Northern Isolation was an experimental music and arts festival and record label based in Duluth, Minnesota, founded, organized, and ran by Dean Berlinerblau.

The festival served as a vehicle for experimental art forms by encouraging free expression and comradery. It provided a platform for a diverse range of talented and underrepresented artists to perform and exhibit their work – including experimental electronic, indie, hardcore punk, and metal musicians as well as designers, drawers, painters, and video artists.

Northern Isolation was an unorthodox portion of the Duluth music and arts scene.
