  • Neighbors

    We apologize if neighbors experience noise in relation to NorthSide. It is important to understand that it is never our intention to be a nuisance to anyone – on the contrary, it is our goal to create a city festival that creates joy and good experiences.

    Since we are a festival which is based in the city, we do not have the option of distributing compensational tickets to neighbors, as that would mean a lot of tickets. We will of course keep within our authorization, which means that the music can be expected to stop around 2am Friday-Saturday and at 12pm Sunday.

    We hope you understand.
