Itâ€™s all about the music right?…but a little eye candy never hurts.
Weâ€™ve complied a list of tenÂ babes, er artists, playing at North Coast Music Festival this Labor Day weekend, Friday, August 31st – Â September 3rd,Â that we found absolutelyÂ charming.Â Before we have to go back to reality, at least we have one last weekend of raging, jorts, andÂ above all hawt babes.
First it was Eminem, but now Iâ€™m on to the next one. Proving that hip-hop is finally color blind,Â Iâ€™d like to introduce you to Michael Wayne Atha more commonly known as Yelawolf. A rapperÂ from Alabama and a self proclaimed Slumerican, we love his tats and his raunchy tracks thatÂ are guaranteed to be stuck in your head all afternoon. Catch him at the fest on Friday from 5:30-6:30.

Ever since his Lollapalooza show in 2009, Iâ€™ve been harboring a school girl crush on him. ThisÂ Baltimore based, electronica mastermind has a big red beard thatâ€™s just asking to be loved. HisÂ newest album, America, hits August 28th. Catch him at the fest on Saturday from 2:45-3:45.
WATCH: Dan Deacon,Â True Thrush
Slug of Atmosphere
Even though it takes two to complete the Atmosphere duo, we only have eyes for Sean MichaelÂ Daley, or as heâ€™s more affectionately refereed to as Slug. Catch him at the fest on Saturday fromÂ 7:45-8:45.

Greg Gillis of Girl Talk
There two main reasons why DJ Greg Gillis made my top ten list. First, because he reps aÂ wardrobe of mainly plaid shirts and surfer shorts that make me drool. Second, because heâ€™s beenÂ making me dance like a fool since 2006. Catch him at the fest on Saturday from 8:45-10:00.

All the members of the Rapture were so yummy I couldnâ€™t really decide. So they all make theÂ cut! Their sound is pretty mainstream, and has been sampled on many a commercial, but we canÂ learn to ignore that. Luke, Vito and Gabriel: stay pretty! Catch them at the fest on Saturday fromÂ 6:45-7:45.

Claire Evans of YACHT
One of my current girl crushes, in my opinion Claire outshines her partner Jona. Her platinumÂ pixie is absolutely adorable and we dig her style too! Catch her at the fest on Saturday from 3:45-4:45.
WATCH: YACHT, Psychic City
Iâ€™m not sure why, but Iâ€™ve always dug the shoulder length hair look on men. Steve Aoki being aÂ prime example with his bad boy swag. Catch him at the fest on Sunday from 8:00-9:00.

What do I have in common with Cee Lo Green? We both like Jamie Lono of course! You mightÂ recognize him from the TV show The Voice, where he was placed on Cee Loâ€™s team. Canâ€™tÂ blame him though, who doesnâ€™t love a ginger? Catch him at the fest on Saturday from 12:30-1:30.

Once again, this band is just a little too mainstream for my liking but that doesnâ€™t mean I wonâ€™tÂ stop by their set to stare. Brothers Josh and Tony Friend are equally cute with tatted up arms andÂ killer vocals. Catch them at the fest on Sunday from 5:45-6:45.
WATCH: Modestep, Feel Good
It doesnâ€™t take much to get on my list, sometimes just a swag â€˜do. And this 21 year old DJ fromÂ Stockholm, Alessandro Lindblad, simply has great hair. Catch him at the fest on Saturday fromÂ 6:00-7:00.
