Northside Festival is upon us and the schedule of events is massive! Not only are there music concerts, there is art, film and an entrepreneurial panel. If last year’s murky bike ride from Northside’s free booze “lounge” to a concert at St. Cecelia’s is any indication of how this weekend is going to go, I better stock up on B Vitamins now. While you can buy badges, there are many pay at the door and free concerts and art events. We put together a guide of concerts and events that will be a blast so navigating the huge festival will be easy for you.
