Northside Festival 2016: A Guide

northside
Northside has been growing larger and larger every year, despite being confined to North Brooklyn. Originally a music-focused festival, it’s been gradually expanding its sights on media content and technology. Showcases are spread throughout the northern Brooklyn, in tiny communal spaces like Muchmore’s and the piece to the headliner carrying McCarren Park.
Sifting through the long list of showcases and shows, here are our staff’s recommended shows you’d want to consider catching.
