FIVE POINTS FESTIVAL in BROOKLYN, fueled by LAGUNITAS | June 2 - 3, 2018Five Points Festival fueled by Lagunitas, the premiere east coast designer toy, street, and alternative art festival, is excited to announce the return of the much-anticipated weekend for 2018! Taking place June 2-3rd at the awesome Brooklyn Expo Center, the festival will bring together the shining stars of the designer toy, kaiju, sofubi and alternative art worlds with the best of craft beer and food.
Featuring a dynamic lineup of counterculture artists and artisans from around the world, the event is a two day celebration of toy designers and customizers with an extensive international neo-kaiju and sofubi section, original street art, independent comic artists, gourmet food trucks, and craft beer presented by Clutter Magazine and sponsored by 50 Years of The Outer Spacemen, and Lagunitas Brewing Company.
Enthusiasts familiar with art toys will have the chance to meet some of the world’s most iconic artists and brands like Huck Gee (with his brand new company Superplastic, who just launched their kickstarter and is over 700% funded), Instinctoy, Kidrobot, James Groman, Jason Freeny, Ron English, Super7, Tara McPherson, and Mighty Jaxx on the show floor, where they will be featured alongside artists from the U.S., Japan, Germany, Korea, the U.K. and elsewhere–some showcasing in NYC for the first time, and all with unique, original pieces for sale.
The 2018 beer garden will be managed by Brooklyn-based Threes Brewing Company and will feature several incredibly limited edition brews. First will be a smoked helles lager canned by Kings County Brewing Collective, called Smoked Guru. The craft beer will feature very limited edition label art by British street artist Czee13. Most notable will be the limited, timed release of a New England style IPA called Equal Measures by Sixpoint, crafted specifically for our festival and flavors chosen by Czee13. The specific windows this brew will be available on tap will be announced on social media.
Anyone who has attended mainstream art shows or comic cons will find something completely unique at Five Points—a gathering of visual innovators, rebels, creators, and the misfits that are driving the future of commercial & counterculture art. Tickets to Five Points also include access to a gathering of some of NYC’s outstanding craft breweries and food trucks serving during all regular Festival hours. VIP Ticket holders will gain special early access privileges each day of the Festival, as well as entry to Friday night’s Designer Toy Awards, the world’s premier accolade for designer toy artists, and an all-around excellent party.
