Attention North Brooklynites: Northside Festival is finally here! Tomorrow is the beginning of the multi-day music, film, and presentation/panel discussion extravaganza. Williamsburg Walks, will also close traffic down from N. 12th to Metropolitan on Bedford Avenue so that you can enjoy pop up parks, public art,  people watching and more fun!

Sounds a little overwhelming, but as promised, we’ve organized a guide for the 4-day music part of the festival! There will be over 350 artists performing at a range of venues, indoors and out! We’ve selected local favorites as well as some big timers and up and comers! No badge? Don’t sweat it! A lot of the shows are selling tickets at the door, or they are just plain free. Just make sure to get their early. Take a look at what we’ve got for you with our Bushwick Daily Northside Music Festival Guide!
