OctFest promises to be a one-of-a-kind event featuring brewed beers from all over the world plus the musical stylings of Vince Staples, Nile Rodgers, and more.

Beer, beats, and life connect in the most interesting way as Pitchfork partners up with October, a leading beer culture website, to hold the second annual OctFest in New York City. Following the success of the inaugural event in Williamsburg, Brooklyn last year, OctFest has relocated to Governors Island, and promises a two-day extravaganza of one-of-a-kind beer, food, and music.

Headlining the second annual effort will be Vince Staples and The Flaming Lips. Overall, OctFest will be an expanded musical experience with performances from Nile Rodgers & CHIC, BADBADNOTGOOD, Saba, Madison McFerrin, Yo La Tengo, and more.

In addition to all those great acts, OctFest also boasts a curated food program and 70+ breweries from more than 15 countries around the world.

“With the debut of OctFest last year, we found a unique alchemy,” said Adam Krefman, senior director, festivals and activations at Pitchfork. “It was an intimate, accessible event, pulling in the best of both beer and music festivals. More than that, we found a welcoming, diverse audience and it inspired us to go bigger and add a lot more music, food, and of course, breweries.”
