Every summer New Yorkers look forward to the mostly free Celebrate Brooklyn! Festival.
The concert series held annually in Prospect Park’s bandshell highlights a variety of artists to please the taste of all music lovers.
This year, Celebrate Brooklyn! is bringing some of us back to high school by showcasing the Barenaked Ladies, Ben Folds Five and Guster on July 30. This is one of the shows that will require a ticket.
For those nostalgic of the early 2000s, Shaggy, of “It Wasn’t Me” fame, will perform on August 9.
Other performances to look forward to include Belle and Sebastian on July 11, Beck on Aug 4 and the live score of to Oscar-nominated Beasts of the Southern Wild by Dan Romer, Benh Zeitlin, & The Wordless Music Orchestra on August 8.
They Might Be Giants will bring Celebrate Brooklyn! to an end on August 10.
