Northside Festival in McCarren Park

Dirty Projectors played the first of three shows in McCarren Park during Northside Festival, with Jay Som and Kamasi Washington opening up. Dirty Projectors took to the stage for the first public performance since 2013. The band, now carried by Dave Longstreth, brought his funky-pop sound, debuting his newest venture, eponymously titled Dirty Projectors. The show benefitted Open Space Alliance for North Brooklyn (OSA), a nonprofit dedicated to building a stronger North Brooklyn by improving 45 parks and playgrounds and getting neighbors involved in their community parks.  Read more about the show in Brooklyn Magazine.


Miguel took over the stage at McCarren Park, headlining a show with BJ the Chicago Kid and Saro, in another benefit show. Fans came to the park to hear hits like “Coffee”, “Face the Sun”, and  “Candles in the Sun”. The night’s opening acts offered a mellow offset to Miguel’s “high octane” performance .

Thursday, PUP, The Hotelier, Jeff Rosenstock, Tony Molina all came together to lead a punk revival in a free concert on the last day of Northside Festival. Diehard fans joined together to prove that punk isn’t dead, bringing an undeniable energy to McCarren Park.
