Now in its seventh year, Brooklyn's Northside Festival has become synonymous with "what's next" in music, innovation, and film. From June 11 to 14, Northside will take over Brooklyn with 400+ bands, 150+ speakers, and 50+ films. Attendees from as close as Williamsburg and as far as Amsterdam will be able to say, "I saw it here first."

Despite the chilly climes and mountains of snow we've had the last few months, we're already gearing up for summer. The just-announced lineup for Northside 2015 includes Run the Jewels, Neko Case, Best Coast, Built to Spill, and many more must-see acts, as well as speakers from companies like Mashable, Fortune magazine, Yo, and FanDuel. Plus, 30 performance slots are being reserved for Sonicbids artists!

Want to play the fest, but have no idea what to expect or how to prepare? We've got you. Here are five tips for surviving Northside Festival this June.
