Northside Festival, the celebration of all things Brooklyn that last year encompassed music, art, and an entrepreneurship conference, will now include retail. The pop-up gurus behind Storefront are now accepting applications for six spots in what they're billing as a "pop-up village" that will run for the first four days of the festival inside McCarren Park.
Our passion for helping makers is synonymous with that of Northside Festival's," said Storefront CEO and co-founder Erik Eliason, "and we can't wait to see the innovation and energy that brands will bring to this year's event."
These won't be any run-of-the-mill festival booths—vendors will be able to customize a 400-square-foot space to sell their wares. Applications for the spaces are available here, and you've got just two weeks left before the deadline.
