If it’s finally rooftop party season, the summer music festivals can’t be far behind. Today, two of the biggies, Northside and Governor’s Ball, made some lineup reveals.
First off, Northside returns June 7-10, and it just dropped its initial lineup of shows at clubs like Brooklyn Bazaar and Music Hall of Williamsburg. In the mix are Liz Phair, whose box set Girly-Sound to Guyville comes out May 4; model-turned-rapper Chynna; Mogwai-esque instrumentalists Caspian; indie darlings Deerhoof; woke free jazz outfit Irreversible Entanglements; “post-punk’s most surprising success story,” Protomartyr; Brooklyn neo-punk soul duo Oshun; viral subway musicians Too Many Zooz, and many more. Entry for the club shows will be free with a badge (currently $75 and up) or can be purchased a la carte. Northside also revealed its initial lineup of speakers and panelists, which include a host of reps from media and tech companies. You can see that list below.
