This weekend, the annual Northside Festival will take acrossNorth Brooklyn. Headquarters are in McCarren park, but events will take place at venues all over Greenpoint, Williamsburg, East Williamsburg, and Bushwick.
The six-day event consists of music, arts, and a technology expo which lasts through Sunday. The music starts on Thursday with a line-up of over 400 artists including big headliners such as Brian Wilson, Grandmaster Flash, and Conor Oberst.
Northside is selling all-access badges for music, content, and innovation separately, or an all-access pass for every part of the festival. Or, if you only have your heart set on one band, you can purchase individual concert tickets at varied prices.
The festival, now in its eighth year, is organized by Northside Media Group so that attendees can “immerse [themselves] in live music…hear about the cutting edge of technology, design and content by those forgetting old ways and forging new paths” and “shine a spotlight on the crazy talented artists making art, music and films right in your backyard”
It promises to be one of the most exciting and culturally enriching weekends of the summer! If you haven’t checked out any Northside events yet, there’s still plenty going on in the coming days. See you there, Brooklyn!
