Pitchfork and October are proud to announce OctFest, a new one-day craft beer and music festival set to take place on September 9 at the Brooklyn Hangar in Sunset Park, Brooklyn. Guided by Voices, Okkervil River, the Sadies, Charles Bradley & His Extraordinaires, Kilo Kish, and the Pains of Being Pure at Heart are all lined up to perform, with more artists to be announced in the weeks to come. Forty breweries from around the world will provide a selection of contemporary beers at the festival, including local favorites like Peekskill, Threes, Sixpoint, and Braven, as well as international offerings such as Cloudwater (England), Radeberger (Germany), and Weihenstephan (Germany).
OctFest will be split into two sessions, featuring different music and brewery lineups. The day session will run from 1:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. Eastern and the evening session will run from 7:00-11:00 p.m. Tickets are $60, include unlimited tastings, and are on sale now—find them here. October is a project led by Pitchfork’s Slow Focus Studio and Good Beer Hunting.
