I recently had the chance to attend the Northside Festival in Brooklyn. There were talks about technology and content during the day and events at night. I attended a block party in Mccarren Park where hip-hop legend Grand Master Flash was the headlining act. Although I was super excited to witness one of the founding members of hip-hop in action, I was also very interested to check out his opening acts: Radamiz, I.O.D and Kweku Collins.
Many music festivals are located in outskirts, wildernesses and boonies with the idea of creating a relocated community away from the normalcy of city life. Even city festivals usually take place at a venue that though proximal to city life, makes festival-goers feel as if they are in a timeless and placeless dimension.
