It's festival season, and we are HYPE, y'all. Many naive folks think that the west coast is the best coast when it comes to music fests, but they are waaay wrong.
The only problem with festival season here in NYC is simple: how the f*ck are we supposed to afford these tickets? Your problem gets even worse if you're not lucky enough to be NYC-based... sorry, but we are not known for our cheap travel and accommodations.
So what are we supposed to do? Give up brunch? Seamless? Okay, so basically, we spend too much money on food, and we're not about to change our habits.
Lucky for you, we're sending one lucky couple (or BFFS, you do you) with not just two premium passes to Northside Festival, but also hooking you guys up with airfare to NYC, and a 2-night stay at the Grand Hyatt New York (attached to Grand Central).
We've teamed up with some pretty cool dudes and dudettes from Northside Festival, Need 2 Know, Brooklyn Magazine, and Grand Hyatt New York to put together this package that lets two lucky people experience Northside Festival as it should be.
You've just gotta enter to win right here.
In case you're not hip to the times, Northside Festival is Brooklyn's annual weeklong showcase celebrating "music, film, food, ideas, and entrepreneurship," hosted in venues that span throughout Williamsburg and Greenpoint.
So if you're just turning out for one festival this summer, Northside should seriously be high on your list– you can expect not only killer tunes, but also inside looks at the next big startups, dope visual content, and of course, some seriously delish noms.
Your premium badges will grant you access to aaaaalll the f*cking events– all 300 bands, all 150 speakers, as well as all the exclusives and parties. There's seriously no better way to experience the Northside Festival.
You can check out their schedule of events on their website. There's pretty much something– or multiple somethings– for everyone, whether your jam is music, tech, television, video, storytelling, podcasts, or any combination of the above.
A few of their notable speakers include peeps from The Fader, Tribeca Film Institute, VIMEO, House of Yes, SNL's Sasheer Zamata, Kirsten Gillibrand, Buzzfeed's Ben Smith, and if that's not enough, check out this fire music lineup:
What could you possibly be waiting for?
