Brooklyn Night Bazaar
(December 10, 2011) - Inspired by night markets across Asia, Brooklyn Night Bazaar returns for the holidays, bringing together over one hundred of the borough's most creative independent vendors, musicians, chefs, artists and breweries to showcase their talent inside 149 Kent Avenue, a massive 40,000 sq foot warehouse on the Williamsburg, Brooklyn waterfront from December 15 - 17, 5pm - 1am. Visit COMPANY's booth and see what our Limited Edition Prints look like in person! The event is free, but music events are ticketed - buy your ticket here.
A confluence of the public market, art fair, food festival and concert, the Brooklyn Night Bazaar showcases the best in the New York cultural scene while creating a platform to support small businesses and independent creatives through dialogue, community and commerce. Building upon the success of the inaugural Brooklyn Night Market, which hosted over 5000 revelers at the Dekalb Market this October, the Bazaar crew is pleased to present a stellar lineup of performers.
Opening night kicks off with a DJ set by James Murphy (LCD Soundsystem) for the DFA opening night party. Venerated music blog Brooklyn Vegan curates our second night of music, and Brooklyn's finest, The Hold Steady, headlines our finale bash on December 17. The Bazaar's performance venue will be ticketed while the market will be free tothe public.
The Bazaar reimagines the market as an immersive environment with the renowned architect Julien De Smedt who transforms the space with custom furnishings and sculptural lighting features as well as a floor plan inspired Lars von Trier's Dogville. Nuit Blanche NY, founders of the Bring to Light Festival in Greenpoint, curate video art projections, live cinema and VJ sets that transform the warehouse into a winder wonderland.
