Festival) on GWHH Radio Recap

Ever wonder how a big concert event or festival becomes a reality? Well, we asked just that to chief organizer of the North Coast Music Festival, Mike Raspatello, to find out how he and his team coordinated the successful Labor Day festival here in Chicago. Just before the festival, we had Mike on-air in the studio for our GWHH Radio Show on Vocalo.org 89.5 FM (Thursdays at 8PM CT!). We not only talked about all the behind the scenes experiences in setting up the North Coast Music Festival, but also his previous work experiences, concert experiences, and artist experiences, and what tips he provides for upcoming promoters and entrepreneurs. His story is very inspiring because as Mike says, they were the underdogs, and for them to successfully put together an end of the summer music festival like North Coast with such big-name artists as Nas, Lupe Fiasco, De La Soul, and Jay Electronica (and that's only the hip hop) is truly amazing. Congrats Mike and we hope you guys can all take something out of our two-part interview above!
This also wraps up our North Coast Music Festival coverage, which also features videos and pictures of live performances of Nas & Damian Marley, Lupe Fiasco, Jay Electronica, and our interview with De La Soul. Click here for the full archive.
