Get pumped, Brooklyn music lovers: the lineup for Brooklyn’s Northside Festival has been announced.

The festival will go from June 13 to June 20 and feature 350 bands and over 40 films.

This year’s festival will kick off with an Entrepreneurship and Technology Expo (NExT) on June 13 and 14.

A free outdoor public innovation expo will take place in McCarren Park and will be open to the public free of charge, and then an entrepreneurship conference will be held at Brooklyn Bowl, Brooklyn Brewery, and the Wythe Hotel.

Speakers will include Charles Adler, the co-founder of Kickstarter, and Jason Goodman, the CEO and co-founder of 3rd Ward, among many others.

Word is also out about a mysterious demonstration that festival sponsor Jameson will be conducting, but specifics are hazy so far. It will involve the man responsible for Jameson Black Barrel’s flame-charred barrels, a fifth-generation Master Cooper named Ger uckley, flying in from Middleton Distillery in Ireland.

Two free, ticketed outdoor shows in McCarren Park on June 15 and 16 have been announced. The June 15 headliner will be The Walkmen. June 16′s main act is yet to be named.

Other musical acts appearing at the festival are Mac DeMarco, Black Flag, Har Mar Superstar, Lambchop, Lower, Lushlife, The Luyas, White Fence, Ava Luna, Chelsea Wolfe, Dead Stars, Destruction Unit, Kisses, The Karma Exchange, Rush Midnight, Swans, Twin Sister, The Veda Rays, The Void Union, Intronaut, Jonathan Toubin, Crazy Pills, Iceage, Drunken Rampage, The Courtesy Tier, The Casualties, and WHY? among many, many others.

Northside Film released its screening lineup, which includes a documentary about Le Tigre called “Who Took the Bomp? Le Tigre on Tour.” Kerthy Fix and Kathleen Hanna will be onsite for a Q&A after the screening.

Early bird badges can be purchased for $65 through April 30.
