Get ready for a Dirty weekend!
Brooklyn indie rockers the Dirty Projectors will headline this year’s Northside Festival, which is set to take over McCarren Park and more than 30 venues across Williamsburg, Greenpoint, and Bushwick from June 7–11, organizers announced on Thursday.
The 2017 incarnation of the festival, which showcases a mix of up and coming and well-known artists, will also boast performances from rhythm and blues crooner Miguel and jazz saxophonist Kamasi Washington, who will open for the Dirty Projectors on June 9 along with rock outfit Jay Som.
The festival will culminate with a free show headlined by emo rock band Thursday on June 11 — that is a band called “Thursday” playing on a Sunday — at McCarren Park.
Tickets for some of the individual shows are on sale now and so are all-access passes that give attendees access to all the McCarren Park gigs and venues across the five-day music extravaganza.
More acts will be announced in the coming months.
