One of the best parts of every summer is Northside Festival's annual offering of outdoor concerts, small-venue showcases and copious day parties. And judging by the initial lineup, the 2017 edition should be a good one. The north Brooklyn fest, which takes place June 7–11, will feature outdoor shows at McCarren Park headlined by R&B singer Miguel, art-pop outfit Dirty Projectors and post-hardcore vets Thursday. There's plenty to like with the other announced acts as well, with a roster that includes jazz bandleader Kamasi Washington, rising indie-rock act Vagabon, ambient composer William Basinski and Lower Dens...performing songs from ABBA's Gold: Greatest Hits (!).

Look for showcases curated by Pitchfork, The Creative Independent and others, and special shows including a 33 1/3rd covers show and a 10th anniversary celebration from local label Sacred Bones. There's also an "Innovation" element of the festival, with panels, lectures, film screenings and more.

Tickets are on sale now, with early-bird special currently running.

Check out the full list of announced acts below.
