The music portion of the Northside Festival—the North Brooklyn celebration of music, art, film, and (in a nod to Brooklyn’s many small businesses) entrepreneurship—will take place at various venues throughout Kings County from June 14 to 17. Participating venues include the usual Brooklyn rock suspects as well as Williamsburg Park, a former industrial lot on N. Kent Avenue where this summer’s waterfront concerts will take place.
The Wu-Tang Clan’s GZA, who announced the fest yesterday with Brooklyn borough president Marty Markowitz, will perform Liquid Swords with the sprawling, genre-bending Latin orchestra Grupo Fantasma. Other bands that have so far been announced—Northside organizers claim there will be more than 300 in total—below.
