Inside Tips for North Coast Music Festival
1. Grassroots Booth/Chris Dyer Exhibition
Be sure to swing by the Grassroots merch booth at the fest for exclusive deals and all of the new swag! We will be posted up all weekend so please come by and show some love, North Coast is always one of our favorite stomping grounds of the summer. Also, make sure to swing by the official merch booth and peep our official hats for the fest! (pictured below)

To coincide with the fest, Grassroots is thrilled to be launching an art exhibition for visionary artist Chris Dyer opening on September 1st. Many within the Grassroots community are already familiar with Chris Dyer and his incredible artwork from our collaborated collection with him. If you walk into any of the Grassroots locations or go to our website it wont be hard to spot his psychedelic and visionary works of art. For those that do not know Chris, he is a psychedelic artist from Canada that thrives on inspiring his artwork from the parts of the world he has traveled. He is known for several different mediums of art including skateboards, street art, acrylic, tattoo, and more. We have plans to make this art exhibition launch party a full experience filled with great art, music, food, and drinks. This will be the first exhibit in our pop up art gallery known as the "Movement Gallery" where we plan to have more artists showcase their work on a consistent basis. To check out more about Chris Dyer and his awesome artwork, click here!
