Ah to sit in a field at a music festival and soak in the chill vibes. Wait, we have an even better one. Ah to sit in a field at a music festival and soak in the chill vibes and not squint at a performer on a video screen. Is this possible? Yes, you’ll be able to do that this summer, because Out in the Streets, the only music festival that takes place in a field on the Brooklyn/Queens border has announced they’ll be back at the Vander Ende-Onderdonk House on August 1 and 2.

Out in the Streets, a two-day music festival that takes place on the Bushwick/Ridgewood border at the landmarked Onderdonk House is that rare festival New Yorkers can go to in which there’s a field of grass to lie down in or frolic on without having to travel long distances for it. You can get to Out in the Streets with the subway, or a bike, or hell even walking if that’s what you really want to do.

The festival also usually has a lineup of some of the best up-and-coming acts from both Brooklyn and the area surrounding it colloquially known as “Not Brooklyn,” good food from Bushwick-area restaurants and access to it comes cheap for a festival people know and love. This year, early bird tickets will run you just $25, which if you break it down further is just $12.50 each day. Man that’s cheap. You can’t even see two overblown, CGI-filled halfhearted franchise summer sequels for just $25.
