Northside Festival 2013

Mass Appeal’s Guide to Winning at Northside Festival 2013


If the thought of going to see another synth-heavy, “disco-inspired” dj/producer/pop act makes you want to get the hell out of dodge, don’t lace up your kicks and grab your overnight bag just yet. We’re hooking you up with a guide to all things good at the 2013 Northside Festival. From open bar happy hours and free events, to tech demos and schmoozing, as well as the best in film and new music, we’ve got your weekend in Brooklyn on lock.


Now in its fifth year running, the annual Northside Festival will take over the forward thinking, uber-hip Brooklyn neighborhoods of Greenpoint and Williamsburg for one (extended) weekend. The eight day fest will host over 80,000 participants, and showcase what’s next in film, music, technology and entrepreneurship at various venues all over the Northside.

Why You Should Care:

With over 300 musical acts spanning the genre gamut, the fest has become one of the best events for discovering new and local talent. As a special treat, this year’s attendees will witness the reformation of legendary punk band Black Flag, marking the first NYC performance in 26 years of founder Greg Ginn’s iconic band, featuring Jealous Again era vocalist Ron Reyes.

As part of Northside festival, Brooklyn will also play host to the vibrant innovation community for The Northside Entrepreneurship + Technology conference. Hundreds of entrepreneurs and tech startups, including the founders of Kickstarter,, OKCupidUber founderTravis Kalanick, and TLC Commissioner David Yassky will descend on the city for demos, panel discussions, hackathons and more. The sessions will take place between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m. at the Wythe Hotel and Brooklyn Brewery. NExT’s Expo (free with RSVP) will take place on Thursday and Friday in McCarren Park.

For film and art buffs, on Saturday from 6-10 p.m. Northside Townhall will unveil Five Windows, a multi-channel video and sculpture installation presented at street level at Northside Townhall. Northside’s official film portion of the festival begins June 17th and will be showing 40+ films in addition to announcing the winner of the Northside Film DIY Competition and the $10,000 prize package.
