Last month, we broke the news that OctFest was returning to New York City as a bigger, better beer and music festival on September 8 and 9. Hopefully, you were excited by this. Maybe, you already bought tickets. If not, allow us to sweeten the deal. Joining the likes of Vince Staples and the Flaming Lips are just-announced musical performers NAO, Girlpool, Kamaiyah and others.

In addition to the full music lineup, which you can peep right here, OctFest brings you a simply irresistible assortment of 90 breweries from around the world. Newly announced domestic brewers include Lord Hobo Brewing Company, Rogue Ales and Live Oak; while the United Kingdom’s Wild Beer Co., Australia’s 4 Pines Brewing Company and China’s Boxing Cat Brewery join the list of breweries representing 20 different countries.

It’s all happening on Governors Island. Tickets cost $75 for a single day and $140 for a weekend pass, which include 15 beer samples per day. Here at October, we love beer, but we also love music and food and celebrating all of those things at the same time. Join us in doing so at OctFest.
