Little by little, the folks behind the annual Brooklyn-based Northside Festival have been revealing details about this summer's edition. Earlier this month, they released the first round of names from the lineup, including Sharon Van Etten and Titus Andronicus; now they've announced that Chvrches will play a free gig in McCarren Park. The Scottish electropop trio is scheduled to perform Sunday, June 15 at 4pm. It's one of two big gratis shows that weekend; Saturday's act has yet to be revealed.

So how do you become one of the lucky 6,000 ticket holders? Admission is first-come, first-served, and you have to R.S.V.P. Sign up here (for the price of an e-mail address) to be notified when the Chvrches R.S.V.P. opens; either way, we recommend queuing up early. If you want guaranteed entry, you'll have to buy a festival badge (starting at $65).
