Welcome back lovely dazzlers! This is part 2 of my experience at the Northside Festival in Brooklyn, NY. If you haven’t heard of the Northside Festival then check out part 1 here to get the details! Let’s get into it from where we left off in the last post!
After a long day of walking around exploring the shops and art at the block party, it was time for a late lunch/dinner! I read good reviews about Alls Well Pub on Bedford Ave and let me tell you it did not disappoint! Alls Well serves breakfast until 4 pm so I made it just in time for some huevos rancheros with crema and cotija cheese. It was very spicy but I ate every last bit and cooled off with a grapefruit Paloma!
After dinner, we headed to McCarren Park and got there around 4:15. To my surprise, there wasn’t much of a line yet so we were able to get amazing spots (there was no seating just first come first serve). Inside the venue, there were food trucks, ice cream, and drinks being served. They were also selling mats just in case you wanted to sit on the ground at any time during the concert. I was lucky enough to have the Gypsy 05 Boho Beach Roundie I got from my spring FabFitFun box with me! It was a perfect size and the boho vibe was perfect for a festival cute!
Time for Music!
The show took a while to get started but at 6:30 the first artist took the stage. Saro is a indie pop artist from LA who was performing on the East Coast for the first time. You can check out his EP In Loving Memory here!
BJ the Chicago Kid
The next artist to take the stage was BJ the Chicago Kid. He performed his r&b hits and did a few covers for all of the r&b lovers in the crowd (love me some old Usher hits). You can listen to his latest here. BJ the Chicago Kid really got the crowd singing and groovin along!
The last performer was Miguel! I have been a fan of Miguel since around 2010 so I was really excited to see him live. I just loved his energy and his vocals (he is such a good singer!!). If you haven’t heard Miguel’s music before you should definitely try it out! One of the reasons I am such a big fan is because he is not your typical R&B singer. I would say his music is based in soul but he blends in elements of rock, hip-hop, and funk. It’s hard to put a label on his music because it has so many influences. One thing is for sure he is a rock star on stage! If you’re interested in hearing his music check him out here. I also have some videos of the event on my Instagram.
I will for sure be looking out for Miguel’s next tour or performance dates. He is one of my favorite artists and after seeing him perform live I am an even bigger fan! If you haven’t heard Miguel’s music click here for a taste!
Music festivals and concerts are some of my favorite things to do in the summertime and this one did not disappoint! What artists do you enjoy to see in concert? Have you been to any festivals this season?
