The Deli's Guide to Northside Festival 2018 ft. El Silver Cabs, The Rizzos, Def.GRLS, Huck & More

Every year, emerging artists flock to Brooklyn for Northside Festival — the annual showcase that also happens to be New York City’s longest-running music and innovation festival. Starting on June 7, the festival will be celebrating its tenth anniversary with events scattered across Williamsburg, Greenpoint, and Bushwick. With over 300 bands performing (many simultaneously,) creating a schedule of shows can be quite overwhelming. That’s why The Deli NYC is here to help out! Below is a list of some of our critic’s picks, a multi-genre and multi-venue selection of NYC-based artists including everything from the jangly garage rock of El Silver Cabs to the R&B of Gemma. Still can’t decide where to go? Stream a playlist of the artists’ top songs below. - Lilly Milman (Pictured, a photo of El Silver Cabs by Jeanette D. Moses)
