Northside Festival is celebrating its 10th Anniversary this upcoming weekend. The Brooklyn festival is stacked with over 300 artists and 150 speakers on innovation at more than 30 venues across New York’s premiere borough for the arts and community alike. With hundreds of artists, it can feel beyond overwhelming to choose which showcases to catch this year, so we decided to create a guide to help you navigate the expansive festival. You can thank us later.
Music kicks off on Thursday night. To celebrate a decade of music, Northside doesn’t disappoint for their first day. Soccer Mommy opens for Liz Phair at National Sawdust, Heater and Holy Wave join forces at Alphaville and Snail Mail headlines a sold out set at Music Hall of Williamsburg. Through Sunday evening, countless local and national acts will take on stages all across Brooklyn bringing a sea of music to city that never sleeps. Below we covered all of the sets that we’re anxiously awaiting!
