Brooklyn is where it's at. What began in 2009 as a way of putting a spotlight on local music has grown into one of America's premier music festivals. Northside Music gives a stage to the artists you need to know about.  

 

We’ve come to think of Northside as a showcase of the past, present and future incarnations of this so-called “Brooklyn sound” that has in many ways come to define independent music in the new millennium–a snapshot of its current state, with bands that are emerging, those next in line, and those that have paved the way, all rubbing elbows in Williamsburg and Greenpoint for four days in June.
