The Northside Festival is finally coming to an end, and VH1 is going out with a bang by hosting three nights of “The Best of VH1 rockDocs”. But what’s a movie screening without a party, right? Last night, some of the festivals stars attended the exclusive VH1 “rockDocs” party at the Wythe Hotel.
The Northside Festival kicked off in Brooklyn earlier this week covering the best in new Film, Innovation and Music. VH1 and Palladia are teaming up to host four nights of live music for the festival. The first two nights were Thursday and Friday, hosted at Williamsburg’s famous venue The Knitting Factory. On Thursday there were live performances by rising rock band out of the UK Syd Arthur, plus winning Make A Band Famous act Fancy Reagan and many others. Then on Friday, legendary music producer and new member of the VH1 family Linda Perry curated a special showcase featuring her own favorite emerging artists like Perfect Pussy, Shilpa Ray and more. Check out photos from both musical nights in our gallery above.
Bleachers took to the stage in Brooklyn’s McCarren Park yesterday, brightening up the otherwise gloomy and grey afternoon with an amped up hour-long set! Their long-awaited debut Strange Desire isn’t due to hit shelves until July 15th, but we were treated to a vibrant sneak peek from .fun guitarist Jack Antonoff‘s new musical project. The performance not only helped kick off this year’s Northside Music Festival, but was part of the finale for VH1′s Make A Band Famous!
Get your festival gear ready because VH1 + Palladia are taking over the Northside Festival. During the 8-day long event, VH1 will be hosting the Make A Band Famous competition and screening some of this year’s best Rock-umentaries, Palladia will be taking over The Knitting Factory from June 12-15, and much more.
As we get closer and closer to summer, we know you’ll be filling your calendar with all the music fests your heart desires. Palladia, VH1, and Northside Festival already have a spot on your list, but now we’ve made the shindig even more amazing by adding a bunch of your favorite artists to the lineup.
It may only be March but festival season is starting to heat up and promising to give fans another excellent summer of live music and long-lasting memories. This year, VH1 is teaming up with the Northside Festival, Brooklyn’s very own South by Southwest. Much like it’s Austin counterpart, the up-and-coming festival brings together Film, Innovation and Music conferences for eight days in June. In its sixth year, VH1 will be taking over the famed The Knitting Factory in Brooklyn, where bands will perform. Fans will also have a chance to screen VH1 Rock Docs at Nighthawk Theater or participate in a VH1 driven panel.
