Brooklyn Music & Art Festival Northside

This year, The L Magazine will host the first annual Northside Music and Arts Festival, a four-day celebration of New York City’s independent music and art scene, taking place from June 11-14 at over fifty music venues and galleries throughout the Williamsburg and Greenpoint neighborhoods of Brooklyn. For the music portion of the festival, The L will present a number of shows at the area venues. But Northside is primarily a collaborative event, with dozens of the most influential NYC-based music businesses (from record labels to blogs to radio stations) having curatorial control over their own showcases. The L has also teamed up with the Williamsburg Gallery Association to incorporate Brooklyn’s most renowned galleries, planning exhibitions and various events over the course of the weekend.

Some of the music highlights include: Brightblack Morning Light, Mariee Sioux, The Hold Steady, Ólöf Arnalds, Sharon Van Etten, Drink Up Buttercup, John Vanderslice, Sunset Rubdown, Asobi Seksu, Shilpa Ray & Her Happy Hookers and many many more.

The Festival will kick off with an opening night party, featuring live performances, special guests, drink specials and much, much more. Stay tuned for more details, right here on
