As far as kickoffs to summer go, you can do a lot worse than spending a weekend saturated in the music, art and street style that takes over north Brooklyn for the annual Northside Festival. This year’s fest wrapped up last night and featured four days of events spread across Bushwick, Greenpoint and Williamsburg. Musical highlights included the reunited Wolf Parade rocking a free show at McCarren Park on Thursday night and Brian Wilson bringing the beach to the city on Sunday and King Khan and the Shrines showing us that every band needs more capes.

On Sunday, as the nation reeled from the news in Orlando, Brooklynites expressed their feelings in paintings and other street art in the middle of Bedford Avenue, which was shut down for the weekend for the annual Williamsburg Walks in conjunction with the festival. Here are some of the best scenes from the weekend; stay tuned for our wrap up of breakout bands from the fest to watch, coming shortly.
