Northside Innovation 2017 takes over Williamsburg

Beyond South Brooklyn

One week every June, over 100,000 creative and cultural trendsetters converge in Brooklyn to uncover the future of music, innovation, and content with over 350 bands, 200 speakers, media personalities and content creators.

The Northside Festival encompasses a constellation of venues – small clubs, outdoor spaces, boutique hotels, and more. A single day might include discovering your favorite band, the next big startup, or the best visual content you’ve experienced all year.


Northside Innovation is where the best and brightest names in the global innovation community come to discover the next big thing through a series of panel talks, keynotes, pitch competitions, and networking events.

There’s no place like Northside to develop your professional network and connect with colleagues who will transform your career or your business. Northside Innovation will feature talks on emerging tech, media innovations, the future of original video content, startup pitch competitions, talks on design, tactical workshops for entrepreneurs, and cultural discussions with Brooklyn influencers.



Northside allows you to discover the most exciting music before everyone else. Whether it was Chance the Rapper’s first NYC show or The War on Drugs playing a massive sold out park just a month after Bowery Ballroom, or Brian Wilson playing Pet Sounds in its entirety with special guests… everyone has their own Northside moment. We work hand in hand with local bloggers, record labels, independent promoters, and more to bring together over 300 artists, both emerging and established, to perform on outdoor stages and in the beloved indie clubs scattered throughout north Brooklyn for one massive celebration of the borough’s ongoing artistic life.



Northside Block Party takes place on Saturday and Sunday during our community event Williamsburg Walks, when Bedford Avenue is transformed into a creative oasis. Covering 13 city blocks, Williamsburg’s mecca is reimagined, giving the neighborhood the opportunity to stroll the street to see art installations and live music, enjoy local food, and relax on the lawn.


Because Brooklyn is the epicentre of a creative movement changing the world. Come to Northside and bring your taste, your company, your idea, your innovation, your excitement, and your passion. There are bands, colleagues, and ideas looking to connect with you.
