ABOUT BWSF 2018:
Brooklyn Wildlife Summer Festival is an annual, diverse & synergistic, indoor and outdoor festival featuring some of the best Independent talent from New York and beyond. The goal of the event is to galvanize the Indie arts and music community and represent its flourishing cultural growth within Brooklyn, with a special focus on Bushwick. BWSF 2018 caters to a new youth culture that is multi-faceted, variegated, ethnically ambiguous and racially interwoven - everyone parties together. We work to give a voice to the disenfranchised, marginalized and artistically progressive. BWSF 2018 is a true appreciation and celebration of Indie culture. We take an authentic approach to create the largest platform possible for artistic presentation without any corporate sponsorships or industry funding – only art, music and culture in the purest form.

BWSF focuses on performers in the Brooklyn arts and entertainment scene, consequently, due to the large presence of international artists in Brooklyn, the festival also includes performers and participants from all around the world. There will be representation from UK, Germany, Denmark, China, Jamaica, Russia, Japan, Cuba and more.
