On March 4, the Northside Festival announced their initial line-up for 2014.

Bands announced include Beach Fossels, Courtney Barnett, F*** Buttons, Sharon Van Etten, and Titus Andronicus, among others.

Now in its sixth year, The Northside Festival, sponsored by ‘The L Magazine,’ will take place from June 12 through the 19 at venues all over Brooklyn, New York. Originally started in 2009 as a way to showcase the rising culture in Williamsburg, the festival has grown into one of the city’s biggest summer attractions. According to the festival’s website, “hundreds of bands, entrepreneurs, filmmakers, innovators, and over 80,000 fans will converge on Brooklyn over eight days to witness an incredible showcase of what’s next in music, film, entrepreneurship and art.” Broken up into two parts, the music festival (June 12 through 15) and the film festival (June 16 through 19), plus innovation seminars and a tradeshow (both June 12 and 13), the festival calls itself “New York City’s largest and most accessible discovery festival.”

Bands who played the festival last year included Adolescents, Black Flag, The Casualties, Lambchop, Phosphorescent, The So So Glos, Solange, Son Volt, Subhumans, The Toasters, The Walkmen, and ?uestlove (of The Roots).

Also announced are two free, all ages shows in McCarren Park on June 14 and 15. No bands have been announced for these shows yet.

Badges for the festival are on sale now. The festival runs from June 12 through June 19. For more information about the Northside Festival, and to stay up-to-date with more band announcements, visit the festival’s website.
