Northside Festival Badge Pickup Details + Special Deals Announced!

06/10/2011 12:29 PM |

The Northside Festival is in less than a week and badges are flying off the shelves. Yes, shelves! A badge for Northside gives you special access to shows and deals throughout Williamsburg and Greenpoint from June 16-19. You may not have bought your badge, but we don’t hate you. Yet. But if you have, you can pick your badge up at Northside Festival Headquarters at 240 N. 12th Street (between Union and Driggs avenues) starting at noon on Thursday, June 16th.

Badge pickup hours are: Thursday noon-10pm, Friday noon-10pm, Saturday noon-8pm and Sunday noon-5pm.

**To pick up your badge you must bring a photo ID. Badges are non-transferrable and people cannot pick up badges for other people unless specified.

Every venue has a certain percentage of capacity reserved for badge-holders, so we recommend that you get to the shows you want to see as early as possible to give yourself the best chance of getting in. And hey, if you don’t make it, there’s probably 25 other amazing shows going on in a five foot radius from where you’re standing.

And you know your badge gets you way more than just music, right?  There’s a hefty list of great additional perks your badge will get you all over Williamsburg and Greenpoint – read more after the break!
