This Summer’s BRIC Celebrate Brooklyn! Lineup Has Arrived

Screen Shot 2016-05-11 at 4.23.57 PM

BRIC Celebrate Brooklyn! Is the longest running outdoor concert series in New York City; 2016 marks its 38th consecutive year. In its time, the festival has hosted more than 2,000 artists—nothing to sneeze at. This year, festival dates run from June 8 through August 13 at Prospect Park Bandshell, and will include a total of 30 performances, the majority of which are free (!!) with a suggested $5 donation.

This summer, Brooklyn soul group Sharon Jones & The Dap-Kings kicks off programming, and in subsequent weeks a diverse mix of music, film, dance, and multimedia performances (presented on an absolutely enormous bandshell screen, the largest, apparently, in the entire city: 50 feet wide and 21 high) will follow. Food from Brooklyn’s The Farm on Adderley and The Good Batch will be on site.

Only seven shows this summer will cost you money, and those funds support all the free stuff. But, if you shell out, it will be worth it because you can see Tame Impala (June 14 and 15), Ray LaMontagne (June 22), and Beirut (August 2), as a sampling. And there are good movies—for free—like Run Lola Run, and Labyrinth.

Here is your full line up! So plan ahead, and celebrate our fine borough.
