Northside Festival Returns in 2014, Badges Now On Sale
Get your dancing shoes on and your badges at the ready; Northside Festival is returning for 2014. Now in its sixth year, Northside is back to showcase a variety of up-and-coming local and international talent including musicians, filmmakers, and industry innovators.
Set to run from June 12th-19th, the Northside Festival actually serves as an umbrella for a series of arts events: Northside Music (June 12-15), Northside Innovation (June 12-13), and Northside Film (June 16-19).
This year’s Northside Music will feature a lineup of over 400 bands, set to perform in locations across Williamsburg and Greenpoint. Some musicians have already been revealed, including Sharon Van Etten, Fuck Buttons, Titus Andronicus, Beach Fossils, Courtney Barnett, Omar Souleyman, Dan Croll, Eagulls, and Mas Ysa.
Northside Innovation, which presents a series of business panels, will feature Etsy’s Chad Dickerson, Vimeo’s Kerry Trainor, Curbed’s Soraya Darabi and many more. A large trade show will also be held in McCarren Park, featuring exhibitors like The End Records, and Gilt Groupe.
Northside Film, the final element of the fest, is currently accepting submissions for their DIY Film Competition (through March 10). The films will be judged by a panel of industry greats including actress Parker Posey, and receive a hefty prize package.
