Brooklyn, New York -- There's more to festival season than 3-day, large-scale, break-the-bank music festivals of the Coachella, Bonnaroo, and Lollapalooza variety. Take Bushwick's Out In The Streets Festival - a home-grown, 2-day event that'll cost you less than a dinner and a movie.
This year, Out In The Streets Festival has booked Brooklyn-based headliners A Place to Bury Strangers
(bring your ear plugs for these guys), Body Language
(whose genre is SEX), and Hunters
as well as pop musician for the unpopular Cities Aviv
of Memphis. Additional acts include Modern Rivals
, Ski Lodge
, Tiny Victories
, What Cheer? Brigade
, and Monogold
on Saturday plus Weyes Blood
, Starlight Girls
, Psychic Twin
, and Not Blood Paint
on Sunday. You can view the full lineup on the festival flyer below or in schedule-form via the website
Out In The Streets Festival is a clear amalgamation of its founders and organizers. David Teller of BirdDog Productions
is known for curating events in unconventional locations like rooftops, alleyways, local groceries, and public parks. Supercrush Studio
is a production company made up of music promoters and storytellers. Lastly, the festival's music blog sponsor The Sky Report
is known for their curation and focus on forward-thinking new artists shaping the music for a future generation.
This combination can be seen most notably in the lineup but also in the festival's unique home at the Vander-Ende Onderdonk House. This Ridgewood-located house is the oldest Dutch Colonial stone house in New York City and holds a place in history due to its use as a marker during the 1769 settlement of the boundary between Bushwick in Kings County and Newtown in Queens County. History aside, the house includes 2 acres of park land that will host Out In The Streets' music, art, food vendors, and giant slip-n-slide. Yes, a giant slip-n-slide.

. A 2-Day Pass goes for $25 and includes free entry to the afterparty; 1-Day Tickets range from $15-$18 depending on your day of choice; and entry to Saturday's afterparty at Radio Bushwick is $5.
