Northside Festival 2018


Without Northside Fest, there would be no Brooklyn Magazine- it was the festival that led to the creation of our publication, so we've set aside a limited release of discounted Northside badges because we want to celebrate with you!

For 10 years, Northside has prided itself as a music discovery festival that’s created by Brooklyn, for Brooklyn—Solange headlining her first U.S. festival; Chance the Rapper playing his first New York show in a packed Polish disco; Brian Wilson performing Pet Sounds for 6,000 fans in the heart of McCarren Park. Last year’s headlining acts included sold-out shows by Miguel, Dirty Projectors and Thursday and emerging bands Girlpool, Jay Som, Big Thief and electronic producer Jlin.

Looking forward to this year, the Innovation conference will bring together business and thought leaders to participate in keynote talks, interviews, panels, pitch competitions, immersive VR activations and parties. Last year’s speakers included Mayor Bill de Blasio, Senator Kirsten Gillibrand, SNL’s Sasheer Zamata, hotelier Ian Schrager, writer Piper Kerman and Kickstarter CEO Yancey Stickler. The (first-ever) theme will be “Future Making”, highlighting the ideas and people that are driving change in our world, as well as how we can use this new thinking to make ourselves more future-proof.
