Northside Festival 2014
Time Out says
Friendly warning! We're working hard to be accurate. But these are unusual times, so please check that events are still happening.
Most exciting five acts: Sharon Van Etten; Courtney Barnett; Titus Andronicus; Omar Souleyman; Beach Fossils In the five years since it began, The L Magazine's hip summer fest has gone from a small showcase for up-and-coming acts to a Brooklyn version of SXSW, with concerts, a film festival and an "innovation" component for techies. But we're still most excited about the music: Building off past successes (in 2013, headliners included the Walkmen, Solange and Black Flag), this year will feature performances from Brooklyn troubadour Sharon Van Etten, Jersey punk-rockers Titus Andronicus, prolific Syrian singer Omar Souleyman, and many more. (And we mean many: Approximately 400 acts will play during the music portion's four-day run.)
