Up All Night – The Brooklyn Night Bazaar Returns To Williasmburg

Up All Night – The Brooklyn Night Bazaar Returns To Williasmburg

For the second year, the Brooklyn Night Bazaar returns to Williamsburg for a month long nocturnal celebration of music, food and local makers. Inspired by the night markets across Asia, the people behind the Brooklyn Night Bazaar bring together more than 200 of the borough’s most creative independent vendors, musicians, chefs, artists, breweries and wineries. Aside from the excitement of partying and shopping at night, where these guys truly succeed and stand out from the proliferation of markets and fairs this season is their impressive array of creative partners (yours truly enthusiastically included!)

Not only is the roster impressive, the events are free. Yup. Free. Check out the musical genius of Fader, Bust Magazine, Hype Machine, The Deli Magazine, Insound, Kanine Records, FatCat Record and Impose with Kyp Malone (TV On The Radio), Pains Of Being Pure At Heart, Black Dice, MEN (feat JD Samson of Le Tigre), Ayshay (Fatima Al Quadiri), French Horn Rebellion, Pictureplane, Emily Wells, Devin, and more to be announced.

And no night party is complete without interactive light installations. Nuit Blanche New York (NBNY) will be art directing the show. Get in the mood with their sizzle reel.
