There tends to be a lot of chatter this time of the year regarding summer festivals from all corners of the world. With all of this craziness and excitement, we’d like to remind you there’s a five-day event in June that draws all of the attention right here to Brooklyn, a festival unlike any of the others. Northside Festival’s presentation of the future of music, innovation, and content transforms the entire north side of the borough into a sprawling urban festival that takes over Williamsburg, Greenpoint, and Bushwick.
We here at Brooklyn Magazine are excited to share that the beginning of the rollout for Northside, organized by our sister company Northside Media Inc, has arrived—and will continue until the festival’s kickoff on June 7. Badge sales (available here) began today at 9am, with flash sale prices in effect for 24 hours. That means $70 for Music badges, $249 for Innovation badges, and $299 for a Premium badge granting entry to both Music and Innovation events (subject to venue capacity, of course). After this 24-hour period, Early Bird prices will begin.
Northside Innovation, which begins the festival with a three-day period in Williamsburg (June 7-9), is all about discovering the next big thing, and bringing together some of the best minds in the world on emerging tech, media innovations, and way more. Past speakers have included huge names of the tech world, such as Travis Kalanick of Uber, Marc Mathieu of Samsung, and Dan Schulman of PayPal. This year’s lineup will surely boast yet another exciting assortment of names, touching ground on subjects that have not been breached before. Additionally, Northside’s Content festival—which featured creators, directors, brands and platforms uncovering what’s next in original video content— is now taking place on dedicated stages within the larger Northside Innovation festival.
