posted by Laura Baker-Finch on July 22, 2014

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 RivalsHondurasSki LodgeTiny VictoriesWhat Cheer? Brigade, and Monogold on Saturday plus Weyes BloodNeighborsStarlight GirlsPsychic 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.

Tickets to Out In The Streets Festival are available via Eventbrite. 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.
