The result is a diverse experience that hosts rising local acts alongside big names. Read on for details about Brooklyn's Northside Festival, including lineup info (filled with top indie-rock bands), ticketing links and more.

What is Northside Festival?

Now in its ninth year, Northside is a weeklong Williamsburg-centered festival featuring concerts, film screenings and talks run by Northside Media Group. Similar in focus to the long-running CMJ Festival, Northside utilizes existing venues to host showcase-style lineups around Brooklyn, in addition to presenting outdoor shows in McCarren Park. The festival's bread and butter is indie rock, and this year the big draws in that category include Dirty Projectors, Jay Som, Girlpool and Lower Dens. The lineup also includes inventive electronic music artists such as Elysia Crampton, Total Freedom and Moor Mother.

When is Northside Festival?

This year the fest runs from Wednesday, June 7, 2017, through Sunday, June 11, 2017, with all the music events taking place from Thursday, June 8, through Sunday, June 11.
