BWSF 2016 represents a true appreciation and celebration of Indie culture. We take an authentic creative approach to create the largest platform possible for artistic presentation without any corporate sponsorships or industry funding – only art and music in the purest form.


Brooklyn Wildlife Summer Festival is an annual diverse and 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. BWSF2016 caters to a new youth culture that is multi-faceted, variegated, ethnically ambiguous and racially interwoven. Black, white, red, brown, gay, straight, trans - whatever color or gender… everyone parties together. We work to give a voice to the disenfranchised, marginalized and uber progressive.

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, Australia, Jamaica, Russia, Japan, Argenitna and more.

The festival attracts individuals who:
• Are seekers, social explorers, tastemakers and enjoy being ahead of the curve.
• Believe old-fashioned business models are outdated and traditional vehicles for communication (TV and Radio) are no longer in tune with the consumer of today.
• Have turned their backs on the status quo and crave progressive thought, art and culture.
• Artists, musicians, young professionals, taste makers, and innovators.
