Brooklyn is New York’s current reigning hub of creativity and Northside Festival is back to bring it all together for a week this summer. Entering its ninth year, Northside Festival is a music, technology, and innovation festival that occurs every June. This urban festival stretches across 30 venues located in and around Williamsburg, Greenpoint, and Bushwick. It will feature live music performances from some of the most talented underground acts of the moment as well as keynote speakers and panels handling topics ranging from the hottest startups, to media innovation, to talks on design, and much more.

Northside allows you to discover the most exciting music before everyone else. Whether it was Chance the Rapper’s first NYC show or The War on Drugs playing a massive sold out park just a month after Bowery Ballroom, or Brian Wilson playing Pet Sounds in its entirety with special guests… everyone has their own Northside moment. We work hand in hand with local bloggers, record labels, independent promoters, and more to bring together over 300 artists, both emerging and established, to perform on outdoor stages and in the beloved indie clubs scattered throughout north Brooklyn for one massive celebration of the borough’s ongoing artistic life. Northside alumni include: Against Me!, Best Coast, Black Flag, Conor Oberst, Grandmaster Flash, Hinds, Kacey Musgraves, Kool Keith, Mac DeMarco, Mitski, Neko Case, Run the Jewels, Shamir, Sharon Van Etten, Sleigh Bells, Solange, The Sun Ra Arkestra, Tame Impala, tUnE-yArDs, Vince Staples, Wavves, and more.
