Brooklynites have flocked to this rowdy weekend of brass, horns and Balkan beats for 32 years, and this year’s edition should be as wild as any of its predecessors. Pace yourself for two late nights of dancing and drinking to the music of more than 50 bands, including the accordion-smashing funk crew Slavic Soul Party!, all-female Macedonian band Niva, and the 12-piece Zlatne Uste Brass Band. During dance breaks, head to the charshiya (market) to pick up fabrics and crafts, and try complimentary delicacies like bureka meat puffs and Vassilopita king’s cake. Pace yourself!
