The 7th annual Northside Festival will take over Brooklyn this June 8th-14th, featuring performances by Run The Jewels, Built to Spill, Best Coast, Sleigh Bells, Against Me!, The Very Best, Blonde Redhead, Rhye, Femi Kuti & The Positive Force, Zola Jesus, and more.

Billed as “week-long celebration of discovery in the fields of music, innovation, and film”, the event has a massive schedule of programming featuring professionals from the worlds of start-ups, technologists, entrepreneurs, filmmakers and artists. So when you need a break from bands, you can go see reps from the likes of LinkedIn, The New York Times, and Etsy talk business. Or, you could kick back and check out over 50 different documentaries and/or short films. Your call.
