Northside Festival: Music Badge
About Music Badge
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 it’s 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!, Beirut, Best Coast, Black Flag, Brian Wilson (performing Pet Sounds), Built to Spill, Chance the Rapper, CHVRCHES, Conor Oberst, Courtney Barnett, Deafheaven, Frankie Cosmos, Grandmaster Flash, Guided by Voices, GZA, HEALTH, Hinds, Iceage, Kacey Musgraves, Kool Keith, Kurt Vile, Lambchop, Luna, Mac DeMarco, Mitski, Neko Case, Phosphorescent, Real Estate, Run the Jewels, Shamir, Sharon Van Etten, Sleigh Bells, Solange, The Sun Ra Arkestra, Swans, Tame Impala, Thee Oh Sees, Tune-Yards, Viet Cong, Vince Staples, The Walkmen, The War on Drugs, Wavves, Wolf Parade, Woods, and more.
